Looking to the future

16 August 2016

We are consulting on changes to the way we regulate individuals and firms to allow greater flexibility for solicitors and to foster innovation. The looking to the future consultation on flexibility and public protection is running alongside the consultation on the accounts rules, both of which will close on 21 September 2016.

We’ve had lots of interest about the detail of our proposals – which is great! To help you respond to the consultations, we’ve provided answers to some of the most common questions below. We’ll continue to post answers to questions throughout the consultation period – so keep them coming. If you have a question that hasn’t been answered, please send us your question and we’ll do our best to respond.
