Prices and complaints data must be published says Solicitors Regulation Authority
Law firms may be required to publish price information on their websites next year. The Solicitors Regulation Authority confirmed its long-held ambition to ensure consumers have more information about their potential legal services provider. Any changes would be implemented no earlier than autumn next year.
The SRA suggests firms do this only for certain types of work, such as conveyancing, wills or personal injury.
Paul Philip, SRA chief executive, said the aim is to make it easier for people with legal problems to “find the right service at the right price”.
