SRA Transparency Rules Webinar

The SRA Transparency Rules (often wrongly referred to as the Price Transparency Rules) came into force in December 2018.

The SRA has reviewed the websites of over 600 firms to check compliance with its Transparency Rules. Although some firms are fully compliant, the SRA feel that most firms have room for improvement.  The SRA has started formal regulatory action against a small number of firms that remain non-compliant despite earlier engagement.  In the light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the SRA say that they will be taking a proportionate approach to enforcement in this area, recognising that many firms may need to adapt to working remotely and, what for many, is a material downturn in business.

However, it is important that firms do everything they can to provide the information that will help the public to find and understand the legal services they need, in line with the Rules.  Therefore, on 28 May 2020 we held a webinar to assist firms in understanding the SRA’s expectations of their website.
