The Referral Fee Ban: a coordinated approach to regulation

Referral Fee Ban: Regulatory Relationships

As part of our approach to coordinating the provisions of the Legal Aid Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders (LASPO) Act 2012, we have established a robust working relationship with our regulatory counterparts, the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Claims Management Regulator. 

These relationships are formally underpinned by memoranda of understanding (MoUs) as well as working documents that facilitate information sharing, evidence gathering and enforcement action; this ensures effective regulation of all firms and markets within our remit.
