The Intellectual Property Regulation Board

Remedies Programme Implementation Group

All the legal regulators met with the CMA in January to determine a joint working programme. Follow this link to the CMA website where the minutes of the first meeting have been published.

The next meeting will be on 12 May.

Details of the agreed actions will be published on this page. In the interim:

  • The Solicitors Regulation Authority has announced that it¬†is working on plans to require law firms to publish prices for conveyancing, divorce and private client work.
  • The Legal Services Board Consumer Panel has published a Report outlining key criteria for success, intending that the criteria be the foundations for the new price transparency approach but also warning against “information overload.”
  • IPReg has established a Reserve to support implementation including any necessary additional resource.
