Martin Partington: Spotlight on the Justice System

Keeping the English Legal System under review

Legal choices – website on legal service providers

leave a comment »

One of the recommendations made by the Competition and Market Authority 2016 report on competition in legal services was that there should be a revamp of and better promotion for the Legal Choices website. It was intended that this should be the starting point for customers needing help, information, and guidance on how to navigate the market and purchase services.

The website is run by the frontline regulators themselves (Solicitors Regulation Authority, Bar Standards Board, etc.), and aims to provide factual information about who is regulated, how they are regulated, and how to find information out about those who are regulated, their costs, and what can be expected from them by way of service. It does not sell services or products.

I have not noted its existence before – but this is an omission I now seek to rectify. It contains a great deal of useful information. It should, as the CMA proposed, be much better promoted to the wider public.

To visit the website go to https://www.legalchoices.org.uk/.
