Don Foster signs EDM 2263 - ALTERNATIVE BUSINESS STRUCTURES

Don Foster MP has signed EDM 2263 on alternative business structures. The EDM reads:

That this House recognises the concerns of the Solicitor Sole Practitioners Group, which represents a third of the total number of law firms in England and Wales, regarding the introduction of alternative business structures as permitted under Part 5 of the Legal Services Act 2007; is concerned that alternative business structures threaten to undermine the independence of legal advice and reduce access to justice for the most vulnerable; and calls for a debate on legislation relating to alternative business structures.
