The FLA continues to work on the LAO issues including changes to the tariff, changes to income eligibility and billing irritants. Keep your comments coming! Over the next few weeks we are expecting a number of announcements from LAO that we hope will be positive for the bar and our clients. We will keep you posted as news comes in on any changes to LAO.
Another reminder that the Law Society of Upper Canada is seeking input on its September 2014 discussion paper on Alternate Business Structures. The Law Society of Upper Canada is examining how the practice of law is organized in other jurisdictions and considering whether such structures are desirable in Ontario. The discussion paper as well as background reading materials are all on the LSUC website. The FLA will be providing its position on this issue as well.
