June 2017 - Bar Standards Board's Competition and Markets Authority action plan

The Bar Standards Board has published its plan to address the recommendations contained in the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) report into legal services.

The plan focuses on improving standards of consumer transparency regarding the services provided by barristers, their fees and the availability of redress. With similar plans being put in place by the other legal regulators, the aim is to enable consumers to compare legal service providers more easily.

The action plan is available here.
