A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog [link] that started with the now fateful words: “Newell-Austin v SRA  EWHC 411 (Admin) is the latest case to deal with the question of what is lack of integrity and may finally put to rest the issues around the meaning of the phrase.”
We are still a long way from the finish line but at least with the publication of the Great Repeal Bill: White Paper (“the White Paper”) we have some clarity about the future course of UK domestic law. This blog by Iain Miller is directed at the position in relation to the regulation of law firms.
On 9th February the Divisional Court handed down judgment in Ballard v SRA  EWHC 164 (Admin) on an appeal from a decision of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal. The appeal represent one of the so far few cases that deals with those solicitors providing unbundled legal services or acting as McKenzie friends.
