The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) have commissioned independent research to conduct an in-depth examination of the unreserved legal services market in England & Wales.

Frontier Economics, one of Europe’s leading economic insight consultancies, will deliver the new research, which will aim to:

  •  better comprehend the size and scope of the market for unreserved legal services offered by both regulated and unregulated providers 
  • identify potential risks and opportunities for consumers that the unregulated sector may present.

The findings of the final report, which is expected before the end of the year, will be used by the SRA and other stakeholders to help shape future thinking about how to improve access to legal services while maintaining proportionate levels of public protection.
