Scotland: A commercial reality
As the senior partner of a cross-border UK law firm, I am generally in favour of many of Sir David Clementi's proposed legal reforms, the measures outlined in the current Legal Services Bill and, in particular, the one specific area where I feel a change would be most significant - the enticing prospect of alternative business structures (ABSs) and the injection of external investment into the UK's law firms. I am sure the prospect is tantalising for many of the larger firms in the UK although, naturally, change would not suit every legal practice.
