- Price Transparency Era - Toward the end of 2018 The Solicitors Regulation Authority introduced new rules to ensure clients have the best possible information on solicitor’s fees at the outset. Law firms are now required to publish price and service information on their website for the following areas of law; residential conveyancing, probate and employment tribunal claims to name a few. The aim is to provide greater transparency to clients enabling them to make informed decisions about their legal matter.

The Law on Civil Partnerships:
A Civil Partnership gives couples rights and responsibilities very similar to those of married couples. Civil Partners are entitled to many of the rights and responsibility as married couples, including but not limited to, the same property rights and inheritance tax exemptions and also the ability to get parental responsibility for a partner’s children.
The law relating to Civil Partnership is outlined in The Civil Partnership Act 2004.
