Update: Law Society issues updated guidance on information on letterheads, emails and websites
The Law Society has updated its practice note on information on letterheads, emails and websites
As part of solicitors' duty to provide a proper standard of service to clients, they must supply them with the information they need to make informed decisions about the services they require and how these will be delivered.
The updated practice note includes detailed advice on:
The following sections have been updated:
- the information that solicitors need to supply to the client;
- the requirement for publicity not to be misleading; and
- specific information for companies, partnerships, LLPs and registered European and foreign lawyers.
Websites have been added to the list of the SRA's definition of 'publicity'.
The definition of partner and when to refer to someone in your practice as partner has been further clarified.
