Company and Business Names Consultation

Response of the Law Society of England and Wales

May  2013


The Law Society is the representative body for over 166,000 solicitors in England and Wales.  It negotiates on behalf of the profession, and lobbies regulators, Government and others. This response has been prepared on behalf of the Society by members of its Company Law Committee, which is made up of senior and specialist lawyers practising in this field.

The Law Society welcomes this opportunity to comment on the consultation paper. We are pleased that the Government has acknowledged that the current rules and regulations in relation to company names has been causing problems for practitioners and appears to have resulted in some unintended consequences.
