Regulating your Legal Firm

Regulating your Legal Firm 

Legal services providers who offer reserved and regulated legal services are required to be regulated as a legal entity by an approved regulator, even if the individual(s) is already regulated in their own capacity.

So if your firm provides any of the reserved and/or regulated legal services listed below you will need regulation at organisational level over and above individual authorisation or practice rights:

  • Conduct of litigation
  • Exercise rights of audience
  • Probate activities
  • Conveyancing
  • Immigration advice and services

If you provide one or more of these services, or intend to do so, please read more in our entity regulation pages dedicated to finding out about regulating your law firm with CILEx. As an Approved Regulator under the Legal Services Act 2007, CILEx is authorised to regulate all legal firms with a requirement for entity regulation.

Here you can view our guide to Entity Authorisation.
