Setting up an ABS firm - CILEx Regulation

Tag:Abs Law Firm

Tag: Abs Law Firm


Setting up as an ABS allows a firm to have non-lawyers in its ownership and management structure. This can bring in key people with valuable experience and skills. The non-lawyer can be involved through investment or as a partner or director.

Abs Law Firm


An ABS arrangement can work well where:


  • an established lawyer-owned firm wants to take on a non-lawyer partner
  • an established law firm wants its non-lawyer practice manager to become a co-owner
  • a non-legal business sees legal services as complementary and sets up a standalone business


We welcome applications from prospective firms whose:


  • legal services are connected to the firm’s core business
  • legal services are ringfenced in a separate company
  • head of legal practice is a manager or owner
