The seventh version of the Solicitors Regulation Authority Handbook comes in to force this week. Changes include outcomes dealing with the ban on referral fees in personal injury cases, and the removal of rules put forward in the first phase of the SRA's Red Tape Initiative.
These include removing restrictions on charging by in-house lawyers employed in not-for-profit organisations.
The seventh version of the Handbook can be accessed on the website.
