If I delivered only non-reserved activities, do I need to be regulated?
Ans: Whilst you do not need to be regulated as an entity, as a CILEx member you remain regulated as an individual by CILEx Regulation. You will need to comply with the CILEx Code of Conduct and we encourage members to refer to the rules and guidance provided to regulated entities to assist them in managing risk in their business.
Can I be regulated by CILEx Regulation if I only provide non-reserved activities?
Ans: Currently we are unable to regulate the entities providing non-reserved activities. However, all members are regulated by CILEx Regulation and so need to comply with the CILEx Code of Conduct. We encourage members to refer to the rules and guidance provided to regulated entities to assist them in managing risk in their business.
If I have an existing relationship with a firm of solicitors to deal with any reserved activities on my behalf (for example probate) do I have to change this relationship?
Ans: Members who are not looking to obtain practice rights can continue any existing relationship, as long as they comply with the Legal Services Act 2007 and the CILEx Code of Conduct, in how these legal services are provided.
