14 Jul Contingency Fee Reforms: Is Your Law Firm In Compliance?
On July 1, 2021, a set of reforms to the contingency fee regime came into effect. These reforms are intended to improve consumer protection through enhanced transparency, fairness and access to justice for clients. While there are significant improvements to these new rules, there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding them.
On August 16, 2021, Gluckstein Lawyers is hosting a 1-hour webinar to help law firms understand the new requirements and to support the legal community as our industry transitions. In this 1-hour webinar, you will hear from Gluckstein Lawyers‘ Jan Marin and Steve Rastin. They implemented the changes within the firm as required by the Law Society of Ontario (LSO), including having extensive discussions internally and externally with the LSO and benchers. The panel will discuss the new contingency fee requirements and the steps your law firm needs to take to comply with these requirements.
