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 client access to justice. But what does this mean for law firms? There is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding them.
On August 16, 2021, Rastin Gluckstein Lawyers hosted a webinar to help law firms understand the new requirements and support the legal community as our industry transitions. Speakers included Rastin Gluckstein Lawyers‘ Jan Marin and Steve Rastin. They have experience implementing the changes required by the Law Society of Ontario within the firm, including extensive discussions internally and externally with the LSO and benchers. The panel discussed the new contingency fee requirements and the steps your law firm needs to comply with these requirements.
Rastin Gluckstein Lawyers offers full-circle care to our clients, and it also extends to the legal community. We want to bring the community together by collaborating with our colleagues to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Thank you to everyone who tuned into the webinar!
