The Future for Law Firm Investment? (2012)

8 Pages | 175.62 KB |

slaughter and may BRIEFIN G a u G u st 2012 ABS’s – The Future for Law Firm Investment? Jeff Triggs 1. InTroducTIon 1.1 What is an aBs? ABS stands for the rather unexciting term “Alternative Business Structure”. It is a creature of the Legal Services Act 2007. Its purpose is to allow law firms to be authorised and regulated to provide legal services whilst non-lawyers have an interest in their ownership and/or management. As such they create the opportunity for: (A) investment in law firms by non-lawyers, from individuals to large corporates; and (B) the establishment of multi-disciplinary partnerships, where lawyers share a business, profits and management with other professionals. An ABS is not a new form of body corporate or partnership. Converting to an ABS does not require a firm to change its corporate or partnership status. It does not require a transfer of business, assets, liabilities or

In small firms this may be a single all-purpose administrator, while large firms will have a full C-Suite of business, finance, strategy, IT, marketing, and HR experts, among others. However, across firms of all sizes, professional staffers (regardless of their expertise and experience) often find their efforts hindered to one degree or another by their ‘non- lawyer’ status among partners in the firm. How would you assess the standing of senior administrators in your law firm? Rate on a 0 to 10 scale: 0 = Administrators are available to advise, but any individual partner can override their decisions. 10 = Administrators have the full confidence of the partnership to act as they see
