ABSTRACT

If implemented in its current form, the Legal Disciplinary Partnership will mark a revolution not only in terms of who is allowed to provide legal services, hut also in terms of the management and ownership of legal organisations, paving the way for outside ownership for the first time.

However, in the legal sector, the truth is that the large law firms moved away some time ago from management that involved every partner participating in all decision-making.
