He can be a partner in the law firm he has joined and remain a full member of the Bar, regulated by the Bar Standards Board, even if the law firm is regulated by the SRA. The headline should really be ‘The Bar continues to integrate with Solicitors Firms’. (As we move steadily toward a fused profession…..)

It is actually a Limited Company and their “partners” are really shareholders and/or company directors.

Quite possibly naff, but it’s true all the same. Reply Link John Flood 2 September 2013 at 15:18 I agree with Bar None here. This is an interesting development where an English litigation boutique looks just like its US counterparts. This is a kind of fusion (informal, ad hoc) where lawyers can choose how they want to practise in their own kind of organization. These are the innovations anticipated by the Legal Services Act 2007 and facilitated by it. All the focus has been on ABS but this is as important a development as the ABS.
