CLLS gets go-ahead to represent the City’s elite

Forty-three of London’s biggest law firms have handed the City of London Law Society (CLLS) a mandate to be their representational and campaigning body.

The 43 firms voted unanimously last week (30 March) to make the CLLS their official representative. In effect it will act as City law firms’ trade union, a representative voice on issues such as Clementi, the role solicitors play in the success of the City of London and even corporate and social responsibility programmes.
