Contingency Fee Reforms: Is Your Law Firm in Compliance?
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 access to justice for clients. But what does this mean for law firms? There is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding them. Do you still have questions?
On August 16, 2021, Rastin Gluckstein Lawyers is hosting a 1-hour complimentary webinar to help law firms understand the new requirements and to support the legal community as our industry transitions. In this 1-hour webinar, you will hear from Rastin Gluckstein Lawyers’ Jan Marin and Steve Rastin. They implemented 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 will discuss the new contingency fee requirements and the steps your law firm needs to comply with these requirements.
The webinar will review the following:
- The new contingency fee agreement
- The Standard Form and the various options that may be selected
- The Law Society’s “Contingency fees: What you need to know” consumer guide
- Q&A Period with the Panel
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.
