Initial Report to the Minister of Justice and Equality on MultiDisciplinary Practices

This report, produced by Hook Tangaza, was commissioned through McDowell Purcell Solicitors by the Legal Services Regulatory Authority (“the Authority”) in Ireland. It is intended to assist the Authority in fulfilling its obligations under section 119 of the Legal Services Regulation Act 2015 (“the Act”). Section 119 requires the Authority to make an initial report to the Minister for Justice and Equality (“the Minister”) on the establishment, regulation, monitoring, operation and impact of multi-disciplinary practices (“MDPs”) in the State. This initial report is required to include information on the operation of similar practices in other jurisdictions, the likely consequences for existing models of legal practice in Ireland and the likely impact of MDPs on legal costs, on the provision of legal services to consumers, on access to legal practitioners and on the regulatory objectives set out in the Act.
