ABS VictoryABS Debate Milestone

Non-Lawyer Majority Ownership effectively off the table

On September 24, the Law Society of Upper Canada signaled that it will not include non-lawyer majority ownership of law firms in its considerations of regulatory changes to the ways that legal services are delivered in Ontario.

For more than two years, OTLA has been actively working on this file, taking the lead in educating Benchers and the profession as a whole on Alternative Business Structures (ABS). Thanks to the important and ongoing efforts of our ABS Committee, OTLA will continue its advocacy and engagement with the non-lawyer ownership debate both in Ontario and across Canada.
