The Mark of Regulation
The Mark of Regulation is a logo indicating that a Costs Lawyer is regulated by the Costs Lawyer Standards Board. You can use it as a badge of professionalism to highlight your regulatory status. You might want to use it on your email signature, letterhead, website or promotional material.
Use by employers
The CLSB regulates individuals, not organisations. For this reason, the Mark of Regulation is intended primarily for use by you personally.
The Mark of Regulation can be used by your employer – at your discretion – to promote your regulatory status, so long as this does not cause confusion for clients or members of the public about the scope of regulation. By way of example, generic use of the Mark on the website homepage of a business that employs both regulated and unregulated individuals is likely to be misleading. However, use of the Mark on a page of the same business’ website that relates only to regulated Costs Lawyers is less likely to be misleading.
