Today the CLSB received top marks from the Legal Services Board in its latest assessment of the UK legal regulators’ performance.

The only other organisation to achieve this was the Solicitors Regulation Authority – the largest of the sector’s regulators – proving that regulators of all shapes and sizes can be equally effective at protecting clients across the legal services market.

The report said “The CLSB has provided us with good overall assurance about its performance and has continued to demonstrate the good practice we highlighted in last year’s report whilst striving to continue to become an even more effective regulator. Its approach can be held up as a model for smaller regulators.”
