Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

Section 56 of the Solicitors Act 1974 (c. 47) establishes a committee which may make orders about the remuneration of solicitors in respect of non-contentious business. Paragraph 54 of Schedule 16 to the Legal Services Act 2007 (c. 29) amends that section, altering (among other changes) the purposes for which orders may be made. This Order prescribes the general principles to be applied when determining the remuneration of solicitors in respect of non-contentious business.
