The Law Society of Scotland has announced that the reconvened special general meeting on alternative business structures (ABS) will be held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh on Friday 16 April at 10 am.
The initial part of the SGM on Friday 25 March was adjourned to allow for further discussions between the Law Society, the Scottish Law Agents Society and others.
The SGM was held following a requisition by SLAS, which called for a debate over its concerns about proposals to allow external ownership of alternative business structures in the legal services market.
Ian Smart, president of the Law Society of Scotland, said: “I can confirm that discussions are ongoing, but it was important that we set a date for the reconvened meeting.
“The venue has now been secured and I hope that as many of our members as possible can make it along – especially those who took the time to come along to the SGM on 25 March – to continue the meeting and participate in the continuing debate.”
A formal notice to all members will be issued this week.
