The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has welcomed the Competition and
Markets Authority's report following its market study into the
supply of legal services in England and Wales.
BSB Director General, Dr Vanessa Davies said: "Improving access
to justice, promoting the interests of consumers and promoting
competition in the provision of legal services are key objectives
for all legal regulators. The Bar Standards Board welcomes the
CMA's report and looks forward to working with them and other legal
regulators to take forward their recommendations."
