The Law Society request for information re SMP cuts

The Law Society is trying to understand the impact that the drop in billing due to Covid-19 has had on SMPs. If you would like to participate and are happy to talk to the Law Society, please answer the below questions by e-mail: defendinglegalaid@lawsociety.org.uk

  1. Has your SMP been cut by the LAA since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic?
  2. If so what has the impact been on your firm?
  3. Is your billing in the process of dropping to the point where you would expect a cut to your SMP shortly?
  4. If so, what impact might this have on your firm?
