Changes to the Legal Profession Act 2007 commence today

Changed costs disclosure obligations for law practices resulting in an increase in the full costs disclosure threshold from $1,500 to $3,000 with abbreviated costs disclosure required for those matters from $1,500 to $3,000 commenced from today. QLS has prepared a Disclosure Notice and Engagement Precedent for matters below $3000 which may assist practitioners.

Practitioners can also access our Costs Disclosure Checklists.

QLS members are also welcomed to book a complimentary Practice Advisory Service visit to discuss the changes.
