Most applications follow the steps below. We will discuss this with you in the telephone call.
Step 1. An introductory phone call. We will contact you to arrange an introductory phone call with an appropriate member of the Licensing Team to establish in principle whether the proposed investment, ownership, governance and business models can be licensed by the CLC.
Step 2. Come and meet us. Applicants are invited to attend a licensing meeting with the CLC Licensing Team. It’s important that owners and managers attend this meeting because we will be discussing the investment and governance elements of your application. In addition we will explain the CLC Licensing Outcomes and what we expect from you.
Step 3. Preparing the information for your digital application. In addition to the information set out in the Practice guidance documents, you should ensure that you have:
Step 4. Complete and submit your application through the online platform, DocuSign with all relevant supporting information uploaded.
Step 5. We review your application. We will have agreed a submission timeline with you at the licensing meeting. Straightforward applications are reviewed and determined within the timescales stated in the licensing framework. More complex applications may take longer.
Step 6. The CLC Determination. The determination outcome is focused on an assessment of the ability of the owners, managers and key personnel to provide compliant legal services and manage the risks associated to the legal services.
Step 7. Informing you of the outcome of your application: We will confirm the CLC’s decision by email.
