Become a CLC Regulated Firm

Find out more information about becoming a CLC Regulated Firm including setting up an Alternative Business Structure (ABS), as well as Setting up a Recognised Body.

An Alternative Business Structure is a relatively new form of business structure where external investment in the business can be made from non-lawyers in professional management or ownership roles.

By comparison, a Recognised Body means that the practice must be wholly owned by the authorised person/s who will operate and manage the business and deliver the regulated services direct to the public.
