ReviewSolicitors is an established comparison website in the legal sector. Along with others, it has access to the data about CLC-regulated entities, published by the CLC for use by comparison websites. That is basic data about practices’ locations and contact details.
A number of CLC-regulated practices have contacted the CLC following approaches from ReviewSolicitors. Those practices have inferred that the CLC is working with the site or that CLC firms are required to join the site.
The CLC does not require practices to work with any particular comparison website, though we believe that they can be a good way to reach potential clients. You can find out more in the report on our research into the use of quality indicators and comparison websites and we will be taking forward more work on this in 2024.
