Law Society Advertising Regulations

Dear all,

I have been contacted by a local Galway firm that has raised concerns regarding the legality of advertisements that have appeared recently in the Galway Advertiser on behalf of a firm of solicitors.

It is submitted that the advertisements amount to a breach of the Solicitors [Advertising] Regulations 2002 [SI 518 of 2002] and I have been asked to write to the Law Society on behalf of the GSBA to bring this alleged violation to its attention.

The matter will be discussed in detail at the next meeting of the GSBA committee and I would invite all members to make submissions to me in advance of this meeting taking place. I would ask for all observations in this regard to be sent to me no later than 13:00 on Friday the 20 July 2018.
