Incorporated Legal Practices and Multi-Disciplinary Partnerships

The Legal Profession Act 2007 (the Act) like its counterpart legislation in the other states and territories allows law firms in Queensland a wider choice of business structures than the traditional sole practitioner and partnership arrangements. It allowed law firms from 1 July 2007 to form multi-disciplinary partnerships (MDPs) or to form companies and to trade as incorporated legal practices (ILPs), and it established a new framework for regulating their delivery of legal services.

In this part we provide information on:

  • What are ILPs and MDPs;
  • Obligations of legal practitioner directors;
  • Our approach.
