Lawyers and Conveyancers Bill

The New Zealand Business Round Table has told parliament that the Lawyers and Conveyancers Bill is overly prescriptive and should be reconsidered. It feels that the legal profession should be less restrictive and that law firms need to be more flexible in the way they organise themselves. Only then will the best interests of the public be served.

Furthermore, they feel that lawyers should be allowed to organise themselves into any business form they want and that the definition of work that will be reserved for lawyers is far too broad. The breaking of monopolies held by lawyers over certain types of work, such as conveyancing, has also not been addressed.
