Restrictions on Holdings of Shares in NAHL Group plc

Under the Legal Services Act 2007, there are rules as to the holding of restricted interests in licenced law firms. In this context, a restricted interest is 10% or more of the shares of the licensed law firm or the ultimate parent company.

As a result, SRA consent is required should any persons who are non-authorised in the context of the Legal Services Act 2007 seek to acquire a shareholding of 10% or more in NAHL Group plc. It is a criminal offence for any non-authorised person to acquire a restricted interest without first notifying the SRA or to acquire a restricted interest having notified the SRA but before obtaining their consent. The SRA also has power to force the divestment of any shareholding which breaches this rule via the courts.
