There is a suggestion in this that we aren't going to see radical developments in the way barristers do business just yet. The use of such entities may indeed be a mechanism for providing the same sort of services in a more economically efficient way. It is worth remembering that a similar trend was apparent when the SRA started licensing ABS's and arguably it has only been fairly recently that there have been signs of genuine innovation in their use (for instance the spate of local authority ABS's coming on stream).
