Though I cast no aspersions on the character of anyone associated with Brilliant Law, I do wonder how many prospective clients might shy away from instructing this new body to handle their legal affairs if they knew that the big money behind its launch came from the profits of the gambling industry.

Apart from through reading the Gazette and the financial press, how will potential ‘punters’ be able to ascertain the pedigree of the product they are about to buy into if they decide to source their legal services from an alternative business structure?
