1.2 he is not a manager or owner of a recognised body or licensable where all the other managers or owners
1.2.1 have less than 3 years experience practising as a lawyer in a firm regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority unless the arrangements have first been approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

1.3 Mr Somper shall immediately inform any actual or prospective employer, co-manager, or co-owner of these conditions and the reasons for their imposition.
1.4 He attends courses accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority on the new SRA Handbook (replacing the Solicitors Code of Conduct) and SRA Accounts Rules 2011 within 6 months of the date of notification of this decision and provides confirmation of the completion of this course (in the form of a certificate or letter of notification from the course provider) when he next applies for a practising certificate.
Mr Somper is subject to Regulation 3.1 of the SRA Practising Regulations 2011, as detailed above, as a consequence of regulatory matters.
