Incorporation of Lawyers

Professional Incorporations Regulations allowing lawyers to incorporate have been approved Dec. 5, 2001 and filed with the Registrar of Regulations on Dec. 6, 2001.  There is a three-step process requiring:

  1. a preliminary application to the Law Society (Law Society Rule 1400, Part 17, and following);
  2. actual incorporation at the Corporations Branch; and
  3. finally an application for a permit (Form C-1) from the Law Society.

The fee for the application to obtain a permit is $200, plus GST, for a total of $210, payable to the Law Society of Saskatchewan.
