Reminder that branding used by the Legal Services Commission was phased out in 2013 and old logos should not be used.
Providers should not use the following names to describe their organisation – either verbally or in writing:
Providers should also avoid using any name which could reasonably be confused with any of the above terms. This provision is contained in both the civil and criminal and criminal contracts.
You should note that permission ended on 30 June 2013 to use old names and logos associated with the now defunct Legal Services Commission (LSC).
If you still have stocks of headed notepaper featuring either the CDS or CLS logo you should talk to your contract manager.
A branding announcement was made online in November 2012, which included giving notice about ending the use of CDS and CLS logos – see below.
