Aren’t practice management reviews just another way of finding evidence to support an allegation in the discipline process?

No. The discipline process is completely separate from the Practice Management Review Program. Reviewers are not part of the discipline stream of the Law Society and their reports are not provided to the Director of Professional Responsibility. Results of a practice management review will only form the basis of an allegation where the management of the member’s practice appears to rise to the level of conduct deserving of sanction or the reviewer sees evidence of professional misconduct.
