multidisciplinary practice

multidisciplinary practice (MDP)

an organization that offers a range of professional services such as accountancy and law. Traditionally lawyers have been prevented from entering such arrangements because of the core ethical value of independence and service to the client in hand while at the same time honouring obligations to the court and justice. However, throughout the world demand from consumers, competition regulators and the large multinational accountancy firms is bringing pressure for change.
