An SRA Investigation may be one of the most stressful experiences you face as a Solicitor. Expert legal advice from our experienced professional team of defence Lawyers will ensure that you keep control of the investigation, and know what to expect at each step of the way.
We will guide you through the regulatory minefield and at all times aim to quickly and efficiently minimise the impact of an inspection or investigation by the SRA upon your reputation or your ability to practise law.
We provide advice, representation and advocacy through:
• Inspections by the SRA’s Forensic Investigations and Practice Standards Units
• Complaints and appeals before Adjudication Panels
• Disciplinary proceedings before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal
• Applications and Appeals to the Divisional Court.
The earlier we are instructed in the regulatory process, the better the chances of a successful conclusion to regulatory and disciplinary issues.
Slater and Gordon's team is well known for recognising and advancing legitimate defences for Solicitors and for steering both Lawyers and law firms through this difficult area.
When things go wrong we can provide you with the advantage of presenting explanations to the Solicitors Regulation Authority in the best possible light, based upon our extensive experience of doing just that for clients nationwide.
We are instructed by private individuals, partnerships, LLPs, Limited Companies and Professional Indemnity insurers alike. If fees are to be paid privately we can agree fixed staged fees with an affordable payment plan.
We can offer you the key advantage of our complete and comprehensive knowledge and understanding of all aspects of solicitors’ regulatory and disciplinary processes.
