Solicitors Regulation Authority - Practising Certificate Conditions

< Business & Regulatory Crime Info

Re B:

On our client was charged with a criminal offence and he reported the matters to the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The SRA imposed conditions upon our client’s practising certificate, but would not relax those requirements due to the nature of the allegation. We appealed against their decision and asked for the matter to be reconsidered. We won our client's appeal; his conditions were relaxed (but not lifted) which did allow him to continue his professional duties.

On our client was acquitted after a trial and we asked for the conditions to be discharged. More importantly, we persuaded the SRA not to publish any details on its website. 

Re D:

Our client, a solicitor, had been convicted of a criminal offence. The SRA had put the issues before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, and we were instructed to make representation to the tribunal about the professional status of our client and his fitness to continue as a solicitor.
