Regulatory & Disciplinary

Solicitors SRA Disciplinary

Solicitors SRA Disciplinary

Solicitors are subject to regulation like any other professional. An investigation by the Solicitors Regulation Authority is a serious matter, and despite your legal knowledge, independent advice is vital.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority has a wide range of powers, and can take any of the following actions:

  • A casework decision;
  • A letter of advice;
  • A finding and warning;
  • A rebuke;
  • A financial penalty up to £2000;
  • A referral to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal – but only if the evidential and public interest test is met.

If a matter is sent to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, and there is a finding against you, that can:

  • Strike you off;
  • Suspend you;
  • Impose an unlimited fine;
  • Make you pay the costs of the tribunal.

Monarch’s team of expert solicitors can give you advice and representation at a tribunal; defend you against investigations; negotiate agreements; and make application for restoration on to the roll of solicitors.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal is an independent statutory tribunal. Usually, we prosecute cases before the tribunal—however, it is possible for members of the public to do so directly. The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal has powers in respect of solicitors, Registered Foreign Lawyers, managers and employees of Solicitors Regulation Authority recognised bodies.

Cases are heard by a panel made up of two solicitors and one lay member.

No. The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal is independent from the Solicitors Regulation Authority, with its members appointed by the Master of the Rolls.
