SRA inspections and investigations
We regularly act for solicitors facing Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) investigations. If the SRA tells you during the course of an investigation that it intends to interview you, we strongly recommend that you contact us or another firm specialising in solicitors’ disciplinary proceedings.
An SRA request to attend an interview is often the first clear sign that the SRA believe there has been serious misconduct. The interview is likely to be taped and your responses could be used as evidence against you in subsequent disciplinary proceedings.
The conduct of the interview can often have a significant affect on the outcome of the investigation. We often attend interviews with clients and then represent them on the next stages of the investigation.
