Defending trainee solicitors

A trainee solicitor’s life can be demanding. It can be made even harder once you are on your chosen career path, if issues arise concerning your training contract, professional conduct, or your suitability for the profession as far as the SRA is concerned.

As a trainee solicitor, you are subject to the requirements of the SRA Standards and Regulations 2019. Regardless of your trainee status you will be expected to meet and maintain all aspects of professional standards.

We can help you defend allegations whether from your employer or the SRA relating to your professional conduct during the course of your training. We are highly experienced in successfully dealing with the SRA and its disciplinary procedures, and we have an employment team which is used to dealing with employment issues for trainee solicitors.

Or perhaps you have a problem concerning disclosure of a character or suitability issue and are worried that you will have difficulty obtaining admission under the SRA Assessment of Character and Suitability Rules 2019.  We can advise fully and have helped clients successfully navigate the SRA’s suitability tests to ensure they are admitted.
