Solicitors Regulation Authority interventions

The legal profession is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) who aim to serve the public interest and protect consumers of legal services. In this capacity, if it is identified that a solicitor’s practice needs to be closed down to protect public interest the SRA will ‘intervene’.

All documents and papers that relate to its clients, including files and accounting records are removed from the intervened firm. To assist with this the SRA appoints Intervention Agents to look after the client’s files and redistribute as requested.

SRA interventions

We understand that this can be a distressing and confusing time for clients of firms that have been closed down. There are 8 firms in the country who can be appointed to act as agents. However, only one agent is appointed to a firm that is closed down. As Intervention Agents we aim to assist you as efficiently as possible to help guide you through the process. We have worked with the SRA on the following interventions:
