Legal & Regulatory

The following information is provided as required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. It is also included in the terms of business we supply to our clients before starting work. We will be happy to answer any questions you have, about any of the following provisions:

Services – Insurance Mediation Activities:

We are not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. However, we are included on the register maintained by the Financial Conduct Authority so that we can carry on insurance mediation activity, which is broadly the advising on, selling and administration of insurance contracts. This part of our business, including arrangements for complaints or redress if something goes wrong, is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The register can be accessed via the Financial Conduct Authority website at www.fsa.gov.uk/register. The Law Society is a designated professional body for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 but responsibility for regulation and complaints handling has been separated from the Law Society’s representative functions. The Solicitors Regulation Authority is the independent regulatory body of the Law Society and the Office for Legal Complaints is the independent complaints handling body of the Law Society.

Incidental Investment Business:

If during this transaction you need advice on investments, we may refer you to someone who is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. However, as we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, we may be able to provide certain limited investment services where these are closely linked to the legal work we are doing for you.
