SRA Intervention: Who is involved?
Who is the Solicitors Regulation Authority?
The Solicitors Regulation Authority is a public body that governs the standards of conduct and practice of all solicitors in England and Wales.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority achieves this aim in a wide variety of ways, from setting the standards which have to be met in order to qualify as a solicitor, to providing information to the public about different firms of solicitors. As part of their regulatory duties, the Solicitors Regulation Authority has the power to close down a solicitor's practice in certain circumstances. This is known as an 'intervention'.
Who is Blake Morgan?
In order to carry out their intervention duties effectively the Solicitors Regulation Authority appoints intervention agents to assist in the execution and day-to-day administration of each intervention. Blake Morgan is an appointed intervention agent. We take possession of all papers and monies held by the solicitor's practice on behalf of the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
