This is not “better regulation” but pettifogging interventionism by those who do not understand the profession they purport to be regulating and have service delivery levels which most law firms would be ashamed of. Absolutely – something must be done. Reply Link Anonymous 8 October 2012 at 16:46 The Law Society should be challenging the SRA on behalf of its members in a similar way to the medical defence union? Most solicitors do not have the resources to challenge the SRA. Faced with a challenge from the Law Society the SRA may start to re-think its heavy handedness. Meanwhile, any organisation that’s regulated by the MOJ can do what it likes, their regulation seems non-existant.

The strategy is, and always has been, to destroy small firms and allow large investors in ABS’s to dominate.

It would be a good idea to get this rubbish regulator out of the insurance biz, and while the profession is at it, don’t all insure in the same day. Pretty pathetic performance all around, from what I”ve seen. Lot of poor-quality magistrates, too, which is a great pity for the earnest and diligent.
