SRA slashes law firm roster after move to handle more work in-house

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has unveiled its slimmed down prosecutions panel, as the body plans to handle more work in-house.


Seven firms made it onto the SRA’s panel to advise on disciplinary proceedings and regulatory appeals. That figure is down from the 16 that were appointed following the SRA’s previouspanel review in 2009 (2 June 2009).

The seven successful firms are: Bevan Brittan, Capsticks, David Barton Solicitor Advocate, Devonshires Solicitors, Jonathan Goodwin Solicitor Advocate, Morgan Cole and Penningtons Solicitors.

The new appointments became effective from 1 January and will run for an initial three-year period, renewable annually for two more years.

A spokesperson for the SRA said that the slimmed-down panel was linked to the body’s decision to handle more disciplinary work in-house.
