Solicitors Regulation Authority – tender for panel firm services

We regulate solicitors, law firms and their managers and employees in England and Wales, protecting consumers and supporting the rule of law and the administration of justice.

We currently have in place a panel of law firms providing us with legal services relating to disciplinary proceedings and a second panel providing litigation and legal advice services. In place of that arrangement we now wish to appoint one panel of firms capable of providing all of the following services:

  • Prosecution and other forms of advocacy before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT)
  • Dealing with appeals against decisions of the SDT
  • Dealing with regulatory appeals before the SDT and the High Court
  • Dealing with court proceedings arising from interventions into law firms
  • Representation in recovery litigation, including by way of conditional fee arrangements where appropriate, such as:
    • Compensation Fund subrogation claims
    • Tracing actions / injunctions
  • Defending and pursuing other types of claims and applications on behalf of the SRA
  • Providing legal advice as may be required from time to time.

A sound disciplinary record is essential. Successful firms must be committed to promoting equality and diversity. You must be able to demonstrate your experience and expertise in professional regulatory work and your capability of providing the services to an excellent standard.

If you are interested in tendering, you will need to apply for a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) by contacting dptenders@sra.org.uk by 4pm on Friday, 12 August 2016.

Responses to the PQQ must be submitted by 4pm on Wednesday, 31 August 2016.

For further information or if you would like any information in any alternative format, please contact jennifer.johnson@sra.org.uk
