Osbornes reappointed as intervention agents by the Solicitors Regulation Authority 13 Aug 2019

Osbornes is one of only 24 firms recently reappointed to the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s Panel of Intervention Agents.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority is an independent body that regulates more than 100,000 solicitors in England and Wales, as well as registered European lawyers and registered foreign lawyers.

Intervention agents intervene in solicitors’ practices where there is a serious risk to their clients. Agents are appointed to act on behalf of the SRA. They remove client papers and distribute them in accordance with clients’ instructions. They also identify and deal with urgent matters and attempt to distribute the client account monies, where it is possible to do so.

The Intervention Team is headed by Guy Osborn and carries out interventions in and around the London Area on behalf of the SRA. If you previously instructed a firm which has been intervened into and you believe that they were holding either papers or money on your behalf please contact Ciru Longden atcirulongden@osbornes.net who will be able to advise you further.
