Regulatory Solicitors & Regulatory Lawyers & Regulation Solicitors & Regulation Lawyers


We are a modern and progressive regulatory law firm and we operate new legal services business model, which combines the best aspects of a traditional law firm, with cutting edge developments in the modern provision of legal services.


What differentiates us from most traditional solicitors practises is that we operate a hybrid legal business services model. This means that in addition to employing lawyers we also appoint consultant solicitors who deliver legal services on our behalf. Many of our consultant solicitors work remotely from low cost premises and using the latest IT infrastructure deliver fast, effective and efficient legal services.    


Our business model has a very low cost base. With the exception of our administrative headquarters we only use serviced offices for basic needs such as telephone answering. Any additional fees for using meeting rooms are only incurred, as and when we use the rooms. Where possible we pass these cost savings back to our clients in the form of costs effective fee rates. We do not incur the significant cost overheads, including expensive premises, of more traditional law firms.


Our experienced team of regulatory solicitors have extensive experience of advising on regulatory matters, and considering and reviewing statutory regulation. Our regulatory lawyers take time to understand your business model, and only then will they consider the implications of regulation upon your business.


Where possible our regulatory solicitors will determine a road map to ensure that you are aware of any regulation that may affect your business, and how best to deal with it. Our litigation solicitors also have expertise in defending your position in the event of a dispute with, or an investigation by, your regulator.
