Like all solicitors in England and Wales, the lawyers at Luqmani Thompson & Partners operate within strict professional rules. We take these rules seriously and frequently advise fellow lawyers on how they can ensure they are fully compliant with the regulatory framework. We also advise other professionals on regulatory matters and we have developed a particular expertise in the regulation of educational institutions and funding authorities.
Working With Solicitors To Ensure Regulatory Compliance
All solicitors must follow the professional Code of Conduct and other rules, including Accounts Rules laid down by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The professional repercussions for a solicitor who fails to comply with these rules can be serious.
Taking Preventative Action
At Luqmani Thompson & Partners, we believe prevention is better than cure. We offer carefully structured training sessions and ongoing compliance advice to firms so that intervention by the authorities is avoided. If your firm is the subject of an investigation, our intimate knowledge of how compliance rules are applied in practice means we can offer effective representation. Our immigration work means we are frequently asked to provide training to community groups, such as refugee organisations and other advice groups on issues of regulation.
Challenging Decisions By Educational Institutions In London
Our expertise in challenging government decisions means we are well-equipped to challenge officialdom in other areas, including education. Our lawyers have the insight and creativity to get to grips quickly with the rules governing tightly regulated professions and industries. This enables us to represent employees of institutions as well as students who face charges of misconduct. We can assist with internal appeal mechanisms and adjudicator appeals to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator
