They require all firms authorised and regulated by the SRA to display specified information on their websites if they provide certain types of legal services. The purpose of the Rules is to ensure people have accurate and relevant information about a solicitor or firm when they are considering purchasing legal services. They are intended to help members of the public and small businesses make informed choices, improving competition in the legal market.
The firm has failed to publish the mandatory details of costs and service information and its complaints procedure on its website and has breached rules 1.1 and 2.1 of the Transparency Rules.
The firm was issued with a rebuke and ordered to pay costs of £300.
