Our two directors can assist clients in the UK facing a complaint, disciplinary proceedings, a regulatory problem or a difficult practice issue and by providing advice generally. In other words, we exist to help you solve your practice problems. Our two directors include a chartered accountant and a solicitor, both having considerable experience of dealing with complaints, disciplinary hearings and practice problems.

Practitioners have never been under greater pressure with practice inspection and the Money Laundering Regulations adding yet more worries. The average ICAEW Investigation Committee combined fine and costs is now over £5000 (excluding insolvency cases which incur low costs and no fine), compared to £6500 at the Disciplinary Committee. (ACCA figure is similar).
As we are not a firm of solicitors, we are not regulated by the SRA as a law practice. We are, though, registered with the SRA (606905) and Chris Cope (solicitor) holds a practising certificate.
