Solicitors Regulation Authority
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is the regulatory body for solicitors in England and Wales, including Croftons. Its purpose is “to set, promote and secure in the public interest standards of behaviour and professional performance necessary to ensure that clients receive a good service and that the rule of law is upheld”. In addition, the SRA operates accreditation schemes in order to;
- promote high standards in legal service provision
- ensure that consumers are easily able to identify legal practitioners with proven competency in given areas of law
- help consumers make informed choices
- provide information for the courts, statutory bodies and other professionals
- ensure that scheme members maintain relevant standards of competency and expertise, by means of periodic reselection, re-accreditation and re-authorisation.
Solicitors who are members of the Personal Injury Accreditation scheme have been thoroughly tested and certified against SRA standards. Their expertise has been verified, and their accomplishment recognised by the SRA. For more information visit the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s website.
