It’s hard to believe but the majority of legal firms that Propero contacts are not compliant with the SRA rules on Transparency. That’s not very reassuring.
We wanted to do something about that. So, to help firms (including those that think they’re compliant) we designed our own SRA Transparency & Pricing Compliance Check & Audit Report. Created specifically to give firms like yours certainty and peace of mind about exactly what needs to be fixed in order to comply.
A very reassuring £500.
Plus, not only does our report highlight the areas where you may be failing in your obligation on Transparency & Pricing but the token fee is refundable against any future work we may undertake.
We know you’re likely to already be taking steps to ensure you comply to avoid negative publicity, fines or sanctions from the SRA – and we’re here to help you with that process.
Propero’s SRA Compliance Check on Transparency & Pricing
To mitigate your risk we have a bespoke audit process where we undertake a thorough check of your website (and published information) to produce a Compliance Audit Report on Transparency & Pricing, highlighting the areas that you should address immediately. The report contains recommendations of the things that need to be fixed, as well as a cost for us to do the work for you to be compliant with the SRA’s Transparency Rules.
Wouldn’t you want that kind of peace of mind?
Your investment in our audit is £500 which you can use as credit against any work we undertake to help make your firm compliant, saving you both time and money.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT PROPERO CAN RUN YOUR COMPLIANCE CHECK AND PRODUCE THE AUDIT REPORT WITHOUT YOUR INVOLVEMENT IN JUST A COUPLE OF DAYS.
Unsure About The Rules?
At some point in your day-to-day dealings you’ll have heard about the Solicitors Regulation Authority Transparency Rules. These obligate firms and freelance solicitors to publish clear, well-situated information on price and teams with regard to specific legal services.
These services include:
MOTORING OFFENCES (SUMMARY OFFENCES).
IMMIGRATION (EXCLUDING ASYLUM).
EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNALS (UNFAIR/WRONGFUL DISMISSAL).
LICENCING APPLICATIONS (BUSINESS PERMISES).
DEBT RECOVERY (UP TO €100,000).
EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNALS (DEFENDING CLAIMS FOR UNFAIR OR WRONGFUL DISMISSAL).
BUSINESS LICENCING APPLICATION (NEW AAPLICATIONS OR VARYING EXISTING LICENCES).
DEBT RECOVERY (UP TO €100,000).
If you provide any of the above services you must comply with the SRA directive on Transparency.
Common reasons why firms are not compliant include:-
- Poor interpretation by a 3rd party of the SRA’s Transparency directive
- Insufficient technical support to make essential website changes
- A belief that partial SRA compliance ‘will do’ so Pricing Transparency isn’t a priority
- Concerns that clearly displayed pricing will affect new client enquiries
