Jenny analyses files recovered from intervened solicitors’ firms to protect the interests of former clients as part of our role acting for the Solicitors Regulation Authority as an intervention agent.
As we also distribute client account money following interventions into solicitors’ practices, Jenny is an expert on the rules which govern the treatment of that money. Jenny has been instructed to deal with many complex client account distributions, where there is a shortfall in the client account or suspicions of dishonesty on the part of the intervened solicitor. She has dealt with several such funds ranging from £16,000 to £2.1 million.
Jenny deals with all aspects of litigation and other forms of dispute resolution from pre-litigation stage up to trial. In addition, she deals with debt recovery disputes. Jenny regularly deals with cases in both the County Courts and the High Court and works on a wide variety of matters, including landlord and tenant and contractual disputes.
Jenny also has expertise in investigating applications to the SRA’s Compensation Fund relating to alleged dishonest involvement in mortgage fraud by solicitors and is an expert in the rules relating to those applications.
Jenny has also recently joined the Regulatory & Compliance team working with Andrew Logan. Jenny assists Andrew in advising a range of clients from PLCs, large family owned businesses, and SMEs as well as a university.
