The SRA's Disciplinary Powers

Referrals and Appeals to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal

The SRA has power to do any of the following:

  • Give a solicitor written rebuke
  • Direct a solicitor to pay a penalty
  • Publish details of a written rebuke or a direction to pay a penalty
  • Impose a disqualification from acting as a HOLP or HOFA or being a manager or employee
  • Make an application to the Tribunal.

A number of preconditions must be met before the SRA can make a disciplinary decision to give a rebuke or to direct the payment of a penalty. They are set out in the SRA Disciplinary Procedure Rules 2011 (LINK).

  • Advising you in connection with an appeal either to the SRA or to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.
