“I received a letter from the SRA, criticising reports I had made to the SRA together with challenging the quality of the work undertaken.
The letter concluded that “In view of the circumstances of the present case, the SRA will consider whether notice of disqualification should be given to you in respect of the Reports which you signed”.
After considering the seriousness of the matter I consulted with and engaged Jon to assist in dealing with my “defence”. Jon immediately grasped the implications and after preparing for him a narrative background, providing further clarification he was able to prepare a suitable response for my consideration. Approved, the response was submitted and within 5 days the SRA advised “In view of the circumstances, I will not be making a referral for a decision to be made in accordance with Rule 12.6(b) of the SRA Accounts Rules 2019. I can confirm that this matter is now closed.”
My sincere thanks to Jon, and relief at the outcome.”
