You can find out more about the reserved legal activities on the website of the Commission des services juridiques. These are legal services that only regulated lawyers are allowed to provide. That`s because they involve handling your money or representing you in court. The law firms we regulate can carry out these reserved legal activities: Judith Dorkins, Partner and Head of Consumer Services (pictured), said: “Consumers lack easy and reassuring access to legal advice and services. The consumer rights market is fragmented and without a prominent legal brand, so it remains open to new entrants due to the Legal Services Act. Access Legal provides legal services to the firm`s consumer clients in the areas of transfer, employment, litigation, medical negligence, conduct, personal injury and wills. The company has launched a new website for its consumer business, which accounts for 20% of its sales – www.accesslegalsolicitors.co.uk. It will also operate a hotline that its private customers can call until 8 p.m., seven days a week. We regulate this law firm and it must follow our rules. It is permitted to provide all legal services. Dorkins said that as lawyers have specialized in recent years, clients no longer see them as there to help them with all their legal matters throughout their lives.
