Kingsley Napley Spotlight Series -
Insights into Legal Services Regulation in 2021:
The impact of Beckwith v SRA


2 February 2021


2 February 2021




Specialist Area:


The decision of the Divisional Court at the end of last year in Beckwith v SRA created shock waves in legal services regulation. That decision caused some to call into question the SRA’s approach in bringing disciplinary proceedings against solicitors where sexual misconduct was alleged. In addition, it raised issues around the proper scope of disciplinary action when not directly related to the work of a solicitor. The case is of particular importance to those within law firms who deal with SRA regulation and compliance.

Our Regulatory and Professional Discipline team has brought together an expert panel to discuss the issues that arise.

The panel of experts, chaired by Julie Norris,  Partner at Kingsley Napley, include:

  • Juliet Oliver, General Counsel of the SRA;
  • Professor Richard Moorhead, one of the UK’s foremost experts on legal ethics;
  • Iain Miller, Partner at Kingsley Napley and General Editor of Cordery on Legal Services.
