What are solicitors?
Solicitors are law graduates who have qualified to practice law in England and Wales. For most clients they are the first, and usually last, port of call for legal issues. Occasionally solicitors will brief barristers to appear for clients in court, but for the most part solicitors advise clients on most legal issues. There are more than 100,000 solicitors currently on the roll of solicitors.
How are Solicitors regulated?
The Solicitors Regulatory Authority was established by the Legal Services Act in 2007 to act as the official regulatory body for the U.K. legal profession. The SRA sets qualification standards for solicitors, administers the roll of solicitors, drafts the rules for professional conduct, hear reports of misconduct and penalises solicitors breaching the rules.

One of the basic principles of English law is that the losing party covers the costs of the winning party's legal costs. Because the vast majority of personal injury claims succeed this means that solicitor's costs are not something you would usually need to worry about. read more
