Littleton has a long history of advising and litigating in the legal services field, acting for individuals, firms and regulatory bodies in cases concerning solicitors, barristers and professionals. Recent work has included advising on alternative business structures in the legal profession, and amendments to Chambers’ constitutions. Our members have experience in large managed mortgage litigation brought against solicitors, and have advised on SRA investigations.
Barristers in our Professional Discipline group have a specialism in cases involving allegations of professional negligence against solicitors and barristers, among other professionals. Their excellent knowledge of the legal services sector underpins their advice and litigation strategy. Our members understand that a timely approach is often the best route to resolution and provide clear written and oral advice in order to facilitate this. However they remain ready to employ their impressive advocacy skills if a claim proceeds to a disciplinary hearing.
Members of Littleton Chambers regularly act in disciplinary hearings and challenges and some have experience of sitting on panels including the Conduct and Complaints Committee of the Bar Standards Board.
Key cases include:
