In certain circumstances breaches of our rules or misconduct will lead to a formal investigation. This is in order to maintain public confidence in the provision of legal services.
Any investigation may involve our Enforcement Teams, who will consider the appropriate action to take. This may occur when the matter involves a higher level of risk, e.g. if there is the possibility of serious, multiple or prolonged breaches of the CILEx Accounts Rules, especially if this impacts on client money.
