Case to Answer Limited is the Group’s unregulated practice, providing dedicated, high calibre legal advice to consumers and our partners across the UK.
Just because we provide unregulated legal services does not mean they are of inferior quality to our regulated legal services. All legal services are provided by our highly qualified and experienced lawyers. Every lawyer we use has either qualified as a Solicitor, a Barrister or an overseas attorney and has gained at least five (5) years’ of practical experience in their area of specialisation.
They simply choose to practice in an unregulated manner as “Lawyers” here at CTA.
One of the companies within our group is a regulated legal practice, practising under the SRA, and where it is necessary for CTA to require regulated support it is readily available.
In our unregulated practice CTA is not regulated by the SRA or the Bar Standards Board (BSB) there are no minimum levels of professional indemnity insurance. Our solicitors and barrister remain individually regulated through the SRA or BSB but are able to offer commercial terms which reduce the overheads and therefore the fee rates applying.
Our model is not right for all prospective clients but is suitable for commercially astute businesses who do not want to engage with a traditional law firm operating on professional indemnity terms and within a regulatory framework which increases the costs.
We will set out our terms and conditions before you instruct us and you can decide if they are right or wrong for you.
The ability to transact business on balanced commercial terms coupled with our low overhead, achieved through a distributed practice model using state of the art technology, means we can deliver high quality legal services at a fraction of the price charged by city and major regional practices, and significantly less than even high street practices.
If you are seeking advice on an unreserved matter, instructing a lawyer through an unregulated practice will certainly lower your fees, and with us, quality will not be affected. That we guarantee.
