Beyond Compliance Limited does not carry out reserved legal activity and therefore does not need to be and is not authorised or regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority or any other legal services regulator. This applies to all of the services we offer as a company.
Our Managing Director, Michaela Hardwick, is a solicitor who is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. As clients of the firm, you benefit from the fact that Michaela conducts herself in accordance with professional obligations set out in the SRA Standards and Regulations which can be found here: SRA Standards and Regulations
This does not mean that the company or the work it carries out is regulated as set out above.
As a result of this and because we do not hold client money, clients of Beyond Compliance do not benefit from access to the SRA Compensation Fund (which is a discretionary fund operated by the SRA to which all solicitors contribute. Its purpose is to make grants to people whose money has been stolen, misappropriated, or otherwise not properly accounted for; or those who have suffered a loss for which a regulated person should have been insured, but was not.)
Clients do not benefit from the SRA’s minimum terms and conditions for professional indemnity insurance. However, as a company, we do hold professional indemnity insurance with Hiscox Insurance with an indemnity limit of £2million.
