Regulation of Investment and Insurance Business

This firm is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 but we are able to offer, in certain circumstances, a limited range of investment services to clients because we are members of the Law Society. We are able to provide these investment services if they are an incidental part of the professional services we have been engaged to provide. Please note, however, that this firm does not generally provide investment services to its clients from its own resources. We do, where necessary, obtain advice from reputable brokers. However, we can take no responsibility for the quality of the advice that they provide.

Although this firm is not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority, we are included on the register maintained by the Financial Conduct Authority so that we can carry on insurance mediation activity, which includes advising on, selling, and administration of insurance contracts. This part of our business, including arrangements for complaints or redress if something goes wrong, is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

If you decide to take advice from any subsidiaries of Chartwell Group Limited then you should be aware that some of the partners in this firm are also shareholders in Chartwell Group Limited. There is no commission sharing or introductory fee arrangement of any kind between this firm and Chartwell Group Limited. Chartwell Fund Management Limited and Chartwell Private Client Limited are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure

We obviously hope that you are happy with our work. If you are not, then of course please raise the problem in the first instance with the partner with overall responsibility for your work or, if you prefer, with our complaints partner Rebecca Silcock rebecca.silcock@mogersdrewett.com. All solicitors must attempt to resolve any problems that may arise with their services, so it is therefore important that you raise any concerns with us immediately. In order to ensure that complaints are dealt with promptly, fairly and effectively, we have in place a complaints procedure. In the unfortunate event that you do wish to make a complaint, you will be informed how the complaint will be handled and given an indication about the time scale for the complaint being dealt with.

If we are unable to resolve your  complaint and it relates to a contract we entered into by electronic means, you may be able to submit your complaint to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provider via the ODR platform http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

Governing Law

Criminal Finances Act 2017 

As a firm, we value our reputation for ethical behaviour and for financial probity and reliability. We recognise that over and above the commission of any crime, any involvement in the facilitation of tax evasion will also reflect adversely on our image and reputation.

We do not tolerate tax evasion, or the facilitation thereof in any circumstances, whether committed by or facilitated by a client, personnel or associated persons/companies.

We are committed to fighting tax evasion and have rigorous policies and procedures in place to detect and prevent the facilitation of tax evasion offences.

We provide regular training on the requirements of the Criminal Finances Act 2017 to all personnel.

We require all personnel to demonstrate the highest standards of honesty at all times and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken wherever tax evasion or the facilitation thereof by any personnel has been proven.

We undertake due diligence on all associated persons/companies to mitigate the risk of facilitation of tax evasion offences and, as part of our due diligence procedures, all agreements with third parties contain suitable provisions to enable termination of such agreements where associated persons/companies are not complying with the provisions of the Criminal Finances Act 2017.
