Raising concerns and whistleblowing - guidance for staff

This practice note explains your professional and regulatory obligations to raise concerns about the actions of your practice.

This practice note is relevant to all law firms and sole practitioners authorised by the SRA. It’s also relevant to individual solicitors, RELs and RFLs, wherever they practise.

This practice note is the Law Society’s view of good practice in this area, and is not legal advice. For more information see the legal status.
