Hi, I have found a ***** ***** Consultancy Limited- the director is called Mr Peter Andrewez - does that ring any bells? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. ***** ***** Consultancy was dissolved last year, but the address doesn't quite match. What sort of services did they provide to you?
Hi, Thank you. The problem I have is I cannot find an exact to this company. However if they were providing some form of regulated service (which it sounds like they were) you have the following options:
- Contact the Solicitors Regulation Authority - the company stored wills it may be regulated in which case there may have been an intervention from the SRA and the documents could be held by another entity - https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/problems/solicitor-closed-down/intervention.page
- If the company has been dissolved or gone into liquidation it is possible the Insolvency Service has taken control of its assets and documents https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/insolvency-service
- Finally it may be worth inquiring with the Financial Conduct Authority if the advice provided was financial in nature - again they may have intervened in matters.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards AJ
