Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear you have moved Solicitor and want to transfer the file?
Was this on a no win no fee?
Ok. Well the new Solicitors should take on the case if they give an undertaking they will pay his charges if you win,
If he refuses then you can complain to the Legal Ombudsman
They offer a free, independent service and can examine your complaint at:
But generally if your new Solicitor gives an undertaking the files should be released. As a matter of law the files remain the property of the Solicitor until they are paid, which is why your new Solicitor would need to give an undertaking.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
In reality any other Solicitor is going to want to see what correspondence has taken place.
Good luck and I wish you all the best. Remember go to the Ombudsman
Does that clarify?
