I have sent a letter before claim to a person who has infringed

This answer was rated:

I have sent a letter before claim to a person who has infringed my copyright. The infringer has been using a solicitor to argue the case.

I have now informed the solicitor that I am issuing court papers and the solicitor informs me that he does not have instructions to accept the papers on his clients behalf.

Does this mean that I am allowed to send the court claim form directly to the infringer?
