Let me see if I can help and please rate 5 stars. You are limited with respect to what you can do when it is the other party's solicitor; although you can still write to them (I would write to the senior partner or complaints partner) and threaten a complaint to the SRA. It is a grey area within the solicitors code of conduct as to whether they must respond or steal with things quickly - but I would write in that fashion; threatening such a complaint. Happy to discuss and please rate 5 stars
You may also wish to advise them that 'Outcome O(11.1) of the SRA Code of Conduct' requires that you treat third parties fairly. That you are not being treated fairly in the way that they are acting and that this is a potential breach of their Code of Conduct.
