Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help with this matter.
Can you explain the situation to me in a bit more detail. I don't quite understand what you mean. Have you been threatened? If so in what way? Thank you.
Ignore the phone call request it is automatically generated.
Ok so do you still have a settlement offer on the table from your work?
Ok well, what I would do is simply go to another lawyer. As this lawyer hasn't actually done anything at the moment and this is just hearsay there isn't much to be done. However, if the work have actually been spying on you (they may just be saying this). If the lawyer does black mail you then you will want to raise a very serious complaint with the SRA (you will find their website easily) in addition to this you can sue your work for breach of privacy. So if they have made you an offer then it is still legally open I would simply just walk away from this situation and go to another lawyer.
I hope this information has helped. You can find a local solicitor who deals with this on the law society webpage which is;
No, it is illegal, highly illegal. And if this happens then make an immediate report to the SRA. This might just be scaremongering but if it happens then go to the SRA and the lawyer could potentially be stuck off.
In what way is he saying you have broken the law?
If you work were to give him you address then they are breaking the law. It just sounds like scaremongering. Dismiss the lawyer, appoint another one and report him to the SRA and you will be fine.
I hope this information has helped.
Yeah, its all a lot of rubbish. Just follow the advice I have given you. The SRA will investigate the claim and they could potentially strike him off for this behaviour.
No, nobody can take you to court. Honestly, I understand your worry but you don't have anything to worry about, you have done nothing wrong and you can't just take someone to court because you want to. Just follow my advice. Hire a new Lawyer and make a complaint to the SRA you will be just fine.
It means he wouldn't be allowed to practice yes. It is just a threat, he can't just go to court and say "you broke the law" things don't work like this. It sounds as though he is just abusing his power. The SRA could also caution him and not strike him off.
Yes. But you would have to be able to prove this.
No he wouldn't or shouldn't contact you. If he does you can call the police or even have non-harrasemnt order placed against him. Google SRA and you will be taken to their website and you will be able to contact them from there.
I would be obliged if you could Click to “accept” the answer and leave me a 5 star rating (this will not cost any extra). This will tell the website that I have responded to your question, you can, of course, continue to ask any follow up questions free of charge.
Before I can offer any additional services I require this answer to be rated as we can only deal with one issue at a time I'm afraid. I could offer a service to review your issues and write a letter but this would require a full review first.
I can offer my email address to do a review of your claim.
If you can rate the answer using the 5 stars at the top of the page (right hand side I believe) then I can offer email service.
Thank you that was very kind of you.
If you can submit me a chronology of events explaining in detail everything that has happened then that would be helpful.
