About Deloitte Legal

Experience the future of law, today

The way in which lawyers advise their clients has remained largely unchanged for decades. But the world is changing – and fast. Technology is transforming the nature of legal work. There is a constant drive for organisations and their in-house legal teams to do ‘more for less’ and clients face the dual complexities of a heightened regulatory environment and an increasingly globalised business landscape.

We believe this requires a new approach to the provision of legal services. An approach where the outcome is a solution, not just advice. Solutions which combine exceptional legal expertise with market-leading technological and consulting capability to meet today’s challenges. That is what we are building at Deloitte Legal.

Deloitte Legal combines market leading lawyers, consultants and technology experts to provide clients with new solutions to legal problems. Whether that be legal advice delivered in a more effective way, assistance in harnessing the considerable benefits created by advancements in legal technology, or advice on how to create a best-in-class in-house legal function, we have the breadth and depth of expertise to advise on the challenges that our clients face on a daily basis.

We are also able to draw on the vast array of expertise that sits within Deloitte as a whole, meaning that we can advise clients seamlessly when legal solutions need to dovetail with other areas of our clients’ business.

Deloitte Legal can deliver this because we draw together accountants, consultants, technologists and strategists to partner with our legal experts in the UK, and about 2,500 legal experts in more than 80 countries worldwide.

Legal notices
Deloitte Legal means the legal practices of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited member firms or their affiliates that provide legal services. For legal, regulatory and other reasons, not all member firms provide legal services.

Deloitte LLP is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to provide certain legal services under SRA number 646135. Services provided by Deloitte LLP under the Deloitte Legal brand may therefore include SRA regulated services (e.g. legal advisory) and non-SRA regulated services (e.g. legal consulting, legal managed services and certain company secretarial and entity management services).

Complaints procedure
We will investigate all concerns or complaints regarding the quality of our services. You can raise the matter with the practising solicitor, lawyer or other person responsible for supervising the service in the first instance. If you would prefer to raise the matter with someone else then please contact our Compliance Officer for Legal Practice, Daniel Lyons.

You may also have the right to raise concerns with the Legal Ombudsman. Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint, and no more than six years from the date of act/omission; or no more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.

You also have certain rights of appeal to the UK courts in relation to fees under the Solicitors Act 1974.

Where you believe that Deloitte LLP or an individual solicitor have not conducted themselves in accordance with the Principles of the Solicitors Regulation Authority you may wish to raise this with them. The applicable professional rules can be accessed at http://www.sra.org.uk/rules.
