Devonshires is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority under registration number 0049857. All of our qualified lawyers are subject to rules and principles of professional conduct.
The firm is authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 to undertake exempt regulated activities without being authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority, provided that we comply with rules made by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Such rules specify the regulated activities which the firm may and may not undertake. We do not carry on mainstream financial services activities, which would require us to be regulated by the FSA. We are permitted to perform limited regulated financial activities in addition to our normal professional services, in the form of insurance mediation activities. This is broadly advising on, selling and the administration of insurance contracts. We may only conduct such activities where they are complementary and incidental to the provision of a particular professional service to a particular client.
