Our duty as a legal services regulator is to set standards for our regulated community and ensure that they are upheld in order to protect the public, reputation of the profession and the Regulatory Objectives in Section 1 of the Legal Services Act 2007  

All CILEX individuals and firms regulated by CILEx Regulation, including CILEX members, CILEx Practitioners, CILEx Authorised Entities (regulated firms)  and  the officers, owners, managers and employees in our regulated firms, are required to comply with the CILEx Code of Conduct which sets out the minimum standards of behaviour we expect from our regulated community.

CILEX-ACCA Probate Entities are also regulated by us and are required to comply the CILEX-ACCA Code of Conduct in the CILEX Regulation ACCA handbook.

A failure to comply with the Code(s) may lead to a regulatory investigation and disciplinary action being taken.  

The Enforcement Team review and investigate prior conduct and information received from third parties which may amount to misconduct.
