Joao Curro,

Dear Ms [name removed]

 

Freedom of Information Request – Our Ref: FOI/BS/1311

 

Thank you for your email today to the Solicitors Regulation Authority
(“SRA”) requesting information. I am treating this as an information
request under the Law Society Freedom of Information Code of Practice
("the Code").

 

You have requested access to the following information:

 

 

“Please can I request details of any and all complaints against Nelson's
Legal of Bell House Tenterden Kent, whether upheld or not.”

 

 

The SRA is a part of the Law Society but acts independently in carrying
out its regulatory functions. The Law Society is not covered by the
Freedom of Information Act (the FOIA) as it is not a designated authority,
but has adopted its own voluntary Code of Practice which closely reflects
the FOIA. The Code may be found at:

[1]http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/Get-in-touc...

 

The Code applies to all information held by the Society, including the
SRA, and the Information Compliance Team deals with all requests received
under the Code. We will not share information relating to your request
across the Law Society Group.

 

I am currently dealing with your request. Bob Stanley, Information
Compliance Manager, will aim to respond formally by 20 November 2014 which
is 20 working days from the receipt of your request.

 

Your sincerely

 

Joao Curro

Joao Curro,

Dear Ms [name removed]

 

Freedom of Information Request – Our Ref: FOI/BS/1311

 

Further to my colleague Joao Curro’s email of 23 September 2014, please
find below the response to your information request under the Law
Society’s Freedom of Information Code of Practice ("the Code").

 

You have requested access to the following information:

 

 

“Please can I request details of any and all complaints against Nelson's
Legal of Bell House Tenterden Kent, whether upheld or not.”

 

 

I am withholding any complaints information about Mr Nelson under Section
16 of the Code. This section of the Code states that we cannot disclose
personal information about someone else. To do so would be a breach of the
Data Protection Act 1998.

 

According to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (‘SRA’) system, the firms
with “Nelson” in the title at the address you mention above are; NELSONS
PROPERTY LAWYERS 522802 and NELSONS 486743. Both were trading names for
NELSONS 74957 which closed on 29 December 2013.

 

NELSONS was a sole practitioner's office for Mr Justin Philip Huntly
Nelson 116040.

 

I can confirm that Mr Justin Philip Huntly Nelson holds a current
practising certificate free from conditions. There are no Findings and
Orders that have been made by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT)
against Mr Justin Philip Huntly Nelson.

 

 

I hope this information is of use.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Bob Stanley
