NB. Whilst I still maintain a practising certificate as a solicitor for England and Wales I only accept instructions as an Isle of Man Advocate and member of the Manx Bar unless I have specifically agreed to act as an English Solicitor in writing and the case demands that I act in that capacity. Without my written agreement in my terms of engagement letter signed by both me and the client I will not be deemed to be acting as an English solicitor just by virtue of the fact that I advise on English law, or in relation to an English case or matter. FURTHER we have specifically agreed that in respect of all matters where I am acting as a Manx Advocate and have not agreed in writing that I am acting as an English Solicitor we will submit all disputes or complaints about how I have performed my professional duties toward you to the Isle of Man Law Society and the Advocates Disciplinary Tribunal and not to the SRA or Legal Ombudsman.
