About a week ago we received yet another email from the Solictors Regulation Authority, on this occasion regarding a number of important rule changes in connection with personal injury cases.

The letter commenced ‘Dear sirs’. As far as we are aware there are a large number of firms nowadays where women are partners/directors, including our own. We wonder how addressing a firm in this manner squares with the SRA’s espoused policy in relation to equality and diversity?
