Open Letter About RHL Solicitors

I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to reach out and address some of the recent communications you might have received regarding the administration of Lysander Law and your ongoing claim. I understand that this situation may be causing some unease, and I want to provide clarity and reassurance.

Firstly, I encourage you to verify the information I share here through the administrator’s letter, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), or any other reliable sources. It’s crucial that you feel confident in the facts and make informed decisions.

I must also express my deep concern regarding the letters RHL Solicitors have been circulating. Not only do I find the content of these letters troubling, but I also believe they are written in bad faith and poor taste. It is truly disheartening to see a professional firm resort to such tactics, seemingly in an attempt to pressure clients and undermine their ability to make informed decisions. Let’s address some key points:

  1. Financial Gain: Yes, we are a business, and our services are provided at no additional cost to you. However, your best interests have always been our top priority. It’s important to note that RHL Solicitors also stands to benefit financially, and due to Lysander Law’s actions, we are not gaining financially.

  2. Cancellation Threat and Competency: The suggestion that your claim will be cancelled, delayed, or require a fresh start if you don’t transfer to RHL Solicitors is incorrect. If a solicitor can misinterpret or misrepresent the administrator’s clear communication, it raises questions about their ability to effectively manage your claim.

  3. Your Power and Choice: This is your claim, and you have the right to choose your representation. RHL Solicitors is not your automatic replacement. The administrator’s letter clearly states that you are under no obligation to use RHL Solicitors and can transfer your case to another firm or request your file be returned to you.

 

If you decide to choose a different solicitor, the transition will be smooth, and you won’t lose your place in any queue or have to start from scratch. The SRA and FSCS can confirm this.

When considering your options, I’d like to highlight Mendelsons Solicitors:

  • They have over seven years of experience specialising in this type of work.
  • They have a visible online presence, allowing you to research their team and expertise.
  • They have a proven track record of successfully completing claims similar to yours.

 

In contrast, I couldn’t find a website or prior work experiences for RHL Solicitors. The lack of an online presence and track record raises questions, especially considering the importance of trust in your journey. It does appear in a news article that RHL are personal injury specialists.

If you or someone you know signed up with RHL Solicitors due to the mentioned cancellations or delays, please inform us immediately if you wish to regain your options. This is a serious matter.

Remember, you are in control of your claim, and your choices will lead the way. If you have any questions, concerns, or simply want to talk, we are here for you.

P.S. Please note that the RHL website link given on the SRA register and the administrators letter appears to be “parked” at the time of publishing this letter but I have previously seen it display a “new website coming soon” message. These two solicitors aren’t your only options either, you have the flexibility to shop around!

And here lies the crux of the matter: RHL seems to be upset with us, perhaps because we’re reminding you, our valued clients, about your options. Our transparency and dedication to ensuring you’re fully informed have seemingly ruffled some feathers at RHL.
