Solicitors Assistance Scheme (posted: Thu 30 Sep, 2010)


The Scheme was established nearly 40 years ago. Its aims are to serve the profession by providing solicitors and their staff with independent and confidential advice and assistance regarding professional, business or personal problems.

The SAS is independent of the Law Society and the SRA. There are currently about 80 members nationwide.

Members agree to give up to one hour’s free advice. This is usually done by telephone. Beyond that, further work may be carried out on a fee paying basis in the usual way.

The Scheme is particularly short of members in the North East. There is currently only one member in this region and he is to stand down at the end of 2010.

Members notify the SAS of the areas of practice on which they advise. The Scheme is particularly looking for new members to deal with issues relating to Employment, Partnership, Insolvency, Insurance, Crime and Complaints.

If anyone would like to know more please look at the website or contact the Scheme Administrator Duncan Finlyson, Manor Barn, Acton Beauchamp, Worcestershire, WR6 5AF, telephone 0207 117 8811 email: Alternatively, please contact the existing local member who is standing down. He is Colin Vaux, Punch Robson, Middlesbrough, telephone 01642 233905 email

Anyone who would like to apply to become a new member of the Scheme should please contact Duncan Finlyson.
