  • Can I rely on an undertaking from a legal executive employed in a non-SRA regulated entity?

There is no specific reference in the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) Code of Conduct to undertakings. However, the institute’s practice advice states that legal executives can give undertakings on behalf of the firm, as can any other member of staff who is authorised to do so by the firm.

The validity of a legal executive can be verified by using the CILEx directory. The Institute can also be contacted directly by telephone (01234 845777) to confirm the up-to-date current status and disciplinary record of a legal executive.
