Warning: “Jenkins Law Solicitors” and the website "www․jenkinslawllp․com”

The website “www.jenkinslawllp.com" is operating, which falsely claims to be for a law firm called “Jenkins Law Solicitors”.

What is the scam?

The SRA has been informed that the website "www.jenkinslawllp.com" is operating.

The website claims to be for a law firm called "Jenkins Law Solicitors" based in London.

The website gives the address Angel Gate, 326 City Road, Islington, London, EC1V 2PT, England, an email address of "info@jenkinslawllp.com" and contact numbers of +44 7440 941 094 (Phone) and +44 2030 041 537 (Fax).

The website refers to “Richard Jenkins” as the “Managing Partner” and gives the names of Rachel Cauley, Gary Ferdinand and Theresa Carrington as individuals who work there. The SRA does not authorise or regulate any solicitors by the names of Rachel Cauley, Gary Ferdinand and Theresa Carrington.

The website falsely claims the firm is authorised and regulated as Jenkins Law Limited under SRA number “658698”. The SRA does not regulate a firm of solicitors (or an individual solicitor) with that SRA number.

The SRA does not authorise or regulate a firm of solicitors called "Jenkins Law Solicitors" (or Jenkins Law Limited)

Any business or transactions through the website, email address or contact numbers above are not undertaken by a solicitor's firm authorised and regulated by the SRA.

Update – 27 June 2018

Warning: Correspondence from “Jenkins Law LLP”.

The SRA has received a report of a member of the public receiving correspondence from “Jenkins Law LLP”, falsely claiming to be a firm of solicitors.  

The correspondence recently seen by the SRA is in German, but appears to relate to a supposed inheritance. The letter provides the same address and contact information as the website referred to above but uses the name “Jenkins Law LLP”. The letter also provides a different email address of “jenkins_richard@outlook.com”.

The SRA does not authorise or regulate a firm of solicitors called “Jenkins Law LLP”. 

Any business or transactions through “Jenkins Law LLP” or the email address jenkins_richard@outlook.com are not undertaken by a solicitor's practice or an individual authorised and regulated by the SRA.

Is there a genuine firm or person?

The SRA has previously authorised and regulated a genuine firm of solicitors called Jenkins Law, but that firm ceased trading on 30 September 2010.

The SRA does regulate a non-practising solicitor called Richard Jenkins, and one practising solicitor called Richard Henry Nicholas Jenkins (who actually practises using the name Nick Jenkins). Neither are believed to have any connection to the website referred to above.

What should I do?

When a firm's or individual's identity has been copied exactly (or cloned), due diligence is necessary. If you receive correspondence claiming to be from the above firm(s) or individual(s), or information of a similar nature to that described, you should conduct your own due diligence by checking the authenticity of the correspondence by contacting the law firm directly by reliable and established means. You can contact the SRA to find out if individuals or firms are regulated and authorised by the SRA and verify an individual's or firm's practising details. Other verification methods, such as checking public records (e.g. telephone directories and company records) may be required in other circumstances.
