Davenport Lyons rapped for 'bullying' letters
West End firm Davenport Lyons has come under fire from consumer organisation Which? with the body accusing the firm of sending 'bullying' letters to hundreds of consumers. Which? has complained to the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) about the firm, which has been contacting internet users it believes have been illegally sharing copies of video games. The alleged file-sharers receive a letter - on behalf of Davenport Lyons' clients - asking for compensation of around £500 to settle the claim of copyright infringement.
