A MoJ spokeswoman confirms that the firm is under investigation but could not reveal any details regarding the case.
She says: “We can confirm that we are investigating Grass Roots. We are not able to comment further on specific issues under investigation as to do so could jeopardise the outcome of the investigation.”
The MoJ last week suspended the authorisation of claim chasers Cartel Client Review Ltd, who share the same offices as Grass roots.
Similarly, the Solicitors Regulation Association shut down the offices of Richard Burley of Consumer Credit Litigation Solicitors, who provided legal advice for CCR, earlier this month .
Burley’s office was also in the same complex as both Grass Roots and CCR.
