The management company work on behalf of the landlord. You have certain rights in respect of the level of service you can expect from them - their responsibilties will be outlined on your lease (eg. to maintain common parts, to repair common conduits etc). Any solicitors acting on behalf of the managment company would be acting for them, not for you.
The only solicitors that act for you are those which you privately instruct yourself.
If you are in dispute with the management company then you will either have to act in that yourself or instruct a solicitor directly on your behalf.

Look at your lease for these clauses. If it is your opinion that they have breached these clauses then you can dispute on the basis of a breach of contract.
