Could you be more specific about the document and why you would not wish them to retain a copy please?
Thanks for your Question.
It's perfectly fine for you to insist that the solicitor does not take a copy of it. Just make it clear to them when you book the consultation and then again at the start of the meeting.
Client files technically belong to the client and the client may withdraw it at any time, although the firm will have a lien on the file (a right to retain) until such time as their fees are settled by the client.
