However large your practice, and whatever your field of expertise, our dedicated Legal Team will help you achieve your potential and develop new opportunities. From sole practitioners to major partnerships, Limited Companies and LLPs, our unrivalled sector knowledge allows us to add real value. 

Our specialist team of 26 has extensive experience in all aspects of accounting, taxation and business advice to the legal profession. We go far beyond the conventional compliance-based services offered by many accountancy firms.

We are currently retained by 120 practices and more than 650 individual solicitors across the UK. 

We work with legal practices all day, every day.

Our affiliations and experience

We take care to closely monitor developments in the legal profession. We maintain strong links with local law societies and key providers to law firms, and subscribe to all the leading journals.

We are active members of the Law Society’s Law Management Section, and in 2009 were appointed to produce their Financial Benchmarking Survey. We also sit on the committee of the Solicitors' Special Interest Group of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and the Executive Council of the Institute of Legal Finance and Management. 

We hold regular seminars on topical issues, and are CPD registered with the Law Society. We write articles on a variety of subjects for the legal press.

Whenever you seek our advice, you can be sure that it will always be expert, relevant and up to date.
