The firm is currently situated in a High Street office location which is an attractive Grade 2 listed building in a central location which provides easy accessibility to clients. There is also easy access to our offices via trains and buses and car parking available close by and on the High Street.
The Practice has also made a substantial investment in improving its IT so that much of the work is now carried on through an increasingly paperless office by the use of email and web based accessibility. Remote site working is also a key element in the business plan so that client’s matters can be actively progressed from all locations at any time of the day or night, 365 days of the year.
