What can we do for you?

You can obtain legal services from many sources, both regulated and unregulated. The latest new kid on the block is the Co-op who think they are different because they will “put the customer at the heart of our plans” and will be “serving the community”.  Apparently they think that “for a solicitor it’s an alien approach”.  We think we have been doing that at least for more than 100 years.

The Co-op’s first point of contact will be YouTube which will point customers towards a call centre and then, if necessary, a solicitor. At Harris & Harris we think you should always speak about your problem or transaction to someone who knows what they are talking about. Here a few good reasons why you can trust us:

Expertise – All our solicitors are specialists. They will only act for you if your work falls within their own particular areas of expertise. If not, but someone else at Harris & Harris has that expertise they will introduce you. If it isn’t work we do we can recommend a specialist, and we do not take a fee for doing that.

Experience – Solicitors working for Harris & Harris have accumulated more than 200 years’ experience between us.  However new your situation may be for you, we’ve probably seen it and solved it before.

Solutions – We have to help achieve your aims, or find the best solution to your problem. That also means being realistic with you about what is achievable, risks and costs.

Independent – We’re independent. We neither owe obligations to, nor are dependent on anybody but you, our clients. Our advice is completely impartial and puts you first.

Trust – People have been coming to us for help for more than a hundred years. Our service to them and our professionalism are our “marketing strategy”. We believe that looking after you is the best way to ensure you come back, and recommend us to others.

Engagement – We will gain understanding of you and your business, not just treat the legal issues as an isolated single transaction. We’re a part of our community, not just of businesses, but as people, churches and community organisations.

Management – We’ve held the Lexcel Quality Mark since 2004 – we were one of the first firms in the area to gain accreditation. We’re a Partnership and we involve our staff in how we are managed so we all understand how to run a business.

Guaranteed – We don’t say this. What we do is backed up by professional regulation and professional indemnity insurance.
