We were delighted to host the LinC’s quarterly meeting on Thursday 21st September 2017 with Peter Spencer, in the firm’s Church and Charities Department, providing a talk on the European Commission’s Draft Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).
The meeting was attended by in-house representatives from over 30 charities, with a drinks reception afterwards.

Anthony Seymour, a Solicitor in our property department, took part in the 11th annual 10km sponsored London Legal Walk as part of the City of Westminster and Holborn Law Society Team on the 16th May 2016 to raise funds for free legal advice centres around London.

Over 10,000 walkers participated in the event this year walking after work around Central London. He raised £135.

Congratulation Anthony!

Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (“CQS”) accreditation

CQS establishes a universally recognised high quality standard for practices that operate residential conveyancing, and membership with CQS demonstrates that our Property Department meets the highest standards of technical expertise and client service in residential conveyancing transactions.

For anybody looking to buy a house, being quite often the most expensive purchase of anyone’s lifetime, it is essential that they can rely on the high quality service of a CQS-accredited practice, such as Pothecary Witham Weld.
