Clear legal advice to support business and individuals

LATEST INSIGHTS

During this unprecedented time we have put together a bespoke legal team to provide our clients with solutions to the key issues arising.

Every client an advocate.
That's the Wright Hassall way.

The law might be the same across the UK, but do your lawyers have to be?

At Wright Hassall we dare to be different.  Our clients tell us that, as well as being exceptional lawyers, we are proactive, diligent, commercial, provide value for money and, above all, we have great people who are fun to work with.

We pride ourselves on the satisfaction levels of our clients.  We have a defined way of working across the firm, “The Wright Hassall way”, which sets the service levels to which we aspire.  At the end of every matter, we will ask you whether we have met these standards and, if not, we will work with you to ensure that any short-comings are addressed immediately.  We do not stand still, we aim to continually improve in everything we do.

People we help

The financial adviser group that they had been working for (Affinity) said that they were bound by restrictive covenants that prevented them from contacting or dealing with clients for 12 months. In effect this cut them off from, and they were unable to service and advise, their clients.
