In May 1988, Roger Terrell established the firm and operated initially from premises in Park Road, Peterborough. In 1995, following steady growth the firm acquired the long established firm of Jeffreys Orrell & Co and moved to their current premises at 61 Lincoln Road, Peterborough. The firm has always focussed upon achieving the best outcome for our clients, hence our mission statement:-
“The provision of a quality legal service to all our clients by a professionally trained and committed team”.
To deliver the required quality service, we have had a long history of working to the strict requirements of nationally recognised quality standards. We have held the Legal Aid Agency’s Specialist Quality Mark since 1994, Investors in People recognition since December 1999 and Lexcel Certification since January 2001. We were the first firm in Peterborough to attain this prestigious accreditation awarded by the Law Society after rigorous audits and investigations by an outside assessor.
We have become a niche practice with specialist Solicitors dealing with all matters relating to Family Law, Civil Litigation, Commercial/Business matters, Conveyancing, Wills and Probate. Our commitment to the development of our staff is a fundamental aspect of our business plan. Our Lexcel assessor commented, “The firm has quite a remarkable track record of internal promotion and development for both Fee Earners and support staff alike”.
As a result of our commitment to our clients, we receive 80% of our business from existing clients and recommendations from existing clients.
