We have been running our Forensic Department for some 10 years now.
At the outset I would take appointments quite far afield. I recall attending Court in Coventry which meant a very early start one morning. Croydon and Twickenham were two other judicial outlets visited by me in these early years.
Since then we have built up our business locally with regular enquiries and appointments with solicitors in London, Essex and Suffolk. Nevertheless we are still securing appointments and taking enquiries from other parts of the Country. This is particularly the case where the issue has an agricultural flavour, because of our experience in this specialist sector. Thus I have been asked to handle a farming partnership dispute in Gloucestershire. A cattle dispute was transferred to a colleague in the UK200 Group with greater livestock experience.
Recently I found myself in conversation with a solicitor in Edinburgh dealing with a loss of earnings case relating to a farmer in the Borders.
A few years ago I acted for a client who was based in Bahrain. I used to project the strap line “From Rayne to Bahrain”. When it comes to forensic cases, the geographical spread may be more limited, but we are delighted to receive enquiries from anywhere in this green and pleasant land.
