Solicitors' business records

Thursday, 10 February 2011

The Law Society has produced very useful guidance entitled depositing records and documents with public sector archives.

It is aimed at solicitors, office managers or personnel responsible for case files or storage of solicitors' files and records and hopes to:

reverse the trend of the destruction or sale of these historically significant legal documents and solicitors are encouraged to consider alternative options for their redundant items. This practice note provides advice on depositing old client documents or early records about your firm with the appropriate local authority record office.

This is a really useful resource from the Law Society. Thanks for bringing it to our attention - we'll definitely be using it when we approach local solicitors about their archvies!
