In recent years, Stanley Hays has been a partnership with Robert Dawson and Richard Walker as the partners. Robert has recently retired from the partnership after more than 30 years as a solicitor with Stanley Hays but he will remain available to assist Richard in the practice on an occasional basis.
The partnership had been authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (the SRA) under number 50954. Richard Walker will continue working at Stanley Hays and has been authorised by the SRA to continue Stanley Hays as a sole principal under number 648184.
This change takes effect on 1 July 2018. There will be no obvious difference as a result of this change. Our office details, bank accounts and professional insurance all remain the same.
Title deeds and wills held in safe storage continue to be held at our offices. Any such documents belong to the client and it has always been the case that the documents can be collected from our office. The change to our SRA authorisation means that we have to remind clients that you can collect your documents, by prior arrangement, should you wish to do so and then store them at home or with your bank or another solicitor. We do not charge for storage but banks and other solicitors may do.
We thank our much valued clients for trusting Stanley Hays with your legal work in the past and we will provide the same efficient and approachable service in the future.
