Beswicks Solicitors LLP is authorised and regulated by The Solicitors Regulation Authority
You can find the authority’s rules on their website.
All law firms regulated by the SRA are required to collect, report and in certain circumstances having regard to Data Protection, publish workforce diversity data about the diversity make-up of their workforce.
Given our size, we do not currently publish such data. However, we do use the information collected to inform our business and recruitment plans since it makes good business sense for us to access all the talent available in the marketplace and a diverse firm is well equipped to access and serve a diverse community. Further information is available on request from Sarah Phillips by email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Criminal Finances Act 2017 – Statement of Compliance
As a firm, we value our reputation for ethical behaviour and for financial probity and reliability. We recognise that over and above the commission of any crime, any involvement in the facilitation of tax evasion will also reflect adversely on our image and reputation.
We do not tolerate tax evasion, or the facilitation thereof in any circumstances, whether committed by or facilitated by a client, personnel or associated persons/companies.
We are committed to fighting tax evasion and have rigorous policies and procedures in place to detect and prevent the facilitation of tax evasion offences.
We provide regular training on the requirements of the Criminal Finances Act 2017 to all personnel.
We require all personnel to demonstrate the highest standards of honesty at all times and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken wherever tax evasion or the facilitation thereof by any personnel has been proven.
We undertake due diligence on all associated persons/companies to mitigate the risk of facilitation of tax evasion offences and, as part of our due diligence procedures, all agreements with third parties contain suitable provisions to enable termination of such agreements where associated persons/companies are not complying with the provisions of the Criminal Finances Act 2017.
