A statement from our founder and Director, Tariq Phillips

When I set up TP Legal Solicitors six years ago as a sole practitioner I intended to create a modern law firm which retains the positives of a traditional law firm.

For me the positives of the old school law firm are excellence in the delivery of legal knowledge, practice and results and integrity of staff from office junior to director, whereas the positives of a modern law firm are to embrace changes in legal practice, technology and innovation and excellence in client care and communication.

I am delighted to announce that we have made it possible! We continue to expand in profit costs and turnover. This has enabled us to move this year into larger purpose-designed office space within our existing Woking address.

We continue to provide high street conveyancing services as well as acting for businesses in relation to their commercial premises and commercial matters. In the last year we have carved a niche acting for pubs in relation to their MRO lease renewals, and have established a new department specialising in assisting people purchasing newly built/off plan properties to live in.

We have invested in technology for the benefit of staff and clients and are now able to offer clients the option of signing their contracts electronically to assist in speeding up the conveyancing process. We also continue to offer our online quotes service, enabling prospective clients to obtain a no-obligation quote at any time day or night. Consequently our fees are transparent well in advance of any obligation to disclose which are due to be enforced later this year.

 

How far have we progressed?

 

  • Approximately 75% of TP Legal's work continues to come from existing or former clients recommending our services to their friends and family (industry standard 40%);
  • The majority of our cases are conducted online, and clients received their reports in electronic format;
  • Results driven recommendations have enable the firm to further increase its turnover from its previous year of trade;
  • The firm retains the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme Accreditation;
  • We are on the majority of panels for banks and building societies to enable us to act for more lenders in relation to re-mortgages and mortgage related purchases;
  • The firm continues to grow in headcount and now includes myself, Jayne, Hannah, Jan, Aisling, Sarah, Yasmin, Kiran and Mark;
  • We are authorised by the SRA to take on trainee solicitors and currently boast two trainee solicitors in Sarah and Aisling who are assisting in New Builds and all departments respectively;
  • Oliver, our first trainee solicitor, has now flown the nest and we wish him every success with his career.

 

Thank you to everyone who has supported my business in its infancy and the growth of this amazing solicitors practice.

 

Thank you to our clients, staff, intermediaries, friends and family who continue to assist us in building a solicitors practice. We still need your help.
