Legal Information

Peters & Peters Solicitors LLP, ‘the LLP’, is a limited liability partnership registered in England & Wales, under registered number OC352134. Its registered office is at 15 Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1BW. We use the word ‘partner’ to refer to a member of the LLP or an employee or consultant who is a lawyer with equivalent standing and qualifications.

Regulation

The LLP is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) of England and Wales whose rules can be accessed at www.sra.org.uk/rules. The firm’s SRA registration number is 525192 and its VAT registered number is GB 238 5705 46. The Partners are either admitted as Solicitors of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom or Barristers called to the Bar in England and Wales.

Anti-corruption

The LLP is committed to adhering to the highest standards of ethical behaviour in the conduct of our business. We have put in place policies and procedures to ensure that we comply with UK anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws. These policies and procedures apply to all staff of the LLP and cover conduct within the UK or overseas. Peters & Peters expect business partners who work with, or who supply services to the firm, to operate in a manner consistent with our policies and all applicable anti-corruption laws.

Fraudulent communications

In common with many other firms, our name and the names of individual lawyers have been used by criminals as part of a scam or fraud. Communications (usually emails) are sent to victims in the name of the firm or individual lawyers. These scams can take different forms. Most commonly, the communications state that the recipient is entitled to receive money from an inheritance or other source. They are fraudulent and if responded to, will lead to a request for funds to be paid to enable the money to be released.

The communications use our identity but will contain incorrect contact information. If you receive a scam email, do not respond to it. If you are not sure whether a communication you have received is legitimate please contact us at itdepartment@petersandpeters.com.

Please be assured that our email and IT systems are not at risk as a result of these scams.

This firm and our lawyers have no involvement in these scams and do not accept responsibility for any loss that might result from them.
