You would want a guarantee that all of your communications with us are confidential. We give this guarantee to all of our clients as it is an ethical obligation, but more than this, only solicitors (as distinct from accountants and journalists) can refrain from giving evidence as to their clients in a court of law.
Conflict of interest
The same strictness of the duty of confidentiality applies to the duty of a solicitor not to have a conflict of interest. A court can prevent a solicitor from conducting a matter where the court perceives that the solicitor has a conflict of interest. Because we are a small firm and fully computerised we are able to assure you that any potential conflict of interest is advised to you prior to accepting instructions to act.
