SRA Transparency Rules: Probate Process & Charges

What are the SRA Transparency Rules?
The SRA Transparency Rules set out the information that SRA authorised firms should make available to clients and potential clients and form part of the Better Information, more choice: Post consultation rules. The rules aim to ensure people have accurate and relevant information about a solicitor or firm when they are considering purchasing legal services and will help members of the public and small businesses make informed choices, improving competition in the legal market.

What We Do Best

Else Solicitors specialise in providing families with considered, practical, and sensitive advice.

Our private client services team, headed by Kathryn Caple, focus on supplying guidance on financial and family matters to individuals that want to prepare for the future and protect their loved-ones in their Will.
