The Partnership announced as ABS

The Partnership, has been approved as the 16th Alternative Business Structure (ABS) of the Council of Licensed Conveyancers (CLC).

The firm of Wey Court, Guildford has been recognised for its capabilities as a proven and reputable provider of legal services.

Peter Ambrose, Director of The Partnership, said: “We created this business to offer a truly client-centric approach to conveyancing.

“Our assumption that most companies entering the new ABS world would exploit this unique opportunity by focussing purely on low prices, has depressingly been proved right.

“Indeed, this was contrary to our research that showed that for consumers, the most critical factor was expertise and efficiency, and they wanted to get advice from an educated, intelligent and most importantly, friendly, solicitor.

“Our phenomenal growth over the past 18 months has clearly validated our approach and this grant of the ABS licence goes on to prove this.”

Mr Ambrose said the firm were delighted to be one of the first true ABS’s. He said that the firms embrace of technology would be the key to its success.

He concluded: “We obviously had a choice of regulators for our licence. However, it quickly became clear that my business was more closely aligned with the pragmatic and friendly approach of the CLC and we’re delighted to be working with them.”
