We reserve the right to ask further questions of each law firm and we may ask for an anonymised case study to help us in our assessment.
We do not wish to exclude smaller firms who provide an excellent service and it is for this reason that we invite applications from firms which do not quite met the above criteria and these will be considered by the UKABIF legal panel. If you wish to so apply please submit your application outlining which areas you do comply with and why you believe that your firm should be included in the list. The panel will consider your application and may contact you for further details.
If you would like to apply to join the list please contact us on 0845 6080788 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete this form.
