BUSINESS CONTINUITY

Rothera Sharp takes seriously the need to have preparations in place to minimize disruption to client services in the event of a business continuity event such as a system’s failure or being able to access an office. Accordingly we have a Business Continuity Plan which is subject to regular review and testing.

We are committed to the needs of vulnerable clients. To find out more please see the Easy Read Guide How to Use a Solicitor in England and Wales from The Law Society.


EQUALITY AND INCLUSIVITY

Rothera Sharp is very mindful of all of its obligations relating to Equality and Inclusivity and has an ethos running throughout the firm which encompasses all aspects of this concept. This not only covers its responsibility to staff (and those who apply for positions with us) but also to clients and non-clients alike.

We have policies in place which underline this commitment but, in any event, we are satisfied that all of our people appreciate their responsibility to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner.

We regularly undertake internal surveys amongst our staff regarding their characteristics and the results of the latest survey are available here.

The partner responsible for Equality and Inclusivity within the firm is Karen Hayward who can be contacted by telephone on 0115 916 5204 or by email at k.hayward@rotherasharp.co.uk.
