Leaders in our field

Having previously been recognised by the Legal 500* as Number 1 for health and safety in Yorkshire & the Humber from 2004 - 2008 (and equal first in the North West in 2008), in 2009 our Principal Solicitor formed SVArmstrong to advise as a niche law practise.

We assist companies, other organizations, boards, directors, senior managers, and in-house lawyers with our specialist expertise. We can test our client's procedures and audit their systems - to provide the highest level of scrutiny, even where no audit committee exists. We help our clients to avoid the pitfalls that non-specialists miss.

Stuart Armstrong has been described by clients as having "an excellent understanding of complex systems" and by legal directories as having "a strong reputation for his advocacy skills". Our other staff and the consultants and barristers we work with are also normally recognised as being leaders in their field/s.



*The Legal 500 was the first directory of law firms to have a specialist category for Health & Safety.
