Leaders in our field

After being recognised by the Legal 500* as Number 1 for Health and Safety in Yorkshire & the Humber from 2004 - 2008, our Principal Solicitor formed SVArmstrong in 2009 as a niche regulatory law firm.

Ever since we have acted for clients involved in the most serious incidents, and for those planning to avoid them. We help clients with corporate governance support, strategies, executive level advice and provide independent external scrutiny. We help to avoid the traps and pitfalls that non-specialists miss.

With "an excellent understanding of complex systems" and a strong reputation for our advocacy skills, we can put together multi-disciplinary teams to deal with difficult issues. Our other staff, the consultants and barristers we use, and any other members of the teams we work with are also normally recognised as being leaders in their field/s.
