About Us


A Specialist Legal Team 


Although Hartlaw LLP became an LLP only recently the firm has been in Wetherby in one form or another since 1932 and we are very proud of our heritage.  We select people to join our team on the basis of their knowledge, experience and approach to their work. 
 
All our lawyers are specialists in their respective legal fields, and work closely together with other departments within the firm as required to draw on that expert knowledge and provide you with exactly the legal advice and support you need. 
 
For businesses, this often sees the commercial property, employment and dispute resolution teams working together – often with members of our private client department – to provide a holistic, personal service that is tailored specifically to your needs. 
 
For individuals, it may involve members of our property or tax planning teams working together with your family lawyer to advise you on the financial issues surrounding a relationship breakdown. 
 
Whatever your circumstances, you will receive the best advice from a highly qualified and personable team of lawyers. 

What you can expect as a Hartlaw client

At our initial consultation with each prospective client, a lawyer will discuss your circumstances and requirements, outline how and where we can help and advise you of the likely cost involved.
 
As a Hartlaw client, there will be a partner responsible for your work at all times, with the backing of a dedicated support team. Your specialist lawyer will if necessary draw on expertise from elsewhere in the firm to give you necessary advice in other areas of law, should you need it, and will keep you informed of costs at every stage of your case.  

Cybercrime Alert: Bank Details:
Please be aware that there is a significant risk posed by cyber fraud, specifically affecting emails enclosing bank account details. If you receive an email from Hartlaw requesting or providing bank details please speak to your lawyer immediately to clarify. PLEASE NOTE that our bank account details WILL NOT change during the course of a transaction, and we WILL NOT change our bank details via email. We will not accept responsibility if you transfer money into an incorrect account.
