About Us

Coronavirus update:
Please be advised in accordance with Government guidelines we have taken the difficult yet important decision to prioritise our staff and clients’ health and wellbeing in light of the Coronavirus. As such we have made temporary changes to our working patterns. Please be assured so far as is possible we are still operating ‘business as usual’ although to protect everyone, we are now largely working from home and conducting meetings remotely/electronically. In order to minimise any potential risk to our staff and our valued clients, our main office will not be open to the public and we would appreciate where possible, any correspondence to be sent via email to your case manager directly or to our central address which is info@hartlaw.co.uk
Please avoid sending any payments by cheque and instead send all payments directly to us via bank transfer or make payments over the telephone to 01937 547004.
Please note any emails and/or telephone calls to your case manager will still be accessed as normal and your case will be progressed.  We are sure that you understand in the current circumstances, your case may be passed on to an alternative fee earner.
Please also note than any email communication during this time will automatically be copied to one of our partners as well as your case manager. 
Our central office telephone number 01937 547000 is still being operated as normal during our business hours of 9am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday.
On behalf of all of the partners and team at Hartlaw LLP, we thank you for your continued support during these difficult times. Please be assured we remain committed to providing the highest quality of service and legal advice to our clients and the local community and we hope that you all stay safe and look after each other.

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.
