Covid-19: UPDATED – Bank transfers rather than sending cheques

Could solicitors please electronically transfer any principal sums, expenses settlements or overpayments of accounts instead of sending cheques during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Our offices are now closed and there will be a delay in picking up cheques sent in the mail.

Making a bank transfer will help reduce the handling of paper and avoid any issues with the post.

Note: When making the transfer,  could you please include either the Legal Aid Reference Number (LARN) or the applicant’s full name.

We have listed our bank details below. Please make sure you select the relevant one for the type of transfer you’re making.

Your help with this is much appreciated.
