In a world where cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly common, Wards Solicitors has taken decisive action to robustly protect its critical information technology systems and the sensitive data held on them.
For the last year, Wards Solicitors has been working towards achieving the government approved Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation to demonstrate it has external audits and the procedures in place to prevent the most common cyber-attacks on its IT network.
The first stage was a self-assessment process followed up by a full external check-up by an independent auditor designed to highlight any vulnerability and establish that all basic protections are in place and running effectively.
Wards Solicitors’ Managing Partner, David Sheridan, says: “I am delighted that we have now been awarded this accreditation and will be seeking to retain this to ensure continued security of our systems.”
Wards Solicitors is open and our teams continue to work on existing cases and take on new business and clients.
From early August, we are pleased to announce that we will slowly be starting to re-open some of our branches to clients, but all appointments must be pre-booked.
Availability for face-to- face meetings in branches will be limited, and remote contact with teams – via phone, email or video call – is preferred wherever possible. Our prime concern remains the safety of our clients and our staff.
Please note that all visitors to our offices must, by law, wear a face covering.
We cannot accept drop-in appointments.

We look forward to hearing from you. A list of our 11 branches is available here.
