Russell-Cooke is an Investor In People accredited firm

The Investors in People Standard is a business improvement tool designed to advance an organisation's performance through its people. Developed in 1990 by a partnership of leading businesses and national organisations, the Standard helps organisations to improve performance and realise objectives through the management and development of their people. Since it was developed, the Standard has been reviewed every three years to ensure that it remains relevant, accessible and attractive to all. The most recent review was completed in November 2010. Over 30,000 UK organisations are recognised as Investors in People, covering a wide spectrum of UK industries. Initially the Standard was administered through a section in the Department for Education and Employment (DfEE). As demand for, and interest in, the Standard grew the section became Investors in People UK.

Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) will provide a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Achievement of membership will establish a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers).


Our charges are usually based on a fixed fee basis plus any extra administrative charges and disbursements (costs made to others on your behalf).

This fixed fee will be quoted to you at the outset and means there will be no hourly fees or hidden rates.

The fixed fee quoted to you will be based on our assessment of the size, type and complexity of the work involved and will be agreed with you at the outset. 

Once the quote is provided to you in writing, the price will not change.

There are very few instances where the scope of work proves to be greater than what was initially discussed/quoted, should this happen an estimate of any further charges will be discussed with you at the earliest opportunity prior to the work being carried out.
