Document Shredding for Solicitors

We offer a document shredding for solicitors.  When it comes to confidentiality solicitors and barristers are held to an enhanced duty of care than that applied to the rest of us. Not only are solicitors regulated by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) like the rest of us, they are additionally regulated by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority (SRA) or Bar Standards Board (BSB).  Indeed the principle of confidentiality sits at the heart of both solicitors’ and barristers’ professional code of conduct and poor management of the document destruction process could land a legal firm or chambers in breach of the SRA or BSB rules, in addition to their duty under the Data Protection Act of 1998 & 2000.

Document destruction trail you can count on

For these reasons solicitors undoubtedly require a service they can depend on for all their document shredding needs.  Due to the sensitive nature of client documents such as legal proceedings and communications with Counsel we insist a high level of security is employed when your documents are delivered to our premises for security.  Our delivery and pickup trucks ensure confidential documents leave a legal practice in a secure condition and our service includes a fully certified audit trail and a ‘Certificate of Destruction’ is issued at the end of the process.  We shred documents to DIN level 3 within the BSIA regulations.
