Legal Document Shredding

DAW Logistics Ltd offers an efficient and affordable legal document shredding service to the Yorkshire region’s legal practices.  Every legal practice in England and Wales must abide by strict confidentiality regulations laid down by the Solicitors’ Regulatory Authority.  Breaching these rules may lead to harsh consequences for solicitors and other legal practitioners.

One easy way to breach client confidentiality is through the poor management of paperwork and other client documentation.  If documents are not correctly stored and then shredded, there is a chance that they could eventually fall into criminal hands.  By investing in secure offsite storage and shredding, you may entirely guarantee you are meeting your obligations regarding client confidentiality.

How we can help?

DAW Logistics Ltd offers your legal practice a 100% assurance that your confidentiality obligations are being met.  This will give you ‘peace of mind’ knowing that client documents are stored for the correct amount of time and then correctly destroyed in a secure and professional manner.

At DAW Logistics Ltd, we store and destroy all manner of legal documents and deeds.  This includes paper documents, hard drives, discs and microfilm.  All document destruction is completed according to a strict retention policy.  This ensures legal documents are not shredded prematurely and in compliance with Statutes of Limitation.  We shred documents to DIN level 3 within the BSIA regulations.

Certificate of destruction

When legal documents are finally shredded, you may request a certification of destruction.  This certifies that documents were destroyed according to ISO standards and in compliance with UK laws.  We generally recommend you store each certificate of destruction we issue to prove you have met your compliance obligations if the need to issue such proof ever arises.

How our service works

When you engage our services, we agree to collect documents from your premises at agreed intervals.  This may entail daily collection, weekly collection or monthly collection intervals.

When documents arrive at our secure premises, documents are either stored according to a pre-agreed retention schedule or immediately shredded.  If you choose to digitalise your documents in-house, then documents may then be immediately shredded without breaching any industry-specific retention regulations.

Contact us today

For more information on our legal document shredding services, contact us today on 0800 015 5778.  All documents are stored and shredded according to strict ISO standards.  Following the completion of shredding, we will issue a valid certificate of destruction upon request.  This ensures your compliance obligations are met.  You may need to rely on such a certificate if your firm is ever audited by the Solicitors’ Regulatory Authority.
