Who Is Fortis Law?

Fortis Law, a brand-new Law Firm, is looking to innovate the legal profession with its forward-thinking, modern, no-nonsense approach to legal services. Underpinned by its five core values, which embody the culture and spirit of the company and its commitment to its customers it is seeking to challenge the status quo to strive for world-class customer service excellence in everything it does.

Recognising that communication is key to the success of the firm and with a digital ambition, it has made a significant investment in technology to drive efficiencies and provide alternative communication channels for its customers rather than relying on the traditional methods which are synonymous with the legal sector at large.

With its strong brand values and a friendly and approachable style; Fortis Law has introduced creative and innovative services to provide genuine peace of mind for families and to help customers to successfully navigate the legal sector.  With a transparent approach, especially to pricing, Fortis Law is passionate to drive change to ensure that all fees are fair and are clearly displayed to customers regardless of a company’s regulatory status.

By collaborating and forming strategic partnerships with like-minded organisations and as the preferred lifetime trust provider for the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW), Fortis Law is able to offer invaluable back office drafting services to the estate planning profession with better communication, resources and a credible infrastructure as well as regular training sessions conducted by Learning and Development Manager, Peter Burton to support Estate Planners in achieving their Continuing Professional Development requirements. The appointment of Thomas Stansfield as Business Development Manager ensures commercial partners have the necessary relationship management and a point of contact within the firm.

Following a raft of new appointments, Richard Wells is now joined on the Board of Directors by Kylie Simmonds-Cox as Chief Operating Officer; who has over 20 years industry experience, and a full member of Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (TEP) and represents the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW) as an elected council member. Rebecca Sharwood who has 20+ years PQE and will be joining at Head of Legal Practice and William Eccleston previously predominant in the Funeral Planning Sector has been appointed as Commercial Director.
