When we say we’ll take it from here it isn’t an idle statement.
When clients instruct Carter Bond, we see it as the highest form of trust. Our job is to always obtain the right outcome for our clients by providing the highest quality legal advice. We don’t just present you with the legal options and tell you to make a choice, but we provide recommendations based on our expertise allowing clients to lean on us and truly rely on the advice they pay for.
Our aim is to ensure that clients always feel informed and in control of their matter.
This is why, we provide our clients with regular updates, whenever they require, so they aren’t left guessing. We also ensure that our costs are fully transparent so clients are never concerned about how fees are spent.

WHY CARTER BOND
Unlike many law firms when we say partner or barrister led, we mean partner or barrister led. When clients work with us, they get constant access to the lead on their instruction. Yes, we have a team of solicitors and juniors for some of the groundwork and necessary research required by our clients, but this is when it makes financial sense to the client for us to do this. We provide constant contact at no extra cost as part of our service as most of our lawyers have their own business, so they know first-hand how important having a proactive, responsible and trusted partner on their side can be. And also how to work to a financial budget, and the way that legal decisions impact the wider organisation, which often requires balancing risks and competing interests.
City quality, outer City fees
As the world changes, professionals in our society are realising that lifestyle is as vital to them as income. We are the lucky ones who have hand-picked lawyers who can provide the best quality advice but at outer City costs. Our offices are in North West London, which may not be in the City’s centre but at the same time this gives us two key advantages to set us apart:
- It allows us to charge our clients for what they pay for, our advice NOT our office space.
- Our staff save time and hassle on commutes which translates into a healthier working environment and more friendly and timely advice delivered to you.
ALL our lawyers have previously worked in large City-based law firms and continue to practise and offer the same high level of service they provided to clients in the City, but without the pressure and demands often dictated by City law firms. This allows us to be competitive on our fees without compromising our service.
We have made smart decisions about the way we operate, so you can trust us to help you make smart decisions about your matter.
All in all, our clients win, which is the way we like it.
Many ask us ‘what’s different about you?’ and we like to reply, ‘because we go the extra mile’. We see our work as building and maintaining good business relationships rather than just earning fees. How we do this is by keeping in constant contact with our clients and intermediaries. From pre to post instruction we ensure that our clients are informed of all legal issues that may impact their business and therefore lives. That is why we provide daily or weekly updates to ALL of our clients whether there is anything to tell them or not (we don’t charge for this we just see it as part of our service). We like our clients to rest peacefully knowing that when we are instructed, and we say ‘we will take it from here’ they know we mean it.
Our knowledge and resources are yours
All our clients benefit from the same high level of care and attention whether the instruction is big or small. At the outset of each matter, we discuss the entire process with our clients, including the costs, potential outcomes and issues associated. This is to ensure clients are fully aware, knowledgeable and are in control always. Supporting and ensuring we provide the highest level of services, we offer our constant contact process with the partner or barrister leading your file, a document log in for matters which are for larger and more complicated instructions and on-going support post transaction should our clients require it. Our aim is not just to get the work done, but to make our clients’ lives easier as we do it, which is why we ensure that our clients have regular access to the resources they need from us.
