Solicitors and Accountants: Working Well & Smart!

Back by popular demand, our annual conference (a firm favourite with all our delegates), looks at many topics of mutual interest to both solicitors and accountants, including a practical look at how we run our practices through to mortgages, client money and technical issues we all face.

Are there any areas you think we could improve on? Nothing, everything's great. Everyone we deal with could not be more helpful. Do we deliver a fast and efficient service? Yes.  We just appreciate how very professional your service is. What's the best thing about Dodd & Co? The way Alan and other staff look after us.
