It’s not just about staying out of trouble either. It’s about planning for growth and success. That’s why we put education and training at the start and heart of what we do.

Areas we train in:

A tailored and flexible approach to empowering you

At Fair and Square it was important to partner with a legal firm that understood the complex needs of the construction security of payments legislation but also the current changes to the legislation with the move to Project Bank Accounts. Our innovative business required a legal firm that was equally innovative, our values needed to match, we absolutely didn’t want a business as usual approach, so naturally Helix Legal was our choice for our legal requirements now and into the future.
