The founding directors of Martin Searle Solicitors reclaimed the concept of community law to express our work with all members of our community and the values we hold dear (approachability, commitment, ethics, honesty and integrity). We also live and breathe these values working with our own employees − we secured Investors in People in 2009 – and carrying out our voluntary work with local business organisations and charities.
During a recent independent assessment, Investors in People praised our “strong commitment to social responsibility… underpinning the caring reputation and social ethic the firm has developed and is proud of.''
In recognition of our community involvement, we won the Sussex Business in the Community Award in 2010. In March 2012 we won the Digital Media Campaign of the Year Award at the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards for our pregnancy and maternity rights campaign ‘Mind The Bump’, and in 2016 we won The Law Society Award for Excellence In Business Development.
