"We aim to make getting good legal advice as easy as going to the opticians," Saleem Arif.
Leicester (Vocus/PRWEB) 14 March 2011
Leicester-based entrepreneur Saleem Arif, has confirmed the opening of the 170th branch of Quality Solicitors by the end of March, in a move that is set to revolutionise the High Street Legal services market forever.
The innovative legal services company is opening another 100 stores at the moment and will have opened 170 stores in the 10 months since its launch in May 2010.
QualitySolicitors, was developed by Saleem and his business partner, barrister Craig Holt, who wanted to make getting legal advice on the High Street, easy, and as hassle free as a visit to the opticians.
"Our aim has been to take the lottery element out of getting high street legal advice," says Saleem.
The idea came in response to concerns by High Street solicitors that with the changes in the legal services act coming in this Autumn, anyone could offer legal advice, and so huge High Street brands like supermarkets could drive many smaller solicitors out of business.
"QualitySolicitors enables some of the best High Street solicitors to re-brand under one recognisable, trusted name and have the support and quality guarantee of a national company behind them," says Saleem.
Saleem's background is quite extraordinary:
- Economics degree from Jesus College, Cambridge
- MBA from London Business School
- Ex-investment banker from Merrill Lynch and marketing consultant from McKinsey & Company
- Previously run a successful recruitment publishing company, Topemployers
- One of the founding directors of QualitySolicitors, the UK's largest legal brand.
"My involvement with and seeing the progress of QualitySolicitors is exceptionally exciting - in a market full of thousands of independent law firms, we are bringing together some of the UK's best law firms from different parts of the country under a single brand. Members of the public and businesses don't have to spend hours wondering if they are choosing the right law firm for their problem - they can go to any QualitySolicitors firm knowing they will receive exceptional service, clear, transparent pricing and excellent advice. We select only firms that have excellent public feedback and meet our stringent entry criteria to start with - we also monitor them on a continuous basis to ensure they meet the high standards we expect of every QualitySolicitors firm."
