NORTHWICH-based legal firm, Susan Howarth & Co Solicitors has been included in this year’s Parliamentary Review as an example of best practice.

The review, chaired by Lord Eric Pickles and Lord David Blunkett, has now been released, featuring a range of thriving British businesses and educators.

The review aims to share best practice and raise industry standards by working with a number of successful organisations up and down the country, across the private and public sectors.

In this year's Parliamentary Review, director Susan Howarth discusses the Chesterway firm’s ethos, how we have achieved success before looking forward to the future for both the firm and sector.

Ms Howarth said: “Despite the considerable challenges faced by independent practices like ours throughout the UK, the belief that everyone has the right to access justice has always remained at the heart of our firm.

“Through good times and bad, we’re immensely proud to be a part this community and to continue supporting our local people. This is our story and we hope it is read widely.”

The review of the country’s Law and Justice also highlights 13 other law firm’s around the country and discusses changes to personal injury law and averted strikes by legal aid lawyers.

Writing a joint message in the review, Lord Pickles and Lord Blunkett said: “With ongoing fractures in Westminster, the reverberations of which are being felt across the country, it is essential that politicians have a firm understanding of the challenges with which British organisations must contend; and that leaders in both the public and private sectors are aware of the difficulties faced by those working in all levels of politics, from local government to the national arena.

“This is why The Parliamentary Review combines political content with stories from a wide range of organisations – small and large; new and old; those at the peak of their powers and those who have peaks to surmount.

“It is why these stories seek to inspire and challenge all who read them. And it is why we, as former Labour and Conservative cabinet ministers and current members of the House of Lords, feel it is important to put aside our political differences and work together to ensure these stories are given the platform they deserve.”
