Solicitors’ Assistance Scheme
17th September, 2014
David Potts, Partner in the Litigation team, is a member of the Solicitors’ Assistance Scheme, which offers independent professional support for solicitors.
David has been a member of SAS for over eight years and is proud to have provided assistance to a number of professional colleagues during that time.
The scheme isn’t just for solicitors, but for their employees and families too. In the last 35 years it has helped tens of thousands of people cope with a wide range of problems. The confidentiality principle is referred to in the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct, so those requiring assistance have complete assurance that they are speaking without the worry of the SAS member having to ‘whistle blow’.
David says of the scheme: “Since joining the scheme back in 2006 I have helped over a hundred people. My areas of expertise are partnership, negligence and disciplinary and I cover most of the North West. Sometimes I provide much-needed advice and other times I am simply there to confirm the appropriateness of the course of action being taken.
David Potts can be contacted on 01244 405508 or email [email protected] in first instance by anyone wishing to make use of his services by way of the SAS scheme.
