We can provide a written indemnity for all unclaimed client account fund donations. If your client resurfaces you can ask us for the funds back, making your donation risk free.
Many law firms support access to justice by donating residual client balances.
You can choose to support advice agencies in your former client’s local area, or to fund the area of law in which your client sought advice.
We make it simple for you by providing guidance and templates, as well as giving a written indemnity to help you meet your compliance requirements.
The Access to Justice Foundation can provide you with a written indemnity for your residual client balance donations.
