Law firm Goughs has reaffirmed its commitment to helping the armed forces community ahead of Armed Forces Week, which starts on Monday (June 22).

The firm was one of 4,000 businesses and organisations nationally that signed The Armed Forces Covenant five years ago.

The covenant represents a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.

Goughs pledge to the armed forces community included:

  • An initial appointment for legal advice free of charge, if necessary outside business hours
  • Discounted charges for all legal work, fixed fees for certain areas of law, and complete transparency and clarity on all our fees
  • Free legal advice surgeries at appropriate armed forces community locations
  • Free legal seminars in the same way

Partner, and head of the Armed Forces Sector, Richard Bebb said: "As a long-established Wiltshire business, we wanted to give something back to the armed forces based in our county and beyond, and we knew that we had the expertise and personal skills which would be of great benefit them."

The firm has a dedicated email address for military personnel who need legal advice: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
