Our Service

Serving the Ministry of Justice and Legal 500

We offer a range of legal transcription, court reporting and summary services.

  • Tape and Audio Transcription: we work from any type of tape or digital audio and deliver accurate transcripts even to demanding deadlines.
  • Reporting: our court reporters are among the most skilled and experienced in the UK. We can provide high levels of security clearance. Confidentiality is always a priority.
  • Summary documents: in some cases a summary is more useful than a verbatim transcript. We can advise on the document that will best meet your needs.
