Scott White and Hookins LLP

We are delighted to announce that, in common with many other professional services firms, we are converting to limited liability partnership (LLP) status, effective from 1st April 2013. The limited liability partnership will also encompass the businesses of SWH Health and Safety Ltd and SWH Ltd, which will cease to exist as separate legal entities. SWH Approved Inspectors Ltd will remain a separate company outside the LLP but owned by it.

It is important to us that we continue to operate as a modern and efficient organisation attracting and retaining the best talent. Conversion will help with this objective.

This conversion will not affect the delivery or quality of the service we provide to our clients. It will remain our policy that every project, whatever its size, is overseen by a Partner from inception to completion, ensuring that the interests of our clients continue to come first.

The practical effect of the change will be that your ongoing relationship will be with Scott White and Hookins LLP, which will be responsible for all work for our clients, rather than Scott White and Hookins (the existing partnership), SWH Health and Safety Ltd or SWH Ltd.

All business assets will be transferred to, and liabilities assumed by, the LLP on 1st April 2013 and the original partnership, SWH Health and Safety Ltd and SWH Ltd will cease to accept new business from the same date. Any existing terms and conditions which have been previously agreed with Scott White and Hookins (the partnership), SWH Health and Safety Ltd or SWH Ltd will continue to operate as set out in the original instructions, and will comprise the terms of your contract with Scott White and Hookins LLP.
