Authorised Law Firm badge

View our Authorised Law Firm digital badge here. The badge is hosted by a third party (which purports to act as a processor of the Solicitors Regulation Authority). They used to load Google Analytics automatically, but the SRA has said that it is not going to do so "at the moment". As we cannot be sure when they might start to use it again, we suggest that you only view our badge if you are willing to send your IP address to the third party, and Google (to load a jQuery resource), and potentially for them to run Google Analytics JavaScript on your device. Here is the third party's privacy notice.
