Shred-it UK has joined the prestigious Law Society’s strategic partnership programme as a provider of confidential information destruction and recycling services.
The professional membership body serves 10,000 law firms and around 140,000 practising solicitors in England and Wales who are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. It is the voice of solicitors and focuses on driving excellence in the profession.
Fiona O’Mahony, Head of Partnerships and Sales for The Law Society said: “We very much welcome Shred-it as our latest Strategic Partner. Solicitors handle a vast amount of sensitive and confidential information daily and the adoption of UK-GDPR into domestic law re-emphasises the importance of safe storage and destruction. Shred-it’s six-point secure process and strong commitment to sustainability, will assist members to remain compliant and environmentally responsible.”
Shred-it will provide a variety of resources for the Law Society’s members including articles, unique thought leadership and events initially focused on the relationship between data security, hybrid work environments, recycling and sustainability.
Toby Black, SVP Shred-it UK said: “Whether it is confidential client, employee, third party or witness litigation information, it is business critical that personal and confidential data remains secure. Shred-it is already a trusted business partner with hundreds of law firms in the UK so we are very much looking forward to helping more practices securely destroy their unnecessary documents and digital media.”
From being awarded Superbrand status for the third consecutive year, to our Strategic Partnership with The Law Society, Shred-it is committed to demonstrating trusted partnerships while building strong foundations for mutual success in 2023 and beyond.
