Calibre

ABOUT

Calibre is Feakes & Co’s free client membership programme. We’re keen to and stay in touch with our clients on a regular basis, as well as providing a personalised and accessible service. Calibre helps us do that by providing a real link between us as a law firm and our clients and other interested parties.

Joining Calibre is optional for Feakes & Co clients. You don’t have to join Calibre for us to be your lawyers – every client gets the same personal service and excellent legal advice and representation, whether or not they are a member of Calibre. However as a member you receive a range of benefits, including access to the member-only pages of the site with exclusive downloads, guides and an informative blog; a free legal advice helpline; and a regular newsletter.

You can also become a Premier member of Calibre on a monthly subscription basis. As well as the benefits above, Premier membership entitles you to discounted legal fees for you and your extended family; a free annual review of your will, LPAs and trust and estate plans; free certification of documents; and free document storage. For more details, see below.
