Wace Morgan have a long history of working with Armed Forces members and their families. We are a Founder Member of the Forces Law network and in 2016 we made a further commitment to the Armed Forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

Keir Hirst is the Secretary for Forces Law and our Complaints Officer, Trevor Wheatley, was one of the founding members. Keir commented “Military law is complex with its own rules and it is easy to come unstuck. There are very strict time limits to progress matters and we recommend that clients take early advice. We find that having a specialist knowledge of the unique legal issues raised in Armed Forces cases is a huge advantage and our new initiative will be more visible and accessible, reaching out to an even wider range of service people”.
