Who Are They?

Brearley Law is an established law firm based in Yorkshire, composed of a dedicated 3-man team of solicitors who provide legal services in conveyancing, litigation, costs work and wills and probate. 

With 45 collective years of legal experience, Brearley Law aims to deliver a personalised experience to their clients, ensuring their services are both efficient and stress-free.

An Eye-catching Price Tag

As the dust settled after the introduction of GDPR to businesses, Brearley Law noticed the fast-paced cybersecurity transformation taking hold of businesses across the UK, intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic.

They realised the importance of what they saw other companies undertaking, and they too wanted to protect data and ensure compliance by offering their clients a secure email solution.

This led them to Mailock, a very economical solution compared to other pricier alternatives that they had considered, which played a large part in why they chose to sign up in October 2019.

"The cheap and effective use of encrypted emails was something we had to take on board."

Security-conscious Clients

From the start, Brearley Law has appreciated the level of security that Mailock brings to their communications.

They now habitually use Mailock to securely send sensitive documents such as bank details and statements to their clients or colleagues.

Peter explains that by using Mailock to transmit confidential data to his clients, they know to rely on and trust the information they’ve received, alleviating any fears.

"Many clients use it because they don’t want to send bank statements and other confidential information by any other means. I will email them using Mailock and invite them to register for free, so that they can, at no cost to themselves, send me those sensitive documents."
— Peter Brearley, Consultant Solicitor
