In an increasingly challenging environment, you need world-class advice, support and protection tailored to your individual circumstances. To safeguard your interests long into the future, we need to charge a membership subscription that reflects the level of risk that is associated with your area of practice.
If you are in any doubt over any legal issue at any time, we would encourage you to get in touch immediately to ask our advice. There is no stigma attached to seeking guidance or support, and we would rather you asked for help in time to avoid a problem instead of waiting and hoping for the best, only to find yourself in greater difficulties later.
The benefits of membership of MPS are discretionary as set out in the Memorandum and Articles of Association. One of these benefits is the option for members to ask for assistance from MPS if they need help or support. MPS’s board of directors – MPS Council – uses discretion as to whether or not support should be given. As a mutual organisation, MPS continually weighs the interests of individual members against the interests of the membership as a whole. In some circumstances it may be appropriate to use discretion to decline or limit assistance, where assisting a member is not in the interests of the membership as a whole.
