Firms of solicitors who want to solve the problem of what to do with money in their accounts that clients have left unclaimed can find a positive and practical solution through ECF.
The unclaimed balances can be channelled through ECF to give vital support to local organisations and charities working to make life better for people in Essex.
Several solicitors in the county have already taken the opportunity of transforming unclaimed balances into an asset for the community.
Now ECF is asking all firms of solicitors in the county to consider the same course of action.
Charles Latham, senior partner of Tolhurst Fisher LLP a leading firm of solicitors based in Southend and Chelmsford in Essex has no hesitation in recommending the solution offered by ECF.
He said: “When I was asked by my senior accounts manager to give thought as to how we could deal with some of our unclaimed client balances I immediately thought of Essex Community Foundation.
“Most of our clients are locally based and I feel that they would think that in this case the money would be best kept in the community to support the many good causes fostered by the Essex Community Foundation.
“I would urge other firms of solicitors in the county to give serious consideration to using their unclaimed balances in this way.”
