Legal Transcription

Essential Secretary works with legal clients from smaller specialist practices to governmental departments and larger international organisations throughout the UK and worldwide.  We provide confidential, efficient and professional transcription services and can be relied upon to perform a myriad of tasks for a wide range of clients including solicitors, barristers, insurance firms, government bodies, police, enforcement organisations, emergency services, security firms and the coast guard.

PACE (Police and Criminal Evidence) Under Caution Interviews

Whether they are used for investigation, disciplinary, interview or public safety purposes, they provide a comprehensive and complete evidential account of the spoken word.  We are committed to extract and transcribe sensitive material that needs to be completely verbatim for legal purposes.

Highly sensitive material for court cases, disciplinary hearings and adjudication panel hearings are easily transcribed by our highly skilled and experienced transcribers who pay attention to detail and take the utmost care in assuring a professional and efficient time stamped transcription service.

As these recordings can be time stamped with either a GMT or elapsed time, we have specialist equipment enabling us to extract both the content of the interview and relevant time coding to the transcript for legal purposes.

Court Reporting

Our experience of working with the members of the legal industry over the years has given us the relevant foundation to understand what is required of at Court.  Working closely with our clients allows us to produce transcripts using specific formats and templates, enabling us to present our transcripts to a legally accepted standard.  In addition, we can also provide legal professionals with a comprehensive searchable word index from delivery to closing argument.


Here we consider confidentiality to be paramount.  Not only are we registered under the Data Protection Act, but each member of our staff is required to enter into an individual Non-Disclosure Agreement as part of their contract and company policy, to protect the interest of all parties concerned.  We can provide a standard Confidentiality Agreement to our clients, or are more than happy as a Company to enter into an agreement drawn up by the client.
