The One Advice Group (OAG) is proud to announce a new link with Otten Penna Solicitors. We have been working closely with Otten Penna to develop a cooperative relationship that will be mutually beneficial for all involved.

About Otten Penna

Otten Penna is a family law firm based in Northenden since 1988. They specialise in Family Law, Mental Health, Wills and LPA, Prenups and Domestic Abuse.

They have worked hard to build strong links with their local community by appearing at legal advice events around Manchester. And the professional and exceptional way they deal with their clients means they have a reputation of going the extra mile.

Being fair, open and straightforward with their clients is also something that’s very important to Otten Penna. This means they have a very similar ethos to the One Advice Group. And this week is Mental Health Awareness Week too. So there’s no better time to be mindful of how we treat customers who don’t have the capacity to make certain decisions about their finances or legal position, and welcome some extra support.

Why is the One Advice Group working with Otten Penna?

The relationship with Otten Penna came about through Businesses Working With Wythenshawe (BW3). A number of Otten Penna’s clients have debt issues so they wanted to be able to signpost them towards a trusted debt management provider.

We’ll be able to provide support to Otten Penna’s clients to help get them out of debt and we can also give them more general guidance on how to manage their money – adding value to Otten Penna’s business proposition.

What’s more, Otten Penna’s areas of law don’t conflict with our legal brand OpenDoor. So when appropriate, we’ll can advise Otten Penna clients who need help dealing with CCJs or bailiffs, giving the relationship even more benefits.

As part of the companies working together, we have created a range of joint-branded collateral, including leaflets, posters and wallet sized handouts. Otten Penna will be able to use and distribute these at their pop up legal advice sessions across local Manchester.

And this is only the beginning. The One Advice Group is looking to build links with other professional service providers like Otten Penna. Whenever we’re looking for a company to work with, it’s important that they share close values with us and those of our regulators.

For example, Otten Penna have a dedicated team to deal with vulnerable clients and provide them with the support they need. This is similar to our very own Specialist Support Unit (SSU), who handle our customers that need extra help dealing with their finances.
