How the law impacts your business is often dictated by the sector in which you operate. Having access to expert advisers that you can call upon who understand the legal issues related to your industry is a priceless commodity.

Our teams include specialists with years of experience supporting clients in the following sectors:

  • Agricultural and Rural
  • Construction & Engineering

Taking a sector-led approach allows our lawyers to work collectively to combine a range of specialisms. This helps ensure that clients receive a joined-up service and comprehensive legal solutions based on their objectives.

Services for individuals

Our aim is to provide the best legal solutions for individuals in the most effective and cost-efficient way possible. From cradle to grave, the law impacts on us all in our daily lives. We’re with you every step along the way, providing advice and guidance whenever you need it, in good times and bad.

Dispute Resolution and Bankruptcy

As an individual, it can be daunting when you are involved in a dispute with an organisation – whether as a tenant, a carer, a beneficiary, a customer or a contractor. In any of these situations and others, we help individuals every day in finding positive solutions to their disputes.

We deal with a wide variety of contentious probate claims made against estates and involving property, trusts and Wills.

If you are facing bankruptcy, we can also advise on the implications, the process involved and the legal restrictions it imposes.

Our experienced specialist teams and trained mediators are ready to help you, resolving issues without the need for Court action wherever possible.

Private Client

As a forward-thinking firm, we are always looking to the future – our own and yours. Making preparations for your estate and looking after future generations of your family involve important legal decisions on which we can offer guidance.

Our experienced team comprises specialists in drafting Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney’s, Court of Protection issues, estate planning and administration, care home fees, and wealth preservation.

Relationships built on trust are important to us. We’re here to listen and advise, always focused on your needs and goals.


It’s often said that buying or selling a house is one of the most stressful experiences in life. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

We can help ensure that the legal aspects of your transaction are dealt with as smoothly as possible. Recognising the importance of explaining the steps involved, we will communicate clearly with you on any concerns you may have with your sale or purchase.

You can have confidence that our conveyancing team will guide you throughout the process and respond to any questions you may have.


At any stage in your career, you may be faced with an issue concerning your employment rights. In such instances, it may be worth seeking legal advice to establish whether you have been treated fairly by your employer or a potential employer.

Our team provides advice on a range of issues, including contractual terms and clauses, disciplinary procedures and discrimination claims. If possible, we will seek a mediated resolution but we can also help you prepare for tribunal hearings and provide representation if required.

We deliver a responsive, approachable and no-nonsense service designed to keep things simple and minimise the impact of the situation on your daily life.


Every family situation is different from the next. Getting to know you and understanding your priorities is crucial to us in protecting your interests and identifying the right solutions to meet your needs.

We can help you plan ahead through a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement or, if your relationship has broken down, we can guide you through the legal aspects of a separation or divorce.

Whatever your situation, our experienced team will explain the options available and give you the tools to make the best decisions for you and your family. At all times, we aim to minimise stress by delivering a confidential, impartial and responsive service that helps you deal with the present and look to the future.


There are key differences in the law relating to property and inheritance in France, Spain and Italy compared with those in the UK so having access to a single source of legal advice who can deal expertly with cross-border estates is invaluable.

Our bilingual lawyers can provide a comprehensive service to assist you in making a smooth property transaction or to deal with all aspects of your cross-border estate.

Equally, our Notary Public can check and authenticate any documents required for use overseas.
