Civil Law

We are a modern and progressive litigation law firm and operate a new legal services business model which significantly reduces our overheads and which means we can transfer the benefit of those cost savings back to our customers in the form of competitive fee rates.

Our business model means that clients have the option of choosing either, remote delivery of legal services which is simple, effective and cost efficient, or alternatively, the more traditional delivery of legal services via meetings in person at either our serviced offices, or at the client's business premises.

 Meetings are only incurred on an "as and when" used basis which means that we do not incur many of the significant property overheads which are incurred by other more traditional dispute resolution law firms.  

 Our expert team solicitors will initially assess the merits of any potential claim or defence. We will then provide an honest, robust and pragmatic assessment and opinion on the likelihood of successfully bringing, or defending a claim. We will not allow you to waste your money where the chances of succeeding in a claim are low.

Contracts

Robust, well-drafted contracts are essential to the performance and growth of any business. And if your commercial agreements do not have the basics of contract formation correct you could seriously damage your business. Your ability to deliver to your clients and meet your commercial targets could be greatly affected.

Working with you to understand the type of contracts you need

In today’s uncertain economic climate, organisations need contracts that are geared specifically toward their business. Of course, all contracts must follow a basic legal formula of offer, acceptance, consideration, and intention to create legal relations. But we go further, designing contracts that match your industry’s requirements and the other parties’ expectations.

Avoid Argument, Expense or Delay After Your Death

No one likes to think about what happens when they die. But if you don't, your family could suffer 

Delays, hardship and worry - even costly legal bills - are not the ideal legacy for a family in mourning.

Making a will means that what you own goes to those you care most about and not those that the law has chosen. And, if you have young children, you can include in your will the name of the person you would like to care for them rather than leaving the decision to the courts or social services.

A will is an important step towards peace of mind for you and security for your family. This is why we want to help with this important aspect.
