The way solicitors
Solicitors should be seen as more than just an expensive necessity. We think you deserve a better kind of service – one that’s more in tune with you and the realities of the world out there. What you really want to know is – will we actually listen to what you need, give you a straight-forward answer you can act on and charge you a realistic fee?
Well, the answer is yes, yes and yes.
Isn’t that the way solicitors should be?
Helping you to resolve your business, commercial and workplace disputes in a fast, effective and cost-effective way: The days of disproportionate legal fees, restrictive, protracted formal legal proceedings, and contentious correspondence, are numbered. Individuals and their lawyers are instead choosing more pragmatic dispute resolution…. Mediation provides considerable latitude to participants to explore infinite solutions, and create a bespoke resolution quickly, in order that they can move forwards.

We think in full colour,but keep things black & white
From our origins in the 19th century advising Devon landowners, farmers and sea traders, we’ve grown into one of the largest solicitors in the South West, with exceptional specialists across private client matters as well as company and commercial law.
North, South, East or West. Wherever you are, we’ve got you covered. We’re unusual for a South West law firm, because we’re based right across Devon, which means you’re never far from one of our locations in South Devon, North Devon and Exeter. Our head office is in Torquay, the home of our new south Devon office.
With nearly 200 bright people, we think we’re a genuine alternative to much larger firms and with significantly more to offer than smaller, high street solicitors. Yet we never lose sight of what’s most important: to provide the best possible guidance in a no-nonsense, approachable and accessible way.
What is the secret formula for being a great lawyer? To actually listen to your client and take the time we need to get to the nub of the matter. It’s why getting to really know you is at the heart of our service philosophy. Because if we don’t try to understand you, how can we possibly give you the best, tailored advice?
When we’re not advising about law, we’re often helping or supporting local charities, good causes or community projects and events. By getting widely involved with the colourful melting pot that is our community and, hopefully, enriching the lives of others, the reward is that we’ll be enriched too.
Doing the best for our clients will always be our driving force, but we’re also pretty proud of our haul of industry awards over the years – such as winning the top prize for Excellence in Private Client Practice at the Law Society’s Excellence Awards and Law Firm of the Year at the Devon and Somerset Law Society Legal Awards.
