We are a city practice that is now based on the outskirts of Nottingham, specialising in the efficient resolution of legal problems as commercial and personal solicitors for our private and business clients. Most of our work involves business and other commercial issues, but we also undertake conveyancing, personal injury and probate work. Our clients are based in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and the East Midlands area as well as elsewhere in the UK and worldwide.

We pride ourselves on our professionalism while remaining approachable and informal. Most of our clients come to us by way of recommendation and referral and we would be happy to put you in contact with them should you require references. We are proud that our work is accredited to the Law Society's Lexcel mark of practice excellence, and we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Our offices are at Nottingham, near West Bridgford. They are easy to find and quick to get to from the road network around Nottingham city centre. We deal with personal injury claims, litigation, wills and probate and conveyancing, and company/commercial work. We have ample free parking, and the offices are easily accessible by disabled clients. As commercial and personal solicitors we are always happy to visit you at your home or your business premises if this is more convenient for you.
