Customer Testimonials

We have bought and sold numerous properties through Coffin Mew with Ian and the team leading on all of them. The team are meticulous and professional whilst ensuring things are dealt with in a timely manner. We haven't gone to any other companies because we know the service at coffin mew is first rate. Friendly and reliable, we would recommend Ian and his team to anyone.

We used Coffin Mew Solicitors for our first home new built purchase. We've been dealing with Natalie Marsh, who has been very helpful, kept us informed throughout the whole process and was always available to assist with any questions. The services were clearly explained, the pricing was transparent and the whole process was made easy for us. Would definitely recommend.

We have used Coffin Mew to undertake the sale of our previous and purchase of our new home and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. The team, led by Ian Peach, kept us regularly informed of progress and provided clear guidance to any queries we had. Ian in particular went above and beyond when the transaction ran into some challenges and worked tirelessly (included updating us at weekends),to finally bring an exchange to an lengthy chain.

As a local estate agent, finding a trusted solicitor to work on behalf of clients can be difficult. Jodie Williams and the rest of the conveyancing team at Coffin Mew have been incredibly helpful throughout the time I've been working alongside them - can't recommend highly enough.

We recently used Coffin Mew Solicitors for our conveyancing and were appointed Genni Tipping and her team.
We had a very positive experience, despite a few hurdles in the house buying process which were handled very efficiently and quickly. The real star of the show was Emily Merritt who provided us with a first class service. Emily was extremely professional, incredibly good at what she does and an extremely approachable person- we were always welcomed when we turned up and nothing was ever too much trouble. Thanks to Emily, our house sale was completed quickly and efficiently. We would definitely recommend this company and would not use anyone else now.

Myself and my business partner went into your Portsmouth branch this week so we could sit down and sort out all the contracts we need for our new translation company we are about to launch. We can't thank Andrew Jerrard enough. He is fantastic and knew exactly what is was we needed legally! He made us feel welcome, and it was a very friendly atmosphere and Andrew made us feel right at home! We are glad we have picked Coffin Mew as our solicitors and we couldn't be happier with the customer service we received! So thankyou

From Our Website

Coffin Mew is a straight talking, commercial and responsive law firm with offices across the South and Thames Valley. We provide tailored and personal legal advice to businesses and individuals to help protect their business, assets and families. Our client focused strategy aims to bring the best people and innovation together to deliver great results for every client. As specialists both in our legal practice areas and also in the Agriculture & Rural Business, Care & Protection, Real Estate, Private Wealth, and Technology sectors, we understand the risks and opportunities affecting businesses and individuals in these markets so we can give the best possible legal advice to our clients.

Coffin Mew's leading commercial property team helps clients buy, sell, lease, develop and secure finance against real estate. Our team of dedicated property specialists lead the market in the sector. We are highly regarded and respected for the breadth and depth of services given to organisations, institutions, investors, charities and property agents. We will invest time to understand your business, objectives and challenges. We are happy to organise a no-obligation meeting to discuss the ways we can help you to achieve your objectives.

Many companies, particularly SMEs, can avoid falling foul of competition rules by ensuring they stay within the terms of the EU Block Exemption on Vertical Agreements, or the Commission Notice on Agreements of Minor Importance. But, for large corporate groups, this is often not possible because of the size of their turnover or their share of a particular market. We have extensive experience supporting international and European operations to develop robust pricing and distribution strategies that achieve their commercial objectives whilst ensuring they act lawfully at all times.

Litigation is often difficult, expensive and stressful. At Coffin Mew we have a highly regarded Dispute Resolution team with a proven track record and reputation. We have acted successfully on many high profile cases and we can be trusted with the most difficult disputes at the most difficult of times for our clients. We believe that effective dispute resolution is best managed by senior lawyers taking a hands-on approach and through dedicated junior lawyer involvement. Our team is structured accordingly.

The success of any business will be very closely linked to the quality of the contracts it enters into. Good contracts will ensure that a business secures its assets and income, and protects it from unexpected or unwanted liability. Coffin Mew's Commercial & Intellectual Property team negotiates and structures all types of commercial agreements to serve our clients' business needs. The agreements and arrangements that we negotiate and prepare are as varied and diverse as our client base and the industries in which our clients operate.

We specialise in providing employment law services to businesses and organisations, and we offer practical, commercial advice that helps you run your business smoothly. Whether you need legal advice relating to an individual employee or a strategic matter affecting your entire workforce, you will receive clear and commercial advice and solutions tailored to your unique circumstances and demands. We will work carefully with you to draw up a strategy and process that minimises both the potential of litigation and any unnecessary costs and time away from your business.

Our team of business law experts understand that it's not a case of one size fits all, and we are able to draw on our sector expertise, market knowledge and key contacts to provide our clients with more than just legal advice. Our expertise includes commercial and intellectual property services, corporate law, commercial property, employment and immigration law, dispute resolution, and restructuring and insolvency.

Coffin Mew's Corporate team has established a reputation as one of the leading transactional teams in the region. Consistently ranked in legal directories Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners our clients come to us seeking advice during all stages of their business endeavours. Our clients range from large multinationals to small owner managed businesses.
