From Our Website

Established over 125 years, we are one of the most experienced Law Firms in East Kent with offices in Folkestone and Dover. We hold the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme and LEXCEL which are recognised professional standards of excellence. We believe in traditional values but provide a modern, efficient and friendly client focused service. The Firm includes 5 partners and over 30 exceptional staff committed to delivering a full range of high quality legal services to small/medium sized businesses and to families and individuals at a fair cost.

The firm's history goes back over 125 years. We operate from impressive premises in prime business areas of Folkestone and Dover, and combine traditional law firm values of commitment, reliability and expertise with a modern thinking and progressive approach to the delivery of legal services. We are accessible, approachable and use plain English and we employ experienced staff with the skills to understand the requirements of clients and to deliver exceptional service. We are a high street practice and serve the needs of a wide range of business and individuals within our geographical catchment area and, indeed, from wider a field as a result of a high level of personal recommendations from satisfied clients and business colleagues.

We can advise and explain in plain English, what your rights are and how you can use them to your advantage. Our employment lawyers can apply their extensive knowledge, skills and experience to help resolve the specific issues which you are facing and provide as much or as little help as you require. We recognise that there are various complexities in any employment situation and will analyse the issues and make suitable recommendations to you. Depending upon the situation, options may involve legal processes or a solution designed to avoid legal conflict e.g.

If you have received poor service from a professional (for example an accountant, surveyor or lawyer) whose organisation boasts membership of various professional bodies apparently ensuring best practice, the feeling of being let down can be distressing and any remedy expensive to pursue. Complaints about a professional service are all too often met with an unhelpful, negative, sometimes even aggressive approach, even when there is a regulatory body to whom you can turn. Our lawyers can help you cut through the jargon that may be used to muddy the waters if your initial complaint is not treated seriously.

We have long experience in advising our business clients on the granting, enforcement and forfeiture of tenancies. Our business lawyers will ensure that the lease is secure and advise on the most cost effective and quick resolutions to any problems which arise. We aim to identify problems that may arise during transactions but, more important, provide the solutions.

Dealing with a dispute, whether it is small or large, can be a complex and stressful experience, especially if you are unsure about the costs and procedures involved. Our litigation lawyers regularly handle a wide range of disputes and we can provide practical and specialist advice with the aim of resolving your dispute quickly and cost-effectively. If you have had an accident in the last 3 years which was not your fault you may be entitled to compensation. Our personal injury lawyers have a wide range of expertise, from traffic accidents to injury in the work place.

Our commercial/company lawyers have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with the sale and purchase of businesses of all types. We advise business landlords and tenants on all aspects of business leases from start to termination and ensure you are fully aware of your rights and responsibilities in relation to it. Disputes all too frequently arise in the course of business and can become a major drain on management time and resources unless handled quickly and efficiently. Our commercial property lawyers have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with all aspects of commercial property conveyancing for our clients, who include developers and investors.

For most people, the buying of a new home or the selling of your existing home can be one of the most stressful times of your life.
