From Our Website

As well-known and trusted solicitors in Luton, Dunstable and Shefford we are dedicated to providing a professional, caring and cost effective service to all our clients. We offer a full range of legal services for individuals and businesses, so whether you are buying or selling a house, separating from your spouse or partner, buying a business, had an accident at work, making a will or are planning how you want to leave your assets, we have specialist lawyers to help and guide you through the process.

Knowles Benning is a local, long established solicitors practice, who have been providing legal services to individuals and businesses for over 250 years. We have three partners and over fifty staff providing a full range of legal services, by specialist lawyers and their teams. Establishing and maintaining good relationships with our clients and helping them achieve their objectives in a professional and cost effective way is central to the way we do business. Knowles Benning LLP is a limited liability partnership, authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

We advise on all aspects of Employment Law with the employee life cycle from recruitment, contracts of employment and policies; to day to day training, performance management, advising on disciplinary and grievance procedures and termination. We can be involved in the conciliation and negotiation with an employee and assist in drafting a settlement agreement to prevent an employee from bringing a claim in an employment tribunal.

If you have had an accident in the last three years which was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation - also called "damages". In addition you may be able to recover the cost of any treatment required or adaptations to your home to help get you back on your feet. Where appropriate we will seek interim payments to ensure you can begin to recover compensation as soon as possible, even before the whole claim is finished. If there is a risk of your condition deteriorating in the future, we can explore with you the possibility of provisional damages which would enable us to seek further compensation in future if things did get worse.

Our experienced team are able to guide you both professionally and efficiently through often complex and emotional matters with understanding, whether you are coping with bereavement, anxious about Wills or the implications of Power of Attorney documents or Deputy Applications. Antonio Fallanca, Head of the Department, is a member of STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners). For anyone housebound, in hospital or a care home, we can offer an out-of-office appointment service.

A tenancy or lease exists where someone lets premises to another for a term in return for a rent. The term of the letting is usually a number of years. The expression "business lease" is commonly used to refer to a tenancy of premises used for the purposes of running some kind of business. The premises may be a building, part of a building, or even open land, used for example as a temporary car park. Our lawyers have many years of experience in working for Landlords and Tenants with a variety of commercial leases.

If you are involved in purchasing, selling or leasing commercial property, either as an owner, occupier, investor or developer, you must make sure you are properly advised. Through building a close individual working relationship with our clients, each member of the Property Team aims to understand their business and their ambitions. By recognising these key objectives we ensure that we provide balanced, clear, commercial advice and a truly personal service. Our lawyers, working with other property professionals, such as your estate agent, surveyors, planning consultant and accountants, can manage any size of project.
