Specialist Sectors

Different sectors can, and frequently, do have very different legal needs and issues. It is a clear case of 'one size not fitting all'.

Services for Individuals

We are recognised as one of the leading regional firms in advising private clients on a broad range of issues relating to estates and private property, tax planning and family matters.

Services for Business

The law surrounding business, industry and commerce is complex and is the subject of frequent, and sometimes radical, change.
