About Us

Overview

As an independent owner managed business every client matters to us.

Our success is founded on building long lasting relationships so we can support you as an individual and in business.

Every client, from start-ups to owner managed businesses and multinationals, as well as private individuals and families, is provided with a single dedicated client relationship manger.  Their role is simple; they get to know you and your needs and ensure that you we are supporting you as best as possible across our firm.

We are uniquely placed, as an independent firm, to ensure that you are introduced to the right people and businesses for you.

Whilst we have been based in Reading and the Thames Valley for over 30 years and are committed to supporting the local community, we are also part of an international network of law firms enabling us to support you in the UK and overseas.

We are regularly recognised and highly ranked in both of the UK’s leading legal directories, Chambers and Partners and Legal 500.  We have also been accredited by Lexcel since 2001 for our excellence in legal practice management and client care.

In the same way that we build lasting relationships to support our clients through their personal and business lives, we aim to do the same for our employees.  We have a record in career development, are Investors In People accredited and our recently refurbished offices in the heart of Reading are a great place to work.
