Solicitors For You & Your Family

Solicitors in Reading & Henley-on-Thames

Everyone needs legal advice at some stage in their life, often for positive reasons, sometimes sadly less so. 

From redundancy to a relationship breakdown, moving house or planning for your family’s future, we have the experience to help you.

Our specialist solicitors work with a broad range of clients, from first time buyers to established property investors, high net worth individuals and business owners to families and elderly or vulnerable individuals. Our comprehensive range of legal services allows you to seamlessly and cost-effectively manage all of your legal needs using a single firm of solicitors.

We are also very proud of the fact that many of our clients stay with us throughout their lifetimes and to act for some families across generations.

A Highly Personal Service

We compare very favourably alongside national, city and larger regional firms and pride ourselves on providing clear, practical, understanding and effective legal advice, a responsive and highly personal service and, crucially, value for money, as reflected in the excellent client feedback we continue to receive. 

Our offices, in Reading, Henley-on-Thames and London are centrally and conveniently located. But, when considering your options, don’t necessarily limit yourself to firms within your local area. We are experienced in working with our clients remotely and adept at dealing with matters in this way, meaning that you can expect the same expert legal advice and excellent client care on which our leading reputation is based, however you decide to work with us. Where appropriate, we may also be able to travel to see you for an initial or subsequent meetings.

Unlike seemingly lower cost alternatives, your solicitor or adviser will be on-hand and easily contactable when needed, providing peace of mind and ensuring that you are kept fully informed at every stage.
