One of Wales’ oldest law firms, Watkins & Gunn, has opened its first Cardiff office at Sophia House, 28 Cathedral Road, Cardiff.
 
An award winning business covering South Wales, their mission statement is to exceed clients’ expectations and to offer an unrivalled service, insisting on the highest standards of client care throughout the firm.
 
This is the third location for the firm who also have premises in Newport and Pontypool. The Cardiff branch is opening on the back of an extremely positive year which has seen fee income grow by 20 per cent and client satisfaction levels reach an all time high of 98 per cent.
 
Led by partners Clive Thomas, Sophie Hughes, Jonathan Wellington and Sarah Williams, in 2009 Watkins & Gunn became the first Welsh firm to win the coveted Law Society’s annual Excellence Award for Practice Management and the delivery of services to clients.  They have since continued to be recognised for excellence and the last few months have seen the firm and its staff pick up a number of prestigious awards and accreditations. These have included the firm being crowned “ Law Firm of the Year 2011” at the 360 Legal Awards, where they were described as “one of the UK’s most progressive law firms”,  and Managing Partner Clive winning the Leading Wales Award for Leadership in the Private Sector.
 
The opening of the new offices come at a crucial time for the the firm with the introduction of the Legal Services Act. Watkins & Gunn has taken a number of measures to ensure that they maintain and increase their client base in the face of this new challenge to the sector, including introducing a new Platinum service.
 
Watkins & Gunn now offer extended opening hours and new, competitive offerings. Whilst the firm already has a strong reputation for the excellent levels of customer service they provide, their new Platinum offering gives the same high quality service with an increased flexibility to meet the needs of their clients' hectic lifestyles.
 
One of the benefits of their new bespoke package is that Platinum clients will have their own designated specialist lawyer who can be contacted outside traditional office hours and they can meet their solicitor at their preferred location, be it at their office or in the comfort of their own home.
 
Watkins & Gunn Platinum allows clients round the clock access to one of the team’s accomplished lawyers, enabling them to engage legal services on their own terms.
