Who we are

We’re proud of our rich heritage of over 100 years of providing legal solutions and access to justice in Wales and beyond. Yet we understand that clients today expect more. We constantly develop and challenge our high standards of service to impress you, rather than hiding behind dusty legal books.

We are one of the most high profile firms in South Wales, with vibrant and busy offices in Cardiff, Newport and Pontypool (where we began) and in the City of London.

We offer a full range of legal services for individuals, including wills and probate matters, family matters, property, public and education law, personal injury and criminal law. We also have a strong Later Life team to offer you and your loved ones peace of mind pre retirement age and beyond.

Our commercial property and employment lawyers can fully support small to large businesses and professionals with any type of legal matter, from employment law to HR solutions and commercial property legal advice. Importantly, our teams are led by specialists in their field who understand what our clients need, expect and want, today and tomorrow.

Our people & you

Our down-to-earth, modern and realistic approach is supported by our ability to attract star quality lawyers. As well as offering you brilliant lawyers (that’s a given) we are approachable, determined, compassionate, fun, strong, realistic, charitable and campaigning lawyers – unafraid to do things differently if it helps our clients.

We are closely watched by our legal peers across the country as we win client care and service innovation awards, given to us for making accessing, paying for and understanding expert legal advice just that little bit easier.

We have amazing people queuing up to work with us so that they can help you and we’re very proud of that. Our next generation of lawyers shape our business and that’s the way we like it.

We are delighted to announce that our offices are now open to the public  between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday, by appointment.

We will continue to provide our services remotely outside those hours so that you will be able to contact us between 8.3oam and 5pm.

We have followed Welsh Government guidance to allow us to open our doors safely. We have hand sanitisers, PPE, protective screens and are enforcing  two metre spacing. We have also limited the numbers allowed in our buildings by operating a rota of those office working and those working remotely.

Thank you for your continued patience at this difficult time.

Stay safe and well.
