With The Planning Inspectorate for England & Wales based here in Bristol, advising & representing nationally in planning (permission applications & appeals) is a specialist strength. Our highly-regarded claimant occupational disease compensation section has a formidable track-record representing clients with UK asbestos exposure (asbestosis, mesothelioma), respiratory disease and other conditions. Contesting wills, probate & inheritance disputes litigation is a core practice area. From Bristol offices our solicitors pursue & defend property, building disputes, professional negligence litigation (London & UK regional courts), unfair dismissal, employment & contract claims for personal clients.
The firm is not a legal factory turning out a mass-produced legal product. It offers, and it finds that many clients prefer, an independent approach. Personal case-handling by solicitors working in a financially-disciplined way is the aim.
We try always to be transparent about the legal process, giving advice and explaining options to clients in a concise and straightforward way, identifying clear courses of action, whatever the technical or legal complexities of the subject.
The costs approach is competitive, particularly by reference to the charge rates of larger firms. Charges are generally by reference to time & materials used, but the firm often agrees fixed fees for specific projects or in some cases, risk-adjusted funding structures.
