Legal Southwest Ltd
Our client is a dynamic and successful Devon-based firm. They have shown exceptional growth over the past few years and is now one of the largest practices in the County. They are unusual for a Southwest law firm, because they are based right across Devon, which means you’re never far from one of their locations in South Devon, North Devon and Exeter.
Neither too big, nor too small – they’re perfectly formed. With over 140 bright people, they are a genuine alternative to much larger firms and with significantly more to offer than smaller, high street solicitors. They never lose sight of what’s most important: to provide the best possible guidance in a no-nonsense, approachable and accessible way to clients across all sectors.
Because they are now one of the largest solicitors practices in the South West, it means that all solicitors specialise in their chosen fields of practice. They are also able to boast strength in depth as well. Partners are supported by lawyers and paralegals who have also chosen to specialise.
