Welcome to Solicitors Title

Our clients tell us that they enjoy working with us. Why? Because we act as their legal partner, not just another service provider.

Covid-19 Update: Despite these difficult times, we are operational and open for business, but following the Prime Minister’s lock-down, our offices are no longer open to the public.  Please, however, contact us in the usual way and we will be happy to deal with any enquiries.

We are a long-established group of modern lawyers who have been providing a personalised legal service for businesses and the people who create, grow, run and sell them all over the UK. For our business clients we can offer a full range of services from trademarks and copyright, employment and shareholder agreements, through to mergers and acquisitions. We have significant expertise in franchising and are one of a limited number of firms in the south west with this much experience in the sector.

We have significant knowledge and expertise in property, both commercial and residential, conveyancing, landlord and tenant issues, title problems and boundary disputes.

Statistics show that many people who would benefit from legal advice shy away from seeking out help and support over uncertainties around costs; unlike almost all other law firms, we only charge our clients based on the actual time spent working on the matter or in many cases we will agree a fixed fee; we do not adopt an artificial 6-minute unit of time in our charges; after all if we’ve spent only 2 minutes on something, how can it be right to charge our clients for more? However, this this is the approach almost all other solicitors adopt!

Alongside our fairer charging policy, much of our work can now be undertaken for a fixed fee; where this is not possible or the best option, we will always provide an up-front estimate of our fees, mindful of the importance around transparency and Costs Information

We build long-term relationships with our clients, recognising that by delivering real value and cost-effective solutions, our clients are able to achieve their aims, effectively and efficiently. Our initial consultation is always free, just contact us or request a call back.

Where there’s a will there’s a way

18 Aug 2020

Solicitors Title was the first law firm in the country to appreciate the vital health and safety benefits of live-streaming video technology for its clients during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

We also set a new legal precedent on 1 May this year when, we supervised the first remotely executed video will for a client who was self-isolating 150 miles away in Surrey. This spared our client from any risk of being exposed to the coronavirus as well as allowing him to complete his will in the comfort and privacy of his home.

Dr Nicholas Bevan, senior associate solicitor, shared his ground breaking research with the government along with his proposals for an urgent intervention to encourage other lawyers to do the same.

Responding on the government’s behalf on 19 June this year, Lord Keen of Elie QC complimented our analysis, saying ‘It is an argument with force, set out in impressively comprehensive terms in Dr Bevan’s paper….I would like to thank him again for his detailed insights on the subject.’

On 25 July, the Government issued a press notice and guidance indicating that emergency legislation would be introduced in September.  The Government’s proposals are based on Dr Bevan’s research.

Writing in the prestigious New Law Journal, in Where there’s a will there’s a way Dr Bevan shares the further clarification provided in Lord Keen QC’s most recent letter of 4 August on the Government’s proposed wills reform.  Unfortunately, according to research released today by Today’s Wills & Probate, most law firms feel unequal to the task of executing wills using video technology.

Solicitors Title LLP, leads the will writing legal sector with this innovative nationwide private client service.  We welcome enquiries from members of the public up and down the country.  Our video witnessing will writing service has been devised to help anyone seeking to make a will in safety during the coronavirus pandemic.

For further details, please contact: Dr Nicholas Bevan on 01392 207900

Our Refreshing Approach – A Recent Client Testimonial

“What can I say about George, other than the guy is not only great at what he does, but he’s honest, reassuring and a genuine pleasure to talk to.

A few months back, my business was dealing with a very problematic client, one who left us in the middle of a feud between the business ownership teams. I thought we were in a no win situation and we were being hounded left and right by both sides, via multiple methods of communication all day and night!

One call to George and everything changed. He listened and crucially for me, did not judge the decisions I had made, both the understandable and questionable ones. He spoke to me with authority, but overall with understanding around the problem we were facing.

Within 2-3 days of George becoming involved everything was sorted and a resolution found, no doubt drawn from what I now know is the team’s depth of experience in the creative and technology space. A few weeks’ later, thanks to the work George and Richard, one of the partners, both did for us, we were finally able to cut the ties with this particular client.

If you find yourself in a hole like we did, even if it is something more straightforward, give George a call, you will not regret it. We are now planning to use Solicitors Title’s services for all of our businesses’ legal needs.”
