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.

We are a long-established group of modern lawyers who provide a personalised legal service for businesses and the people who create, grow, run and sell them; we look after you and your business, helping you to achieve your ambitions.

Whether you’re starting out in business or expanding internationally, our commercial experience can support you; or perhaps you’re looking to buy your first home or need to make a will – we offer a full range of services tailored to your needs.  In addition, we have a real depth of expertise in a number of specialist areas; these include franchising, noise nuisance and motorsport.

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.

Supporting World Cancer Day 2019; CRUK

16 Dec 2018

Together with Cancer Research UK, Solicitors Title is delighted to be holding an event on Thursday 14th February 2019 at Yeovil Innovation Centre (our Yeovil office) raising awareness around the impact of cancer, how you can help (including via Cancer Research UK’s Free Will Service) and the international research undertaken from the money raised, in support of World Cancer Day 2019.

Cancer Research UK is working with a number of other cancer charities, through World Cancer Day, to raise awareness and further support the work that they do. Each year, funds raised support thousands of scientists, doctors and nurses to accelerate progress in the fight against over 200 types of cancer.

Over a third of the research undertaken by Cancer Research UK into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer is funded through supporters leaving a legacy to the charity via their will; as a result we are proud to be part of CRUK’s Free Wills Service, locally.

Sadly, one in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. The generous gifts left by people through wills help cancer charities to continue their work to beat cancer sooner.

For more information about leaving a legacy gift and Cancer Research UK’s free will service, visit www.cruk.org/freewillservice or contact us

2019 marks Solicitors Title’s 21st Anniversary year and the firm’s 6th year based in Somerset making their team accessible to local individuals and families.

Setting up the First Health & Safety Franchise in the UK

Award Winning C2 Safety: Jerome Timbrell, Managing Director, on working with us: “The decision to use Solicitors Title was made so much easier when we met face to face with Richard James, head of Solicitors Title’s franchising practice. We wanted to use a professional law firm that spoke our language, especially as we are the first UK safety advisors to franchise our operations.

We needed someone knowledgeable, prompt and approachable; without doubt we got all three. The preparation of our franchising legal documents have been seamless; or one would even go so far as to say painless! We would have no hesitation recommending Solicitors Title to any ambitious business owners.”

Following a recommendation to us as specialists within the franchising industry, we were able to agree a package of work with C2 Safety ensuring that everything was covered but also, importantly, giving them the confidence that we would act as part of their team; this involved ongoing advice throughout the process, as well as working alongside our client’s franchising consultants. Our input not only included preparing BFA-compliant franchise documentation but also consideration of the operations manual and franchise information memorandum (FIM), allowing us to fully understand the business model. This is so important as a franchisor grows and begins to issue territories to new and prospective franchisees; for our experience in franchise disputes, including franchisees operating outside of a franchisor’s business formal franchise system, see our franchise disputes experience.

Our regular work on both sides of the table, i.e. for existing and new franchisees, as well as business owners who already operate a franchise model, allows us to recommend best practice and to discuss with our clients where things do go wrong.
