Specialist Edge for New Practice

Exeter firm Solicitors Title will establish the office, which will see Somerset lawyer Richard James join existing partners Janet Milton and Mervyn Rundle to develop the business law side of the practice.

Mr James’ experience in corporate and commercial law, in addition to franchising – he is one of only a few specialist lawyers in the UK in this field – will be crucial to the new enterprise.

Having gained a law degree at the University of Southampton, Mr James went on to work in a number of high-profile practices, including in the City of London, and previous clients have included such blue-chip firms as Alliance Unichem, Fujifilm and Clarks shoes.
Ms Milton said: “Since relocating to the South West in 2009, Richard has built up a loyal following.
“This complements Solicitors Title’s ethos of providing a competitively-priced, high quality, personal service.”

Mr James said: “For the majority of clients, the traditional law firm business model
doesn’t appeal any more – they are demanding a different approach, and it is up to us to engage with them through channels such as social media to understand what they want from a 21st century law firm and then to deliver it; and we plan to do just that. We should be open in Yeovil by the spring.”
