Social Housing

  • Having worked with this firm for a number of years I can speak first hand of their quality. Led by their excellent and dynamic senior partner, Andrew Harmer, all of their Partners and Associates are first rate. Recently, Leo Stevens undertook conveyancing work for me within a very tight time scale. He worked incredibly hard and demonstrated that he is an asset to his firm. All of my queries were dealt with very promptly and he was a pleasure to deal with. He kept us informed of developments at all steps during the process and worked effectively with his staff to achieve a smooth completion. I was very impressed.

Individual Services

Wills Trusts and probate

  • Really great team. Thanks to Edward, Sarah and Annmarie.
  • My mother and I enlisted Batchelors Solicitors to help us resolve the estate of her adoptive brother, who had sadly and suddenly passed away while visiting the States. Annmarie, Katia and the entire team have been wonderful towards us. They have helped us navigate a very confusing and foreign legal process by answering questions, offering wise counsel and making sure we didn't stumble. These sorts of legal issues are stressful and complex, but we would recommend this legal team without hesitation. Personally, I wish to thank them on behalf of my mother. They helped make this painful process relatively painless.
  • Thank you Annmarie for preparing my will. The service was professional, timely and cost-effective. I will use Batchelors again in the future.
