We are a small but specialist practice deliberately offering a limited range of commercial legal services. This is because we cannot be all things to all man. To do so will detract us in being specialists in what we do. Although we are only a few years old having being created in March 2016], we have a long standing history having been born out of the traditional practice of Edward Hands and Lewis Solicitors (which started in 1876). Given the traditional perception of lawyers and law firms, as modern pragmatic lawyers we are seeking to challenge the norm. We embrace technology, practical and commercial thinking alongside the application of the law, tactics and common sense. These were the foundations of Edward Hands and Lewis Solicitors. Our goal is to maintain this approach in everything that we do while we build our own new legacy and identity. Our team of lawyers are specialist in their areas. They only practice in their area of law so that they can continue to develop their knowledge and endeavour to be the best in their field. This helps us, as a firm, drive forwards offering excellent, practical advice at competitive prices.
We don’t involve people unnecessarily. Where it is possible for us to do so, we deal with all matters ourselves. However, when we need assistance for a specialist area, we utilise our network of preferred and expert professional contacts. We have forged deep professional relationships with leading firms in New York, Washington DC, to Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Poland. Operating in this way enables us to service our clients from the United States of America to the Channel Islands to Eastern Europe as well as the UK. Our clients are SME businesses with turnovers of between £250,000.00 to £65,000,000.00. We also represent start-up businesses, charities, businesses that are ready to ‘float’ to property developers and professional service providers.
Although we are primarily based in Leicester City Centre, we also have an office in Central London (around 5 minutes from the Royal Courts of Justice).
