Personal Services, Solicitors in Gloucester

If you’re buying or selling property, you want a residential conveyancing team who really know the local market and can guide you through any risks and uncertainty. Our conveyancing solicitors have been looking after the Gloucestershire community for a number of years, meaning we not only have an extensive knowledge of all areas of conveyancing, but we know the unique property market profile of Gloucester like the back of our hand.

We help a diverse range of clients, from those looking to buy for the first time, to those wanting to remortgage or add to their buy-to-let portfolio. Our Solicitors offer specialist services in all manners of conveyancing, including freeholds and leaseholds, shared ownership, equity transfers and releases, new builds, cohabitation issues, rentals and live-in landlord information.

Disagreements are a natural part of life. More often than not, the disagreements may be small and we can work through conflict ourselves. For bigger issues, or when differences can’t be reconciled, it may be necessary to seek legal intervention.

Our team of solicitors in Gloucester specialise in resolving legal disputes that arise out of consumer contracts, land and property, and wills and probate. Our approach is to explore all avenues of reconciliation, primarily focusing on Alternative Dispute Resolution processes such as mediation, conciliation or negotiation. In the instance that matters cannot be settled outside of court, we offer full representation through adjudicative processes like arbitration or litigation.

Our goal is to foster a process that allows both parties to be fully heard, all options to be considered, and for a fair outcome to be achieved that is in the best interests of everyone involved.

Separation is a difficult process for couples to go through, often compounded by the involvement of children. Our Gloucestershire solicitors offer an understanding and personal approach to divorce and relationship changes, whilst ensuring your interests are fully protected.

We are committed to achieving mutually agreeable outcomes in the most efficient and least stressful way, out of court. However if it is not possible to reach an understanding, our divorce lawyers can offer full representation in court. We’ll work alongside you through each step, from preparing and filing divorce papers, to working out child custody and financial arrangements. Our services can be offered as part of a fixed fee divorce package with no hidden costs, or charged at an hourly rate.  

We also understand that you may want to protect your assets moving into a new relationship. Whilst the strength of the relationship is your first priority, a prenuptial arrangement can offer peace of mind and a legal avenue to safeguard equity.

Your employer has a duty of care to ensure your health and safety at work, your employee rights are protected, and that any grievances are dealt with promptly and fairly. If you feel your employer is not meeting those obligations, you should seek legal advice.

Our employment law specialists have a wealth of knowledge in all work-related issues, and have a comprehensive understanding of concerns most experienced by members of the Gloucester community. Some of the matters our clients seek advice on include:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Detriment claims
  • Employment contracts
  • Breach of contract
  • Redundancy
  • All types of discrimination
  • Equal pay
  • Unlawful deduction of wages
  • TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations)
  • Maternity, paternity and parental issues

Your right to a workplace free of discrimination, to fair and equal pay, and to have your grievances addressed are protected under the Employment Act 2002. We take your concerns seriously and will work with you to ensure you’re being heard and any problems are adequately rectified. We can suggest early conciliation and mediation, or can take your claim to the Employment Tribunal.

We take a number of risks every day, even in some of the most commonplace things we do. You shouldn’t be expected to suffer a loss in your quality of life, though, if a risk wasn’t properly managed or a freak accident has left you in pain. You could be entitled to damages if you’ve suffered an injury that has significantly impacted your health, left you handicapped, unable to work, or has even resulted in the death of a loved one. This could have been the result of a road accident, sporting incident, work event, clinical negligence, faulty product, or a range of circumstances in between.

If you have suffered harm as a result of negligent advice, you could be entitled to compensation.

We often rely on the advice of professionals to help us mitigate risks and make important decisions, whether we’re seeking expertise from financial advisors, surveyors or even solicitors. In their guidance and judgement, professionals have a duty of care to give clients accurate advice. When they have failed in that duty, the consequences can be significant.

If you’ve experienced loss due to professional negligence, we can help you prove liability against that party and work with you to claim damages.

Unfortunately, death is part of the natural cycle of life. By helping to prepare for our own deaths or the passing of a loved one, we can have certainty in how assets and wealth will be protected and handled after we’re gone. Our team are highly experienced in all areas of Wills and Probate, and have been helping the Gloucestershire community plan early to safeguard against the uncertainty of the future.

One of the common areas we support people in is writing a Will. There are a number of benefits for making a Will today, rather than leaving it to chance, including having a say in how your estate and assets will be distributed, and who will be responsible for its administration; what will happen to your children if you were to die unexpectedly; inheritance tax savings; and protection for couples who may not be married or have entered into a civil partnership. Wills can also help to prevent family disputes by ensuring wishes are clearly expressed. 

We also support people to create a Living Will – also known as an Advance Decision, which can be accompanied by an Advance Statement. Living Wills give people the ability to exercise choice and control in terms of care and treatment options should anything happen during their lifetime. Some people may also choose to appoint someone as a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare. We can help explain the effect of these decisions, including how the order of creation will impact on which decision will be taken as final.  

Separate to this, we can give you advice on appointing someone to have Powers of Attorney over your affairs. People with Powers of Attorney will be able make decisions about your personal welfare, finances and property matters.

Even if you have a Will in place, in the event of your death the executor will still need to apply for Probate to be able to start processing the wishes set out in your Will. Probate may also be known as a grant of probate, grant of representation, letters of administration, or letters of administration with a Will. Our qualified team can apply for Probate on behalf of the person who will administer the estate, which will allow them access to your bank account and to collect estate assets.

Finding the right premises for your business will be one of the most important decisions you make as a business owner or manager.

We offer commercial property legal services to help you secure a business property, whether you’re looking to buy or lease, so that you can get back to focusing on the business.

We promote early conciliation and mediation to settle disputes and help avoid lengthy employment tribunal claims. If a disgruntled employee does pursue a claim, we can defend the business and focus on resolving matters swiftly.

  • Redundancy
  • All types of discrimination
  • Maternity, paternity and parental issues
  • TUPE
  • Equal pay
  • Detriment claims
  • Unlawful deduction of wages
  • Breach of contract

We have a number of years of experience in taking a tough stance against professional negligence for the Gloucester business community. If your business has suffered loss or damage as a result of inadequate and negligent advice, you could be entitled to compensation.

We understand that key business decisions are often informed by the professional advice of others. Those professionals and experts have a duty of care to provide accurate and well-founded advice based on their experience and expert knowledge. Businesses can experience significant repercussions and long-term damage when serious operational breaches have occurred as a result of following bad advice.

Our team can advise you on whether you can establish liability against the third party and if you will be able to successfully show damages as a result of their negligence. We can represent you through Alternative Dispute Resolution processes if appropriate, or take your claim to court.
