Our experience, your future.


“During the past twelve years my family and I have been most fortunate to have had the very professional help and advice from Mrs. Cate Barnes at your Dorchester office who has acted for us with the purchase and sale of seven properties. We could not have wished for a better person to have helped us.”

Mr G Hill

“Very friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble for them, I was very pleased with the service I was given and will recommend them to friends and family.”

Mr A Crowder

“Fantastic service did just what was needed. Explained everything clearly. I feel we couldn't have been treated any better.”

Mr P Crabbe

“A no-nonsense and supremely practical company that does not have the high overheads of a fully London practice”

“Jen has been brilliant from start to finish. Solicitors often have a reputation of being slow and needing chasing, but not in Jen's case (and Battens as a company)! She was always one step ahead and super diligent. She helped explained things through when the legal elements got a bit over our heads! As stressful as house moves can be, we were very lucky that this process was made to feel relatively seamless thanks to Jen's hard work. We can't thank you enough for that. I would absolutely recommend Battens services because of the experience we have had.”

N. White

“Helpful and efficient in selling our property.”

S Dunning

“I was very happy with the service and advice I received from the Sherborne office both in dealing with the handling of my late sister-in -law's probate application, handling the estate affairs and administrating the sale of my sister-in -law's property.”

P Charman

“Professional & Efficient!

I dealt with Emma and Emily who were both on top of my case and carried out the work of conveyancing very well from start to end to a timely manner. Happy throughout and would recommend the firm for this type of work.”
