Battens Solicitors Limited is a full-service civil law firm offering specialist and therefore high quality legal advice to clients in the South West and London.

Our aim is to provide a personal service which is practical, understandable and reasonably priced. We appreciate how important it is to understand the needs of our clients and to establish long-standing relationships and as a result have many clients who return to us over and over again.

We recognise that clients' needs often encompass more than one legal discipline and the ability to refer to other specialists within Battens ensures our clients receive a comprehensive service.

In the digital age all of us can be located almost anywhere in the world and our IT systems and work practises certainly reflect this. However, we are very proud of our local roots and our local connections and we encourage all our staff to get involved in the local community. Battens Solicitors Limited and our charitable trust continually support local charities, which we feel anchors us amongst our clients.

Compliance is hugely important to us and so we are early-adopters of all the fundamental quality schemes which govern the legal market. We seldom trumpet this, as we feel that clients would simply expect this of us.

We are proud of the fact that a significant proportion of our staff have worked for us for many years and a sizeable number of our lawyers actually trained with the firm and stayed after becoming qualified. This suggests that overall we are getting a number of key elements right: work: life balance; flexible working hours, operating culture and working environment, to name but a few. It may also suggest that our employment packages are attractive and competitive; we certainly hope that this is the case.
