About us


With our offices in Stony Stratford and Woburn we work with businesses and individuals across Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire, taking on problems, fighting corners and delivering winning solutions.

But less about our background, and more about what we can do for you.

How are we different?

Why choose us over a larger, city firm?

We’ve got clout


Our team might be small, but our experience certainly isn’t. We’ve worked in large, small, city and in-house practices, and we partner with a barristers chamber in London to bring you the ultimate legal team.

Nothing fazes us


We’re the best at what we do, and our extensive experience means that we’ve seen it all. No matter what problem, dream or adventure you come to us with, we can help.

We’re fair


We don’t have billing targets, and we certainly don’t bill big for small tasks. Instead, we’re reasonable with fees and fair about our time so you get the best value and experience for your money. 

We’re people people


We get to know you so you feel comfortable being open and honest with us. It’s what drives the best results. 

We want your problems


We take the weight off of your shoulders by taking your problems on and coming back with practical and actionable solutions. 

We’ve got your back


some clients describe us as their armour, while others describe us as their team. Either way, we’re with you every step of the way.

No one wants to use a lawyer, but when you need to, you’ll know who to pick up the phone to.

How we work

We’re a tech-fuelled law firm, meaning that wherever you are, we are.

And we get to know each and everyone one of you – no matter how big or small your problem is. 

Fixed fee consultations

Whatever your legal needs, we’ve got the people, expertise and edge to deliver the winning result.
