About Us

We are one of the leading law firms in Devon with offices in Torquay, Dartmouth, Newton Abbot and Barnstaple. We have a love for Devon, as well as a passion for the work we do.

We’ve been serving the Devon legal community for the last 150 years and during the last decade we’ve grown significantly. We have 4 offices that stretch from coast to coast in Devon and we employ 140 staff.

The service we offer has been recognised externally and in 2017 the firm has been nationally acclaimed on two occasions.  In October the Law Society’s prestigious Excellence Awards took place at the Hilton, Park Lane in London where our Private Client team were awarded the Excellence in Private Client Practice award distinguishing the team as England and Wales’s industry best. The firm was also shortlisted for Excellence in Law Management and Wollen Michelmore Partner, Rachel Carter, was shortlisted in the Solicitor of the Year – Private Practice category. 

In May the firm was shortlisted in three categories at the Solicitors Journal awards held in London: Private Client Team; Legal Aid Team and Family Team, the firm were honoured to be awarded Family Team of the Year.

In 2016 we received several regional and national awards. The Devon and Somerset Law Society awarded us; Client Service of the Year; Rachel Carter won Solicitor of the Year and Chris Hart, Chief Executive, was presented with Leader/Law Manager of the Year. In the same year we were Highly Commended by the Law Society in the category of Marketing and Communications.

But it’s not just about winning awards, or expanding our brand. It’s about harmony and lasting connections. It’s about working with you in the community, it’s about helping protecting, fighting, and serving you. It’s about being known here in Devon as Devon’s own.
