Moore Blatch LLP

About us

 

People say we’re different.

Why? Because we believe the most important person in a legal team isn’t the lawyer, it’s you.

So we give you more than other law firms. More expertise. More depth. More clarity.

Whatever you face in life or in business, we won’t be just your lawyer, we’ll be your trusted friend and confidant as well.

Our job is to listen and understand, and then use our expertise to find the best solution for you.

You’ll find we are fast and efficient, with a team based approach and a relentless focus on quality. You’ll also find our prices are competitive, giving you excellent value for money.

If we sound like the sort of law firm you’re looking for, please give our Managing Partner, David Thompson, a call on 023 8071 8037 or email him here.
