CLIENTS Clients commend the firm for its traditional approach and for its strong commitment to looking after their best interests. Its solicitors are described as highly approachable; excellent, brilliant, with very careful attention to details and the ability to take away the fear of the unknown.
Famously known as Lawyers for the Countryside, Arnold Thomson provides expert legal advice and skillful guidance to farmers, landowners, private clients and commercial property clients. Although a fair percentage of the firm’s clients are local to the Towcester and Market Harborough offices, Arnold Thomson also provides nationwide coverage, visiting clients on their farms and at their commercial sites around the country, when required. There is a fair degree of overlap within the firm’s areas of expertise where many of its commercial clients are also in need of private client services and many of its agricultural clients who are landowners are represented by the firm’s commercial property experts.
The firm is unable to name any of its clients as many of them are very conservative and they would prefer to keep their identities confidential.
