The Firm
Devonshires is a leading UK firm providing high quality, value for money services to corporate, government, third sector and private clients with its core strengths being in housing, development, commercial litigation, clinical negligence, care and work for regulators such as the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Regulator of Social Housing. The foundation of Devonshires’ success is the firm’s focus on people — both its clients and its own. Many of the firm’s lawyers are recognised as leaders in their chosen specialisms and are all highly skilled at what they do, with distinct personalities. There is no Devonshires identikit lawyer, yet all have a shared objective: to provide down to earth, practical and above all, understandable advice and assistance to help clients achieve and exceed their goals.

Many clients see the firm as their go-to solicitors when they need a practical, business savvy and responsive service in their core area of work. With over 240 staff, 3 offices and around 1,500 clients the firm has more bases covered than one might at first think.

Devonshires is committed to delivering its services in a socially responsible way. Its partners, staff, clients, and charities continue to demonstrate goodwill, generosity and dedication to the Corporate Social Responsibility schemes that it operates. Last year over 40% of partners and staff volunteered to give up their time to support their four chosen charities and raised well over £40,000. The firm was also re-awarded the Gold Clean City Award with special commendation by the City of London Clean City Awards Scheme.

PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK
One of the firm’s strengths is the breadth of its practice, including specialisms in: care; corporates; finance; public services; regulation; and social housing.
