Firm Overview

Devonshires has a reputation for providing high-quality legal services to a diverse range of client sectors including corporate, government, third sector, and private clients.

The foundation of Devonshires’ success is the firm’s focus on its people. 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 250 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 donated well over £40,000. The firm was also awarded Silver and Bronze Awards by the City of London Clean City Awards Scheme.

Principal Areas of Work

From its offices in London, Leeds, and Colchester the firm provides legal services throughout England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Their clients range from some of the world’s largest multinational corporations to private individuals. They act for a significant number of charities, housing associations, and Regulators. The firm describes itself as “full service” with specialists in commercial/corporate, civil litigation, housing, employment, real estate & projects & property development.
