WHO WE ARE
Summerfield Browne Solicitors are commercial and private client solicitors authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. We are a modern and progressive law firm, and operate a new legal services business model, which significantly reduces our overheads, and which means we can transfer the benefit of those cost savings back to our customers, in the form of competitive fee rates.
What sets us apart from many other corporate solicitors and private client solicitors, is that we deliver legal services using a business model that utilises the best aspects of the traditional law firm, but which also incorporates a flexible consultancy based legal services model. This means that many of our business solicitors, and private client lawyers are consultants, who work remotely at various locations in England, and by using the latest IT technology they can service our clients anywhere in England and Wales. Our business model means that clients have the option of choosing either, remote delivery of legal services which is simple, effective and cost efficient, or alternatively, the more traditional delivery of legal services via meetings in person at either, our serviced offices, or at the client's business premises.
With the exception of our administrative headquarters, we only use serviced offices for basic needs, such as telephone answering and mail receipt. Any additional fees for meetings are only incurred on an "as and when" used basis, which means that we do not incur many of the significant property overheads, which are incurred by other more traditional law firms.
We have a team of highly experienced lawyers who have all either, worked for leading law firms, or held senior positions in law firms. Please browse our team by visiting our Team page.
