Why Us?

Saunders & Co

Many good law firms already provide a quality, timely and professional service at a fair price. At Saunders & Co we take this as a “given”. Whilst we certainly value these attributes, our aim is to provide you with a service that will leave you more than just satisfied.

How are we able to do this?


We are lawyers with engaging personalities, natural at focussing on relationship-building both on a professional and social level. We recognise individuality and we have a broad range of personalities to match our clients.


We have the optimal experience mix to suit your requirements – senior lawyers offering wisdom and know-how, matched with younger lawyers accustomed to innovation and a can-do attitude.

Practical Advice

Theory can often be a far cry from commercial reality. We are real-world lawyers offering practical solutions that will work for you.


We insist on professional excellence across the firm. Simply put, we know our stuff and embrace a “learning for life” philosophy.

Service Range

Many issues are multi-faceted and we can ensure you have all the bases covered with a comprehensive in-house approach that smaller or specialised firms can not offer.


Partner or graduate lawyer, it makes no difference to us. Whilst we do have lives outside of work, we pride ourselves on being available to you as much as possible, and giving you maximum choice in choosing how to communicate with us.

We listen

Despite our very best efforts, we recognise there is always room for improvement. Your feedback is invaluable to us maintaining our service standards and we welcome all comments and suggestions, complimentary or otherwise.

If this sounds like the type of law firm you want, you are in the right place. For immediate assistance, contact us.
