Welcome to Devonshires

We are a law firm with personality

We provide forward thinking legal services to our clients, who range from some of the world’s largest multinational corporations to private individuals. We also act for a significant number of charities, Registered Providers and Regulators. Our 175 year history has shaped Devonshires Solicitors in to one of the UK’s leading full service law firms. We group our work into 16 Core Strengths from Housing Management to Private Client – just click on the pictures below to find out more.

The basis of our success is the quality of our people. All 206 of them. Many are recognised as leaders in their chosen specialisms but all are highly skilled at what they do. All have distinct personalities. There is no Devonshires identikit lawyer. But all have a shared objective – which is to provide down to earth, practical and, above all, understandable advice and assistance which helps our clients achieve and exceed their goals.

Our work is primarily based in England, Wales and Northern Ireland but our lawyers occasionally venture further afield – Australia for example, even Scotland sometimes. All our people are based at our City of London office just next to Liverpool Street. Being centrally located makes it easy for us to get out to see our clients. We can be in Cardiff in just over two hours, Newcastle in just under three and Bermondsey in 20 minutes (if the traffic’s not bad).

We are particularly proud of our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. Our partners, staff, clients and charities continue to demonstrate goodwill, generosity and dedication to the CSR schemes that we operate. Last year 40% of our partners and staff volunteered to give up their time to support our chosen charities and we raised well over £40,000.
