Welcome to Devonshires

A law firm with personality

Solution driven legal services

Recognised as industry leaders, we have a deep understanding of the diverse sectors we work in.

Our roots started in social housing and have successfully expanded to representing large banks and financial institutions, international and national companies (from start-ups to some of the largest), insurance underwriters and brokers, regulators, insolvency practitioners, professional service providers, politicians, individuals, and you, we hope.

Central to our ethos is understanding our clients’ culture, aims, and aspirations. We will provide solution-driven services to you through clearly structured, practical and commercially focused advice – we will not simply provide legal advice on a topic without setting out the context in which it applies to you.

We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves and take on difficult matters. We have made new laws on behalf of Army Veterans, Regulators, and Social Housing Clients on many occasions to deliver successful outcomes.
