Our legal services for individuals and families
Whether you are buying or selling a home, leasing, remortgaging or taking part in any other type of residential property transaction, we can help. Our highly experienced residential conveyancing solicitors can ensure that the process runs smoothly, cost-effectively and on schedule. We will keep you protected both legally and financially during the transaction and ensure that you aren’t hit by any nasty surprises after the deal is done.
Court of Protection
If a relative lacks the capacity to make key decisions about their own affairs, including managing their finances and deciding on medical care, becoming a Court of Protection deputy can allow you to manage their affairs for them. We can help you apply to become a deputy, raise concerns if you believe an existing Court of Protection deputy is abusing their position or deal with any other issues related to Court of Protection law.
Legal disputes can take up a lot of time, money and energy to deal with, as well as being a distraction from the things you would rather be concentrating on. Our dispute resolution solicitors can help you solve disputes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, often without the need for court action. This can save you time, money and stress, as well as helping to preserve important relationships.
Divorce & Separation
When a marriage, civil partnership or other relationship ends, there are often a number of important issues to resolve. Our divorce solicitors can help you with every aspect of ending your relationship, including dealing with the legal process, such as divorce petitions, as well as reaching a financial settlement and making arrangements for children.
Our employment lawyers can help you deal with a wide range of issues relating to your rights as an employee, including making claims for unfair dismissal, harassment and discrimination. We also have a high level of expertise in accident at work claims. We can also assist you with Employment Tribunals and Early Conciliation, helping you to achieve a fair outcome as quickly as possible.
Our family law solicitors offer a comprehensive legal service for families, including all issues related to marriage, civil partnerships, cohabitation and children. We regularly assist couples and families with cohabitation agreements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, arrangements for children and many other key legal issues.
Our highly experienced immigration lawyers cover all areas of immigration law, including employment rights, human rights and EU immigration. We have particular expertise in complex immigration applications for clients working in a wide range of sectors, including engineering, further education, food, construction and care work.
If you have been injured due to a mistake made by a doctor or other medical staff, we can help you get the compensation you deserve. Late diagnosis, misdiagnosis and negligent care can all have a serious impact on your quality of life, so we want to ensure that you achieve a fair outcome. We offer a free initial assessment and frequently represent clients on a no win, no fee basis.
Our notary public service allows you to have documents and transactions prepared, validated and/or certified for use abroad. This can be essential for making sure that foreign governments and official bodies accept the legal validity of your key documents, including powers of attorney, sale and purchase agreements for overseas property and other assets, as well as copies of passports and other identity documents.
We offer a comprehensive personal injury service for claims ranging from car accidents, criminal injury, back injury, fatal accidents and more. Our personal injury solicitors make achieving fair compensation as easy and stress-free as possible for any injury that was not your fault.
Chattertons Trustee Corporation can professionally administer trusts and estates for you, as well as acting as a Court of Protection deputy and attorney. We can ensure your trust or estate is appropriately handled, help you with any difficult decisions and offer a seamless and continuous service so that your interests and those of your loved ones stay protected at all times.
Wealth Management Services
Our in-house financial services department offers a complete wealth management service for areas including investments, inheritance tax planning, pensions and retirement planning.
