A legal team you can trust to represent you

When you need legal representation from a solicitors firm, it’s important to look at their skills, experience and track record of success.

It’s equally crucial for you to gain an understanding of their approach to business and how they will work with you to protect your interests.

At Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates Ltd, we take the time to get to know your own particular circumstances so that we are in the best possible position to provide you with effective, plain-spoken and jargon free legal advice.

'We believe in providing our clients with great customer service, and that means being accessible, responsive and available to offer legal advice when you need it.'

Our team has over 30 years of experience in heavyweight commercial law and litigation both in London and Lancashire, as well as expertise in dispute resolution, family law, employment law and personal injury cases.

We can help you with financial or consumer disputes, including business services or contract disagreements, wills and probate, land and property, boundary and planning, landlord and tenant, workplace litigation and commercial or personal disputes with service providers.
