Beviss & Beckingsale is a traditional long-established yet progressive firm of solicitors with four offices based in East Devon and South Somerset but serving clients across the country.
We provide a wide range of specialised quality services for both private and business clients. Priding ourselves on the personal service we give to our clients the partners do not subscribe to the principle that 'big is beautiful'. We want our clients to feel welcome and confident that their legal affairs will be dealt with in a thoroughly businesslike, competent and prompt manner.
We believe that for our clients to receive the best advice, we need to employ the best lawyers and support staff, backed up by the latest information technology. Our recruitment programme and in-house training ensure that all our staff appreciate the importance of building close working relationships with clients, providing cost effective, timely and practical advice and of understanding our clients' individual businesses and objectives. This is how we achieve the results that our clients expect.
We pride ourselves on the personal service we give to clients. As more and more commercial organisations depart from that ethos we consider it to be increasingly important.
We can help with the following areas of law:-
Buying and selling your home represents the most important type of transaction (and the most expensive!) that you are likely to undertake in your life.
Furthermore, where you choose to live has a profound effect on your lifestyle, whilst for some it also represents an investment opportunity.
This makes it extremely important to entrust your purchase or sale to an independent firm of solicitors who only have your interests at heart, who take care of all the legal processes, giving you a full explanation of all the law affecting you, the likely costs involved, and thereby smooth the process from beginning to end.
Wills Trust and Probate
We have a strong centralised department primarily based in our Chard office and they are able to assist with
• The creation and administration of estates & trusts
• Tax planning
• Powers of attorney
Many of our clients ask us if it is necessary to make a Will. It is a sad fact that most people die without making a Will. For them, the law dictates how and to where their estates will be divided and this may lead to results which they would not have wished. It may also cause problems for dependents which are often costly and time consuming to resolve. The easy and quick solution is to make a will.
We appreciate that the breakdown of family relationships can be painful and emotional. It is our aim to provide a family law service that is sympathetic and sensitive yet objective and positive
