About Turners Solicitors LLP

Our Business Values

We have a long history of building strong professional relationships with our clients; delivering traditional service with core professional values that our clients understand and respect.

We believe that contrary to current thinking Law cannot be commoditised. Conveyances will never be cans of beans, matters of business and professional advice will never sit neatly into just one carrier bag.

At Turners we believe in the provision of professional legal advice to clients by professionally trained Solicitors and FILEX qualified members. Selling “legal services” to “customers or consumers” by para legals is likely to devalue the profession, increase complaints and claims and will debase the profession to the lowest common denominator.  

Only true professional private practice will continue to have the trust of its clients where large sums of money and matters truly important to clients remain.

The Members (or Partners as they were once referred to) are committed to operating a modern, compliant and profitable legal services business with core professional values that our clients understand and respect.

This may not be seen as cutting edge or adventurous, it is certainly not awe inspiring but prudence and good management have seen the firm weather the longest recession since the 30's in circumstances where others claiming to be enlightened have taken their practices to collapse and financial ruin.
