Staines law firm leaves Quality Solicitors brand
One of Staines oldest law firms has left the national network QualitySolicitors brand to ‘concentrate on building its local reputation.’
Dale and Newbery, which has a staff of 25 in the town on the edge of the M25 and close to Heathrow, said they have appreciated their time as part of QualitySolicitors’ but the partners concluded that being part of a national brand was not what we were about.
Our strength lies in the reputation and goodwill that we have built up as a local firm looking after the interests of local people and local businesses. That is where our strength lies and that is what we want to emphasise and promote to our loyal client base.
The 104-year-old firm, based in Clarence Street in the town, covers a wide variety of work with their solicitors specialising in wills, probate and trusts, conveyancing and company and commercial matters, family law and all types of litigation including employment law, personal injury claims, clinical negligence and contested probate.
Sharon Pegler, Senior Partner, said in a statement: “Joining QualitySolicitors in 2011 was the right move to make at the time. Then, the High Street solicitor was under great threat from changes in legislation and smaller law firms were also having to face the challenges of competing against the large household names which were moving into the provision of legal services”.
“Being part of QualitySolicitors meant we were able to gain a different perspective which has helped prepare us for the different legal landscape in which High Street solicitors firms now find themselves”
The firm will now look to emphasise its local roots in Staines.
“First and foremost we are a Staines based firm with a strong history in the town and locally and this is where our focus will be.” she added.
She added: ‘Leaving QualitySolicitors allows us to focus the direction of the firm on our loyal clientele and the needs of the local community.’
