With over 150 years of legal expertise, Fraser Dawbarns is bringing a complete range of professional services to Ely Business Park this Spring.
The solicitors Fraser Dawbarns LLP are pleased to announce that they will be opening an office on the Cambridgeshire Business Park in Ely this Spring. They will be bringing with them the range of legal expertise and the client-focused approach which has made them one of the most successful and highly regarded firms in West Norfolk and North Cambridgeshire.
Fraser Dawbarns is a firm which has advised families and businesses for generations. Its experience means it understands the needs and concerns of its clients and prides itself on providing high quality legal advice in a straightforward manner that clients understand and puts them at ease.
Managing Partner Melinda Smith says “We are very excited at having the opportunity to become more directly involved with residents and businesses of Ely and the surrounding areas. We have been fortunate enough to have been included in various events which have taken place in Ely in the last year or so and are looking forward to becoming part of such a diverse and rapidly expanding community.”
Fraser Dawbarns traces its history back to 1842 when James Edward Fraser opened his law firm. Dawbarns started practising in 1885 and the two solicitors merged in 2008, shortly followed by another merger with Waterman Cheetham. Under a single banner, the three firms gained the capacity of a large firm but with the care and feel typically associated with smaller high-street solicitors.
The 2017 Legal 500 review of the top legal firms in the country considers Fraser Dawbarns to be a ‘Leading Firm’ in seven practice areas including ‘Commercial Property’ and ‘Corporate and Commercial’ law. Fraser Dawbarns regularly feature in this review.
Their large Commercial team has wide ranging expertise encompassing the legal needs of partnerships and small businesses to multi-million pound acquisitions and renewable energy projects together with an agricultural team that assists their farming clients on issues ranging from acquisitions to succession planning.
As well as providing legal services for businesses, Fraser Dawbarns has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in providing legal services for individuals with a high quality Residential Conveyancing department that offers a fixed-fee service designed to minimise the stress of buying your house, a Family Law department that advises on divorce, children and financial matters but also on post and prenuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements.
The Probate department offers a comprehensive range of advice on Wills and Estates as well as Trusts, elderly care, Court of Protection matters and lifetime planning and the Civil law team is comprised of talented litigators that have frequently exceeded the expectations of both their private and commercial clients.
Fraser Dawbarns are happy to discuss any issues that are affecting you, your family or your business before their Ely office opens.
