Clarke Willmott LLP is a national law firm with over 500 lawyers and support staff (including over 85 partners) working from offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton. The firm was established in the South West in 1888 and we are proud of our strong heritage. Recognising that our clients prefer working with lawyers who understand the climate in which they operate and how their business actually works day-to-day, we decided a number of years ago, to adopt a sector-led approach. The success of such a strategy can be evidenced by our reputation in a number of key industry areas. These include our 100-strong Real Estate and Construction group, nationally-renowned 40-strong Social Housing group, and specialist Retail group – as well as leading teams advising on Renewable Energy, Agriculture, Sport and Private Client. We are focussed on client service – we invest time in developing strong relationships with our clients in order to add value and achieve positive results. We have been awarded The Law Society’s Lexcel quality mark in recognition of our compliance and client care standards. Working closely with the local communities in which we operate is important to Clarke Willmott LLP. Our active Corporate Social Responsibility policy encourages our staff to give something back through volunteering, fundraising and pro-bono work. As a member of the Legal Sector Alliance, we are also strongly committed to reducing our carbon footprint through investing in greener ways to do business.
