Southampton Office

    Solicitors in Southampton

    Following Dutton Gregory's merger with Page Gulliford & Gregory in April 2018, a long established law firm based in Cumberland Place, Southampton, we continue to offer first class client service and expertise from within the heart of the city centre.

    Recognised nationally for our ability to resolve all manner of legal issues with ease, it’s no wonder that we were proud winners of the Law Society’s Large Law Firm of the Year award in 2016 (and were runners up in the same category in 2017 and 2019). With an impressive track record for achieving a favourable outcome for our clients within a reasonable timeframe, we’re always looking to improve on efficiency. We know that most legal issues can’t be resolved overnight, and while we will never cut corners; we will never let a case drag out longer than it has to.

    Both businesses and individuals benefit from the service provided by our solicitors in Southampton, be it a property transaction, a commercial dispute or an injury claim. Upon our initial meeting, you will leave with an in-depth understanding of your legal position and the options you have in proceeding. We know that when clients instruct us, it’s because they need advice and guidance to get them from A to B. That’s why the advice we provide is always delivered in plain jargon-free English, and if you have any questions or concerns, we will answer them as promptly as possible.

    As well as the quality of our legal advice, Dutton Gregory enjoy a reputation for excellent communication. When you need us the most, we’ll be there. Similarly, we will keep you updated with each new development in your case as soon as we know. Whatever your issue, we are here for you.
