Lightfoots Solicitors

At Lightfoots we have tackled the challenges of 2020 and come out stronger, more diverse and more agile. Success in 2020 has included winning several clients and handling a greater number of instructions, and business generally, than at the beginning of lockdown. We even have a bigger team which is not something anyone could have expected back in March!

The firm as a whole has flourished but our conveyancing team have been superhuman. They have managed unprecedented demand triggered by lockdown and the Stamp Duty holiday, been highly adaptable to changing working arrangements and have continued to give the very best client service.

We’ve been in business for over 150 years providing conveyancing and other traditional services, and for the past 30 years we have provided a range of services to lenders including conveyancing, mortgage registration, bridging finance and litigation. Our focus for the past decade has been on the origination side and we are now principal advisors to a number of lenders and feature on panels for most dominating the lending sector.

Our commercial clients receive practical, well-presented and solution-focussed advice. We take the time to understand both the market and our clients’ own business models so that we can help them maintain the very best customer service levels.
