Our Story

Like many law firms, we started out operating as a traditional solicitors’ partnership. While this trusty and well-respected model worked in the past, by listening to our customers and putting them first, we realised it worked more for the law firm’s convenience than anyone else’s.

We wanted to do more for our local community, our clients and our teams, as they had already invested so much in us.

It was time for a change.

So we switched to a contemporary, client-first approach and never looked back.

Slowly but surely, we changed how we did things to add more value to our work. We stopped using complicated legal phrases and started explaining things in plain English. We introduced fair and transparent fees and designed worry-free guarantees. We are committed to keeping our customers in the loop, no matter how long or short the legal process is for them (which can rarely be predicted accurately in advance).

Where We Are Now

We make time for no-obligation chats and are open to the idea of video calls. We have improved our team benefits package to include both serious support and fun perks. We are now part of many local initiatives, donating to good causes and connecting with our community on a much deeper level.

In fact, we’re still not done making changes — and will likely never be. Our team of talented solicitors is constantly evolving and thinking of new ways to make our services the best they can be. That’s why our clients always choose us.

One thing will stay the same, though, and that’s our philosophy. We believe speaking to a solicitor should be a straightforward affair, especially when it’s personal.

Personal Legal Services, as They Should Be

productive team meeting

Personal legal services are, by definition, personal. They serve people in some of life’s biggest moments, like moving home or settling important family matters after the death of a loved one. And things like drawing up a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney give us peace of mind for whatever life brings. So, why do most personal legal services feel so impersonal, so clinical — and so painfully difficult to understand?

We realised most law firms were all making the same mistake — they were spending too much time trying to impress their clients and not enough time reassuring them.

Instead of big words and clunky phrases, we believe solicitors would do better to explain legal concepts in plain English to their clients, especially when that person is likely experiencing stress, anxiety and worry.

That’s why at Lockings, we make speaking to a solicitor simple. Our clients don’t reluctantly put their faith in lawyers they don’t understand. Instead, they confidently rely on solicitors who share their entire legal process. This way, our clients feel both impressed and reassured by the legal support they receive.
