Our Story

Like many law firms in England, we started operating as a traditional solicitors partnership. While this trusty and well-respected model worked in our favour for a short while, we quickly realised how its foundations were flawed.

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

It was time for a change.

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

Slowly but surely, we changed the way 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 committed to keeping our customers in the loop, no matter how long the legal process. We made time for no-obligation chats and opened up to the idea of video calls. We improved our employee benefits package to include both serious support and fun perks for our team. We joined local initiatives, donated to close causes and connected on a much deeper level with our community.

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

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 buying a home, settling important family matters, and when the time comes, drawing up a will. So, why do most personal legal services in the UK feel so impersonal, so clinical and so painfully difficult to understand?

We realised most law firms in England 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, UK lawyers 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 attorneys they don’t understand. Instead, they confidently rely on lawyers who share their entire legal process. This way, our clients feel both impressed and reassured by the legal support they receive.
