Welcome to Clarke Willmott, Southampton

We’ve been working from Southampton since 2001 and we have over 85 staff, including 14 partners. Some of our team are in their first year at Clarke Willmott, others are in their thirtieth. We like the balance; it allows us to offer our clients a proven combination of experience and new, innovative ways of thinking.

The spectrum of services we offer is broad and many of our clients draw on our expertise for all of their legal needs. It makes for a concise and harmonic way of working where, by understanding the bigger picture, we can provide the best possible legal advice.

We work with businesses and individuals throughout the surrounding areas, including more than 25 Solent 250 companies, and our out of town location helps us stay to flexible.

Our Southampton office services

When it comes to commercial law, we specialise in retail and support a number of prominent brands. Clarke Willmott’s business tax specialist is based in Southampton and we also have our own notary public.

We have one of the largest commercial property teams in the region and our clients include developers, investors, retailers, lending institutions and local authorities. Our team of social housing lawyers works closely with our London office and specialises in both development and management.

On the private client side, we have specialist teams in personal injury, serious injury and medical negligence.

Our work in the community

Our chosen office charity is The Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity. As an office, our corporate social responsibility is important to us and we raise money through bake sales, holding fundraising events, and by offering our support by attending their events. These have included supermarket bag packs, quiz nights and charity balls.

The more active approaches our staff have taken to raise money for the hospice include sponsored 10K’s and half marathons, swimming from the Isle of Wight to Portsmouth, and trekking the Indian Himalayas.
