Working in our Taunton office

Clarke Willmott’s history spans across many years and it all started in Taunton over 135 years ago with Charles Peard Clarke.

Taunton is home to some of the firms most long standing clients including Somerset County Cricket Club and one of our Taunton staff members recently celebrated 40 years at the firm!

In 2017 and then again in 2019, we were named ‘Law Firm of the Year’ at the prestigious Devon and Somerset Law Society Legal Awards. We are committed to leading the growth of the region and our legal advice extends to clients across the South West and beyond.

Farming is at the heart of business in Somerset and we are the agricultural lawyers for the South West. Our specialist team can provide the full spectrum of legal services you may need if your business or family is rooted in agriculture, including agri-property, agri-business, agri-disputes and agri-private client.

We have a strong private client practice with our specialist teams in family and divorce law, personal injury, and private capital. Our Private Wealth team are top ranked by Chambers UK (High Net Worth).

Our nationally renowned team of debt recovery experts is based in Taunton and has clients all over the country. The team is ranked in tier one by The Legal 500.

We recently had a transformative and sustainable refurbishment – creating a low carbon environment fit for the new era of hybrid working. Working in the Taunton office, you will be able to benefit from our collaborative spaces to work with your team. Our office space includes a mix of sitting, standing and fixed workstations on the ground and first floor open plan office areas, with laptop workbenches and collaborative spaces to work in a way that best suits you.
