After 45 successful years, and in order to better serve the needs of our clients and the organisations we work alongside, the partners of Direction Law have decided to restructure the business.

In place of one law firm which offered a range of services, we have now set up three specialist firms, each offering a narrow range of services, in order to provide clients with a more tailored, bespoke service.

Details of the three firms are shown on this page, just click the relevant logo to be taken to their website.

New clients

Direction Law is no longer taking on any new work. Please, however, click the “Get a Quotation” link to be directed to one of the three new companies who are now undertaking the work that would previously have been carried out by Direction Law.

Existing clients

Until the end of September 2023, Direction Law will continue to complete transactions that were part way through as at the date of our demerger. After that date we will only be dealing with the post-completion formalities of transactions we have completed, including registration at the Land Registry. Due to lengthy delays at the Land Registry this is likely to continue until at least the end of 2025.

Previous clients

If you are a previous client who would like to use us on a new matter, then please follow the procedure for new clients. If you would like any information regarding an archived file then please Contact us with your enquiry and we will be pleased to assist.
