Wollen Michelmore SOLICITORS


WOLLEN MICHELMORE HAVE CONTRIBUTED A LEGAL COLUMN IN BY THE DART FOR MUCH OF THE PAST 9-10 YEARS. A WIDE RANGE OF LEGAL TOPICS HAS BEEN COVERED.


BUT THE AUTHORS HAVE ALSO GONE THROUGH MAJOR CHANGE IN THAT PERIOD WITH SUBSTANTIAL GROWTH IN THE BUSINESS IN RECENT YEARS.


Clive Meredith


What has changed in your business over the past 10 years? We’ve seen huge growth in the business having quadrupled in size in that period. It probably started 9 years ago when we first merged with Courtney Richards bringing the Paignton and Dartmouth offices into our orbit and then again in 2011 when we merged with Harold Michelmore, which gave us the office in Newton Abbot. We’ve just this year added to the list through our merger with Morgan & Pope so that we now have an office in Exeter. With our main office here in Torquay and a small office in Barnstaple, we now enjoy considerable coverage of Devon. We have 150 members of staff, 14 partners and billings of over £8m making us the 5th largest law firm in the South West.


In recent years, your business

appears to have been showered with awards? Yes, we are very proud that in 2017, the firm was successful in securing two national awards. In May, at the Solicitors Journal awards held in London, the firm was honoured to be awarded Family Team of the Year and, in October at the Law Society’s 2017 Excellence Awards, the Private Client team won the Excellence in Private Client Practice award. In 2018 we have been shortlisted in the Devon and Somerset Law Society’s Legal Awards in the Law Firm (11+ Partners) of the Year Award category.
