A leading law firm has acquired a competitor and vowed to strengthen the legal services provided to the West Wickham community.

Amphlett Lissimore said the acquisition of Allen Barfields has reinforced its commitment to deliver the very best advice to clients, and believes individuals will benefit from the best legal expertise, provided by solicitors who have the local knowledge to understand the community.

The takeover will bring a more modern approach to the West Wickham practice, offering greater resources, the use of the latest technology and access to specialist advice.

Amphlett Lissimore added it was also keen to eliminate the fear factor of contacting a solicitor.

Managing partner Frank Lissimore said: “We made the acquisition because nowadays bigger usually means providing a better service.

“Gone are the days where specialist legal practices are on every street, specialising in just one area.

“Small individual practices are no longer sustainable and being a larger firm means we can offer a better service to the community while keeping the accessibility on the high street.”

Amphlett Lissimore – part of the QualitySolicitors group – is a ninety-strong team of specialist lawyers with a wealth of expertise in all legal matters.

The West Wickham branch will focus on providing excellence in family matters, wills, power of attorney, residential conveyancing, site acquisitions, estate management and litigation.

The majority of Allen Barfields’ existing staff will remain at the office in Station Road.

Nigel Leonard, who has been at the office since 1981, said: “We have a long-established and good relationship with the local community and businesses.

“We are your family solicitor for all your legal needs.”

Ian Miller, who joined a year later, added: “Many of our loyal clients have been with us for many years because they know us and we know them.

“During that time, we have become their trusted friends who have their best interests at heart.”

Mr Lissimore is also keen to dispel the public’s misconceptions about solicitors.

He said: “A lot of people are fearful of speaking to lawyers and believe they will be charged a lot of money.

“But we want to change that. We are here to help.”
