  • We are
    Safe and Secure

    Our approach to service continuity during Coronavirus - April 2021

    Further to recent Government announcements and guidance we have implemented our remote working policy, meaning that our offices will be temporarily closed until further notice. We will though continue to remain open for business, deliver the level of service you have come to expect and operate in an effective and secure manner. We are though now able to offer pre-arranged face to face meetings at our offices in exceptional circumstances. We are here to help and support you, so please call or email us in the usual way. Thank you for your understanding

  • We are
    Downs Solicitors

    Trusted legal advisers to individuals, families and businesses since 1836.

    With offices across Surrey, we provide clients with a personal and value for money service wherever they may be located.

     

  • Delicate Situations

    We like to treat each case differently, after all, no two are the same.

    The work our family team does is much more than divorce. We help with pre-nuptial, post-nuptial and co-habitation agreements, children disputes and matters concerning domestic abuse.   

  • We offer sound judgement

    We don’t over-complicate things with legal jargon.

    Marriages between two good people can fail for a number of reasons. Our experienced divorce lawyers will understand the separation outcome a client wants, and help achieve it while being attentive to both timescales and costs. We also provide support to help prepare for life’s next chapter.

  • We are
    here for you 

    Navigating the course of life present both challenges and opportunities.

    The role of a private client lawyer is to protect the interests and assets of clients as they ‘navigate the course of life.’ At Downs Solicitors we have represented generations of the same family as well as working with new clients who are attracted by our friendly and professional approach to client service.  

  • We are
    local

    We are on your doorstep.  

    We are proud about our local heritage. We have offices in Dorking, Godalming and Cobham. Local knowledge counts for a lot when it comes to working with other professionals to achieve successful outcomes for our clients.

What are restrictive covenants and why do I need them?

I own a start-up which grew very quickly and a few years ago I hired in a couple of senior personnel to help run the business. After 5 years, one of these senior hires is now leaving the business and going to a company which isn’t a direct competitor but operates in a very similar field.

An LPA could help protect vulnerable people against bank fraud

Bank fraud is an increasing problem - particularly during the pandemic. It’s difficult enough to navigate new online or remote services that we’re not used to, but if you’re not of sound mind it is even harder. If you are an attorney or deputy responsible for someone who is vulnerable, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself, and them.

What type of Will is best for you

When embarking on having a will prepared, it is tempting and understandable to say that one wants a simple will only because one’s affairs are straightforward and there is nothing that is complicated. That would certainly be the case in many cases, but that may not be the case in others.
