We are the second largest law firm in the Midlands. Shakespeares has grown to become one of the region’s leading legal advisers with offices across the East and West Midlands and Home Counties.

Whilst the firm opened in Birmingham in the 1850s and in Leicester in 1768, over the last five years we have undertaken major changes in our approach and investment to ensure we can offer a breadth and depth of legally based solutions.

We are a business that is entirely built around providing you with legal solutions – for your business, or for you. Therefore, everyone in our firm has one of two roles:

  • Serving you – our client

Most of our people are in daily contact with our clients. We aim to recruit and retain the best talent to ensure that you get excellent legal solutions delivered in a professional, friendly, timely and cost effective manner.

  • Or serving those who are serving you – our client

Behind the scenes we are passionate about developing our infrastructure to ensure we can deliver increasingly innovative and cost effective solutions for you. We know that in addition to the law our service levels really matter – from telephone answering to credit control.

We know that if we can deliver you legal excellence and a unique, personalised service we can help you achieve your goals. We also know that if you work with us and succeed, we in turn will have a very successful business – for the long-term.

If you are already a client we really appreciate your trust in us. If you are considering using our services we would be happy to put you in touch with some of our other clients to ensure you get detailed feedback before making this important choice.
