We’re a Central London law firm – with an international reach – specialising in personal, property and commercial legal matters.
We are passionate about providing successful outcomes for our clients. Our promise to you is to offer the very best legal advice and to consistently exceed your expectations.
We believe a good solicitor is approachable, innovative and open – one who listens to you and helps identify attainable goals and the best strategy to reach them.
Our people will go out of their way to ensure:
We value our clients and always put them first. We listen carefully to what you require from your lawyer and the outcome you are trying to achieve and customise our advice to your needs.
We take a ‘one firm’ approach, where all our legal teams work closely together to share ideas and to explore the limits of the law.
We build strong and long lasting relationships with our clients that are built on trust. Many of our clients are long-standing ones, who have worked with us over a number of years and across a range of legal issues.
We recruit talented lawyers, many of whom are recognised as experts in the independent Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 law firm directories. Our lawyers are supported by a client-focused management and administrative team.
We are proud of the diversity of the people and cultures within Bishop & Sewell, who help us deliver great client service.
We believe in teamwork and our people are used to working across teams in an open and approachable style.
Bishop & Sewell was established in 1979 by Stephen Bishop and Jill Sewell. Jill retired in 2007, but Stephen remains as Managing Partner and the firm continues to act for a number of its original clients.
The firm was originally known for its strong property and commercial reputation. Since then it has steadily expanded into a full service firm, covering Residential & Commercial Property, Corporate & Commercial, Employment, Family & Divorce, Private Client, Dispute Resolution and Immigration services for families, businesses and entrepreneurs.
In August 2017, we merged with London firm, Fisher Meredith. They were founded in 1975 and quickly established a reputation amongst clients and other lawyers for upholding high standards of client work, particularly in family law, property, immigration, employment and human rights.
