Chilcotts Law - it's all about you! Tailored legal solutions to meet your needs.

Chilcotts is the oldest and most established legal practice in Tavistock. Since its inception in 1847 it has been providing legal services to Tavistock and surrounding areas. It has a very strong and loyal client base within its rural locality but also, to clients and their families as they move around the UK and seek to return to the practice as a known and trusted firm.

The launch of Chilcotts Law not only enhances the existing practice but responds to the market with an innovative and modern approach. The creation of Chilcotts Law – in June 2016, was driven through the vision and passion of its Directors David Wilde and Anne Reed. Both David and Anne bring a wealth of expertise and experience into its formation and creation. The joining of 2 eminent firms means Chilcotts Law will be able to offer a diverse and holistic range of services to both its existing and future clientele. It really is ‘all about you’ and this ethos and energy is scripted into the blue print of the cohesion. The combination of the expertise, professionalism and ethos of the team, delivers not only precision in legal advice, but also offers pragmatic and tailored solutions to the individual’s circumstances and needs.

Chilcotts Law prides itself on being a local firm with local knowledge but with the breadth and capacity to serve clients on a national basis. We are at the forefront in the legal field, offering a full complement of services to our clients that no other local firm can provide. As well as assisting our clients with their everyday legal requirements, from buying and selling a property, to helping them get their affairs in order, we also assist businesses with their commercial transactions. We deal with disputes, challenge Public Bodies, conduct Litigation and specialise in the niche areas of Community Care Law, NHS and healthcare Advocacy and all aspects of Mental Capacity work.
