Frederic Hall

The firm’s history goes back over 120 years. We operate from impressive premises in prime business areas of Folkestone and Dover, and combine traditional law firm values of commitment, reliability and expertise with a modern thinking and progressive approach to the delivery of legal services.

We are accessible, approachable and use plain English and we employ experienced staff with the skills to understand the requirements of clients and to deliver exceptional service.

We are a high street practice and serve the needs of a wide range of business and individuals within our geographical catchment area and, indeed, from wider a field as a result of a high level of personal recommendations from satisfied clients and business colleagues. We are located in the port town of Folkestone and Dover and have clients resident in Europe who take our advice on matters of English law. As a result we have developed good working relationships with lawyers in some European cities.

We serve the needs of individuals, families and small to medium-size businesses (companies, partnerships and sole traders). We deliver a full range of legal services including Business Transfer work, Property Sales and Purchases, Wills, Estates and Tax Planning, Divorce, Finance and Children matters, Employment and Landlord and Tenant, Litigation including Contract disputes, contentious probate, personal injury, building disputes and all commercial disputes.

We believe in long term relationships with clients and we take the time to understand their requirements, so that we can give the very best personally tailored service.

We also believe that to deliver exceptional client service it is necessary to employ and retain exceptional staff. The wealth of their experience enables us to quickly and efficiently progress matters to conclusion often saving time and costs that might otherwise be wasted by those less experienced. This same philosophy applies to all staff including support staff, many of whom started their careers with us on leaving school and have returned (again and again in some cases) as family commitments have allowed.
