Welsh Law

With our roots firmly in Wales, we understand just how important it is to recognise the way in which Welsh law is rapidly diverging from English law.

Welsh legislation has an impact on a broad range of areas – from public services to economic development or planning law to education – and we have worked hard to ensure that we can call ourselves experts in understanding the distinct legal and political Welsh landscape.

We have many Welsh speaking lawyers in the firm, who are happy to advise you in Welsh, if you prefer. We’ve also arranged for lots of our non-Welsh speaking staff to attend language courses in order to develop this skill, as it’s something we’re committed to continually improving.

And, as The Legal 500’s Welsh Law Firm of the Year 2015/2016, we’re proud to be based in Cardiff, actively supporting and promoting local Welsh businesses and entrepreneurs, and pride ourselves on being part of Cardiff’s community.

What are our areas of Welsh law practice?

  • Property and Planning
  • Construction
  • Education
  • Data Protection
  • Equality
  • Freedom of Information
  • Governance
  • Health & Safety
  • Immigration
