About our history

Docklands Solicitors was set up by Rebecca Wigglesworth and Pam Thomas in 2005 to provide accessible and relevant legal advice to businesses and individuals based in “Docklands”.  The initial firm therefore bought together Rebecca and Pam’s specialisms in Family Law and Property Law respectively.

Our offices in Admirals Way offer an extremely convenient location for clients whether they live or work in the area.

Since 2005 the team has grown and we have been providing legal advice, particularly relating to family issues and property transactions.  Clients have appreciated the personal and flexible service we can offer in our location.  From the start of the firm, we recognised the need to offer clients early and late appointments to fit around work commitments, rather than you having to fit around us.

Over the last 10 years, the development of the Docklands area has continued apace.

We are Law Society accredited in the specific specialist areas of Conveyancing, Family Law and Family Mediation.  Monika Pirani is a trained family mediator.

In October 2016, Docklands Solicitors merged with Whitehead Monckton.  Whitehead Monckton has been established for over 235 years and has offices in Canterbury, Maidstone and Tenterden.  With over 100 members of staff, Whitehead Monckton offers the full range of legal services.

This merger enables Docklands Solicitors to assist clients with all their legal needs with the support of the experts within Whitehead Monckton.  Alex Bak and Katie Broadfield, both Associate Directors of Whitehead Monckton have already transferred to the Docklands Solicitors offices.

Docklands Solicitors, through Whitehead Monckton, is a member of LawNet, an association of over 66 independent law firms.  The LawNet team have been supporting independent law firms for over 25 years, enabling them to operate more effectively in a competitive market.

In April 2017 we obtained the quality management standard ISO9001.

Docklands Solicitors is proud to have served the people of Docklands over the past 10 years and we look forward to continuing to do so long into the future.
