About Dockland Solicitors

Docklands Solicitors was formed in 2005 to provide bespoke legal expertise to individuals who live and work in this thriving area known as “Docklands”.    In October 2016 we merged with Whitehead Monckton, a prominent South East law firm established over 235 years ago and with a range of offices across Kent.

We have always provided a personal and flexible service to clients, particularly focusing on residential conveyancing, family matters and wills.  Now with the backing of Whitehead Monckton we can offer expertise across the whole range of legal requirements for both individuals and businesses.

Our successful development is a result of our emphasis on personal contact and listening to our clients. We want to ensure you have the right legal advice for all your personal needs. We also want to ensure we provide an excellent service, matched by good value for money.

Our local knowledge

As one of a select number of law firms in Docklands who specialise in helping individuals with their legal needs, we are able to provide a responsive and flexible service whether you live or work here. You want to know you have the right experts with the right knowledge on your side.

Being established for over 10 years means we have been part of the transformation of this area and our local knowledge has developed as the buildings have grown around us.  See our approved listing on ILondon.co.uk http://www.ilondon.co.uk/profile/932663/Portsoken/Docklands-Solicitors/" the local website that recommends, rates and reviews local businesses.

Through Whitehead Monckton we are a member of Lawnet an association of over 66 independent law firms.
