History

With a history stretching back to the 1980s, we have always had our roots firmly planted in the London Property and Litigation fields. Over the years, Seddons has grown and changed, but the core areas of work have always been maintained.

Seddons Law LLP is the result of a merger in 1988 between Roscoe Philips, a full-service commercial practice, and Woolf Seddon, a niche media practice, forming Woolf Seddon Roscoe Phillips… and then Seddons. More recently, we have seen successful mergers, in 2009 with PDG, a niche Mayfair-based property practice, and in 2016 with BD Laddie, a long-established firm offering property and family advice.

What we do

Seddons achieves the best possible outcome, with the professional and interpersonal skills needed for sensitive matters, complex technical work, and cross-practice issues. We work alongside other professionals to protect clients’ financial and emotional interests, in addition to offering a full range of legal services. Our clients are from varied backgrounds, with an emphasis on business owners and professionals, and we regularly act for high-profile clients, including HNW and UHNW individuals, always understanding the importance of preserving confidentiality and reputation with the utmost discretion. We have had the pleasure of looking after families and businesses for generations, working with them to lay the groundwork from which they can flourish.

We help people reach decisions about what they would like to do with their assets, both during their lifetime and on death. This involves considering a wide range of issues such as the value of the assets, the nature, type and situs of those assets, the type of ownership structure and, of course, the residence and domicile status of the client in question.

No matter the size or extent of the dispute, our approach begins with an understanding of the legal framework and the personal circumstances that our clients face, and the sensitivity required. We never do more – or less – than is required to ensure the best possible outcome. We pride ourselves on our ability to work to tight deadlines while delivering reliable, practical and sound advice.

Over the years we have formed close relationships with financial advisors, developers, surveyors and other professionals to ensure that the highest level of service is offered to clients, every step of the way. We are guided by a desire to excel at making your matter as simple and easy as possible.
