Our innovative and creative ways of operating mean our lawyers have the support and flexibility to deliver the dedicated, personal service our clients need at a price they can afford.
When Setfords was founded in 2006 the intention was to create a firm that addressed the frustrations faced by many people using legal services which is why we have made these commitments:
Provide expert advice at a competitive price
As well as a team of full-time lawyers based in our Guildford office we have over 200 consultant lawyers based both locally and across the UK. Each one is supported by a 50-strong central team. It means they are empowered and free to work in a more effective way.
When you employ one of them to deliver legal services that is who will deal with your case from start to finish – you won’t be handed off to a junior member of staff.
And because we aren’t housing all of our lawyers in one place, our costs are lower, which means you get that expert advice at a more competitive price than you might expect to pay at a traditional firm.
Ensure all our clients get the dedicated service they deserve
In many firms lawyers have billing targets, meaning they’re encouraged to take on as many clients as possible, and that can mean the service suffers. But that’s not how we work. Our lawyers are focused on one thing: providing the best possible personal service. Our lawyers are thinking about you, not us.
Trust is at the heart of everything we do so we say what we mean and deliver what we promise. You can have confidence in us because of the way we operate. We support our lawyers so they can support you.

This note is not intended to substitute legal advice from your instructed lawyer. You should always consult with your lawyer directly regarding any specific queries you may have. We must repeat that we are limited to providing legal advice to you in respect of employments (remove s) matters which we are instructed on by you.
