About Frettens LLP

Based in Christchurch, Frettens LLP employs a team of bright and experienced lawyers. They recruit the best professionals, with a blend of knowledge and personality.

Ian Fretten founded the organisation in 1978. He believed there was an opportunity in Christchurch for a solicitor's practice offering great service at affordable prices. Whilst the firm today is very different from the organisation he started in the late 1970's staff still work to his original ideals.

Equal opportunities, personal development and client service are important to them as well as creating an enjoyable workplace for staff. Frettens LLP don’t just assist with legal problems, they also help with bigger issues that people face in their personal or professional lives. They understand their clients and offer honest, clear advice by communicating their options in a straightforward way.

The Managing Partner has an open-door policy and is visible around the office. He holds a BBQ at his home for staff and their families every summer and along with this, partners of the company put money behind the bar for staff to have a drink after work on the first Friday of the month.

Frettens offers a generous benefits package which includes private healthcare, life insurance, pension contribution, flexi-time and free/subsidised parking.
