About Michelmores LLP

Michelmores is a leading law firm providing proactive, responsive and quality legal guidance across a comprehensive range of services. They advise clients across the UK and internationally.

The firm was established in Exeter over 125 years ago by Henry Michelmore. They grew steadily, and shortly after the turn of the 21st Century, to accommodate their growth and aspirations for further growth, moved to a purpose built 50,000 square foot building on the outskirts of Exeter. In the same year they opened a London office, and most recently have opened a Bristol office.

Michelmores is committed to attracting and retaining the very best people. The firm is ambitious, and through their strategy they want to be recognised nationally and internationally as having a leading private wealth practice, combined with continued strength and reputation in established practice areas and they want to be recognised for the high quality of their people, clients and service.

Those who contribute the most to the overall success of the firm are the most highly rewarded. Their people are not just encouraged, but required to learn and develop new skills. Michelmores continue to work hard in bringing the firm's values of teamwork, trust, respect, care, candour and integrity to life on a daily basis. When they ask their people why they like working at Michelmores, time and time again they talk about the unique culture of the firm.
