Our business, its ethos and principles:
Nicola Phillips Solicitors was established in 2008 by its founder and senior partner, Nicola Phillips. Our principal business ethos is to provide our clients with the best possible service with the minimum stress to them and at the same time to offer good value-for-money.
To this end Nicola has assembled an experienced and able team, well-qualified to cover a wide range of legal services (see “Our Team” and “Our Services” below).
Another guiding principle is to make our clients feel very much at ease and undaunted by the buying/selling process. We take great pains to avoid confusing legal jargon and to explain legal issues clearly. Our new premises on Black Horse Way are very much in keeping with this welcoming and non-intimidatory principle. Behind the Georgian facade, which blends harmoniously with our lovely town centre, lies a newly-furnished and decorated interior, offering a warm, welcoming and relaxing ambience to our clientele.
Our company is a young one, having been founded by Nicola Phillips in 2008. However, after gaining her honours law degree from Wolverhampton University via Holborn College, London, Nicola accumulated a vast amount of experience working for top law firms in the area and gained a thorough insight into the workings of a successful legal business.
She has transferred all this knowledge into the running of her own business, despite the long recession from which we are only now emerging, she has managed to more than triple the size of her business, creating the thriving company you see today. Proof of the firm foundations Nicola established from the very beginning.
While we are ambitious to expand yet further in the years to come, we are determined to remain faithful to our original ethos of providing the best and most stress-free service to our customers. We pride ourselves on a happy combination of up-to-date, exacting professional standards and old-fashioned principles.
