Having spent over £100k in legal fees in the past l would not pay another solicitor next time unless it was no win no fee, any one on here tried the no win no fee and l would be pleased to know your experience.
 
You usually get what you pay for in the legal profession.... like most other areas.
Someone really good will be much cheaper in the long run.
When a firm you have used for generations gets swallowed up by a bigger organisation and the most recent guy you have been dealing with for a number for sensitive issues over 10 years is "no longer with us" and you never received any notification of his leaving would you feel like looking elsewhere - I certainly do..

Too right there, old firm got swallowed up, then moved offices in to the town centre, no parking here, the old place could park a hundred cars.

Man I was dealing with, a partner, suddenly said he was leaving, nothing to do with the takeover he claimed, although he did just finish the job in hand.

Next both the receptionists left, they knew all the regulars as soon as they entered the place.

Needed to update wills, oh he's left as well, another partner.

Finally the head of conveyancing moved elsewhere, only found that out from the estate agent when selling dad's house, she was also a partner, she hinted that she left because they wanted her to go to another office 20 miles away to work from,and that she objected to paying for parking in town/city she is now with another smaller company again as a partner, and now working out of Holmfirth, where she can walk to work if she likes and not have to pay parking fees, or if she does it's only £2 for a day.

The world is changing fast, big offices are on the way out. My wife is now working with a "big firm", but everyone works at home. No internal politics as there is essentially no hierarchy. The company basically supplies backroom services to the solicitor and they take a cut of the bill. The lawyer keeps the rest.
