Battens is a full service law firm that has been acting successfully for its clients for more than 300 years. Originally established in 1706 to serve families, landowners and businesses, it is now one of the largest and most respected practices in the South West of England.
Working from six regional offices in Bath, London, Dorchester, Sherborne, Weymouth, and Yeovil (the firm’s closest office to Hinkley) Battens covers all aspects of the law.
Demand for support in more complex areas, particularly in heavily regulated sectors, has seen the firm augment its offering by developing specialist teams in planning, property litigation, residential property, construction and media.
Types of work undertaken: Specific areas of expertise include:
Commercial property services: with a focus on freehold sales and purchases, business premises and development land, leases of buildings, shops and factories, mortgages, conditional agreements, options and other dealings with industrial or leisure sites. Battens also offers comprehensive advice on planning, environmental law and land-use.
Property litigation: including landlord and tenant matters, restrictive covenants, easements, trespass, and professional negligence claims against solicitors and surveyors.
Residential property: with the largest residential property team in the region, Battens’ residential property solicitors deal direct with clients and third parties to manage residential transactions swiftly and efficiently.
Company and commercial: with particular expertise in corporate acquisitions and disposals, management buy-ins and buy-outs, business sales and purchases, company formation and start-ups, e-commerce, partnership law, terms and conditions of trading, media law, intellectual property, commercial litigation, agricultural, construction and development, and employment law.
