About Us

Open, straightforward legal advice - We’re different from other law firms

Simpson Millar has a clear and straightforward aim: to offer you a range of open, clear and straightforward legal services, with no hidden surprises or costs.

Our Solicitors and Lawyers are friendly and approachable will always give you straightforward legal advice in easy to understand language.

When we do need to use ‘legal jargon’, we’ll always clearly explain what we mean so you’ll know exactly where you stand at every step of the process.

Finally, we don’t believe in a ‘one service fits all’ approach. Wherever we can, we’ll tailor what we do to suit your individual needs and circumstances and we’ll always act in your best interests.

Our History

We can track our history back to 1841, when Henry Simpson became a partner based in the London Bridge area.

Over the next 180 odd years, we’ve always tried to give our clients the very best service and growing the services we could offer, working with business partners, organisations and trade unions alongside our clients.

In 2015, we acquired Colemans-CTTS and formed a national business across England and Wales, building a strong business with expert lawyers.

Simpson Millar were the first law firm to receive the Law Society’s award for excellence in Practice Management (Lexcel), and one of the first to be accredited as an “Investor in People”.

Now owned by Doorway, the firm has a 5 year growth plan to become the leading consumer law firm in the UK.

As part of that plan, in 2018 we acquired EAD Solicitors in Liverpool and JMK in Lancaster.
