How we’ve helped our clients

“Developing personal relationships and trust is really important. We’ve worked with Paris Smith longer than I can remember in a whole range of areas including commercial property, intellectual property, commercial law.”


Southampton Science Park

“We needed a Partner to help us with the legal changes that are affecting our business and the original team we used had been taken over by a large partnership which meant that it was quite an impersonal service. We were looking for a more personalised service where we got advice from a relatively local team. I had a knowledge of Paris Smith previously and there were a couple of people whom I knew on the team so the choice was easy plus the response and advice we initially got was excellent. We have rewritten all our contracts and Privacy policies and the team has helped us on the road around GDPR plus we have also used the HR side of the business which has been excellent as well. Paris Smith is big enough to give you every bit of advice you may need whilst giving a very personal service which caters for us specifically. Paris Smith have an all round ability to cover all your legal needs and have expertise that gives you both sage advice but also tailored to your business. I would recommend them to partner with you to ensure your business receives the best advice. ”
