Founded in 1894, Dowse & Co is one of the oldest solicitors' firms in London.

We have held Legal Services Commission accreditation for several years to undertake housing, family, personal injury and employment work.

Our contracts were awarded following in-depth audits by the Legal Services Commission who reported “the firm is well organised and managed” – a reputation which we have worked hard to achieve and retain.

We offer expert advice in different areas of law. The list below summarises the work undertaken. For more detail on our main areas of expertise follow the links above.

We are constantly improving our service and rely on you to tell us when something goes wrong. We can provide you with a copy of our written complaints procedure. It explains your right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman if we have been unable to resolve any complaint about our services or charges to your satisfaction.
