Solicitors in Peterborough
Peterborough is a relatively small city in Cambridgeshire. For the past few years the city has been experiencing a rate of economic growth which is greater than the UK average, and as one might expect there are therefore many Peterborough solicitor firms which offer company and commercial legal advice. However, with a population of over 150,000 there is enough demand in the city to justify Peterborough solicitor firms offering a full range of services, from probate to criminal representation. Although some smaller Peterborough solicitor firms only offer industry-specific services such as conveyancing, other firms have multiple departments which offer many different services.
Solicitors in Peterborough can also advise on:
- family law
- employment law
- wills and probate
If you are currently involved in a legal dispute, finding the right legal council can be difficult. You should ensure that the solicitor you instruct is regulated by the SRA (Solicitors’ Regulation Authority), and is familiar with the specific area of law your dispute pertains to. Industry-specific knowledge should not be underestimated as some legal concepts relate directly to specific industries.
If you are expecting to attend a court hearing, you should make sure you know which court to attend. The English legal system divides legal disputes to several different categories, such as family law, civil law, criminal law and other less common areas. Criminal cases begin in the magistrates’ court and if the offence is more serious then it is heard in the Crown Court. Civil cases are usually heard in the county court, whilst family law disputes vary depending on the area. In Peterborough these distinctions are less important since most cases are heard in the Peterborough Combined Court Centre, at Crown Buildings, Rivergate, PE1 1EJ.
