Glanvilles is an established legal firm, operating from offices in Fareham and Havant in Hampshire, Chichester in West Sussex, and Newport and Ryde, Isle of Wight.
The firm’s origins go back to the founding of Isle of Wight solicitors, Damant & Sons in Cowes in 1841 and Buckell & Drew in 1843. Damant & Sons merged with Glanvilles in 1988; Buckell & Drew ten years later in 1998.
As a full service law firm, Glanvilles provides legal services to both individuals and businesses.
We continue to enhance our customer service experience as our absolute priority. As a result, we have been extremely pleased to have been awarded two highly sought after accreditations from The Law Society.
We are Lexcel accredited
Glanvilles is proud to hold the Lexcel accreditation. This is the practice management quality mark awarded to firms by the Law Society. Lexcel has been written specifically for the Legal profession and it’s clients and allows any type and size of legal practice to undergo a rigorous independent assessment every year to certify that it meets all the Law Society’s required standards of excellence. Lexcel is only awarded by the Law Society to firms with the highest management and customer care standards.
We are Conveyancing Quality Scheme accredited
Glanvilles is a member of the Law Society’s prestigious Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) – which is regarded as the gold standard for residential practices. The award means that the firm has been recognised as meeting the highest standards in carrying out residential conveyancing work. Membership of the scheme is only awarded to members of the Law Society. The CQS scheme is supported by the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, and the Association of British Insurers.
