Our Exeter Hub provides a focal point for our lawyers and clients across the South West of the United Kingdom. With a large and growing team of respected, high calibre, and highly experienced lawyers, Spencer West has established itself as a leading law firm in the region.

Working in a modern and dynamic way as part of the wider Spencer West UK team, our lawyers in the South West offer the full spectrum of legal services including advice on matters ranging from corporate commercial, to real estate, tax, disputes, employment, intellectual property, private client, and family law.

The creation of our Exeter Hub, which provides a base for client meetings and cross-team collaboration, reflects our commitment to growing our unique offering across the South West, where we have a team of legal experts in locations such as Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Devon and Cornwall.

Many of our clients are businesses, and we have specialist capability in corporate law, including advising on management buy outs, private equity and restructuring matters, and commercial, intellectual property, employment, and data protection law. We work with clients across a whole range of sectors, and have niche, sector specific expertise in the technology, renewable energy, and care sectors.

With a wealth of experience across private client matters, we are ideally placed to provide advice on tax and structuring matters, as well the life cycle of private wealth matters including wills and estate planning, probate, and contentious wills and trusts.

Many of our clients and lawyers are deeply connected to the South West, and we continue to see increased demand from clients for our services in the region.
