Meet Your Local Lawyers

As a local law firm with offices in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Sandbach, and Knutsford, Beeston Shenton has a simple philosophy: community first. We’re here to provide the quality and service you’d expect from a large corporate law firm for the local residents of Staffordshire and Cheshire. Our experts are the best in their respective fields and have been working closely with our local communities for years building trust, relationships, and local expertise to ensure we can provide each and every one of our clients with exceptional legal advice and support.

Our Vision

While it’s easy to think one lawyer is pretty much the same as the next, Beeston Shenton isn’t your average law firm. Not content to simply practice law, we’re dedicated to seeing the communities we serve thrive…

  • Family Focussed – Family is everything. Our experts in family law are here to guide you through the tough times while ensuring you and your family have the best and brightest future possible.

  • Community Centred – We work in and with our communities to ensure we not only support individuals but also their businesses, schools, universities and neighbourhoods.

  • Socially Strong – We’re not just your local lawyers, we’re also invested in your development and growth and support this through programmes providing free education and support to universities, students and individuals in our districts.

Our Values

As local lawyers our reputation has been built on a solid foundation of core values:

  • Corporate Law For Local Communities – Our lawyers are leading experts in our specialist fields, providing the professional level of a large corporate law firm on a local level to ensure our communities are protected, respected, and supported to the highest standard.

  • Personal, Practical, Professional – We believe in approaching every client with a personal approach that meets their bespoke needs in a practical way while delivering highly professional legal advice.

  • Knowledge Is Power – The better-educated individuals and businesses are concerning legal issues, the less likely they are to run into trouble. We’re devoted to freely educating our clients through blogs, and articles.

Our Promise

We are well aware of how daunting it can be seeking legal advice, particularly if you need it during a difficult time in your life. Here’s our promise to you:

  • Expertise – Our lawyers are all highly trained in their respective fields with years of experience handling a broad range of cases.

  • Dedication – Each of Beeston Shenton’s lawyers focuses on one speciality, allowing us to remain dedicated to staying completely up-to-date on every aspect of your legal needs.

  • Transparency – We believe you should be fully informed about every aspect of the service we provide to you. Not only do we endeavour to freely provide clear information explaining your legal options, we’re here to answer your questions every step of the way.

Very professional service meant that the whole process was transparent and smooth. Excellent contact with my solicitor. Felt in good hands throughout the process. Would highly recommend.
