Certainty and Clarity

A different approach to Commercial Law

The directors of PG Legal are continuing to monitor and follow the advice that is being issued by the Government and World Health Organisation. At this moment in time, our offices will remain open but with limited members of staff and we will continue to provide updates to you. Certain members of staff will be working from home during this time. We understand that this is an uncertain and testing time for businesses and our clients. In light of this, we will continue to assist clients with their ongoing matters and any potential new matters via email, telephone calls and other methods of communication. We would, however, ask that face to face meetings with clients are kept to a minimum unless urgent. The wellbeing of our staff and clients throughout this period is a priority. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns and we shall try to assist.

What We Do

PG Legal provides a comprehensive range of commercial legal services to businesses of all sizes and sectors as well as Private Client assistance whether that is Will writing, Powers of Attorney or Residential Conveyancing.

No matter what your legal position, whether you are a Director of a multi-national company, a sole-trader or an individual needing legal guidance, our highly experienced team believes in cutting through jargon to provide clarity and certainty, and delivering practical solutions for you and your business.
