Clients first.

Clients first. It’s easy to say, isn’t it? There probably isn’t a law firm out there that doesn’t say it in some way or other, so how do we persuade you that clients really are everything to us?

3volution is a boutique corporate law practice, based in Leeds but providing advice to clients nationally and internationally. Our clients come back to us. When we ask them what we're doing right, we hear three things time and again.

We get the job done

Clients don’t care about whether someone’s a Corporate lawyer or Finance lawyer.  So the first thing we do is to find out what you want and then find you the best person (or people) to get it (and if we don’t think it can be done, we tell you).

We tell you what it’ll cost

Where we can, we’ll offer you a fixed price for the work.  And, unlike many others, we’ll be realistic about what work will be involved.  We know that the last thing you want is a bill that’s double the quote you were originally given. The unexpected happens, but a lot less often than many lawyers would have you believe…

Where we can’t offer you a fixed price, we’ll talk to you about our costs, regularly and openly. No nasty surprises.

We are experts

What we do, we do well. What we don’t do well, we don’t do.

We work with other experts we trust where we need to in order to get the job done. If we can’t help you, we’ll tell you and, where we can, we’ll point you in the direction of someone we trust and rate.

We work with businesses of all sizes across many different industries. Our clients tell us that we’re different, they like what we do, they keep coming back to us and they send us their colleagues, customers, suppliers, family and friends. We believe that working in the way that we do enables us to build long-standing relationships with our clients, which is good for them and us.

Our ethos

A Personal Approach

We know that the best advice comes from lawyers who take the time to listen to their clients in order to understand the issues and their clients' objectives. 

Straightforward Advice

We give helpful, commercial advice in language you will understand.

Trusted Advisers

We want to build long-term relationships with our clients and to be the advisers they turn to for support, whether they are expanding, protecting their business or facing difficult times.

Areas of Expertise

The work we do doesn’t lend itself to comprehensive lists. The section below will give you an idea of what we do, but if you’re in business and have a legal issue, we are sure we can help you (or will know someone who can).
