Marsden Rawsthorn’s friendly team aim to be lawyers for the digital age, combining ­progressive and forward thinking with a history dating back to the 19th Century.

One of the county’s most ­respected law firms, their ­solicitors are informed by a rich tradition and a ­formidable pedigree.

The firm also has a culture of innovation, ­continually introducing new technologies. It seeks constantly to ­improve, reviewing its services so that it now offers flexible ­appointments, free law clinics, fixed fee services and more accessible locations.

Property sales and purchases, boundary, landlord and tenant disputes: Conveyancer Barbara Haddleton has more and more house buyers knocking on her door. She certainly has the expertise to help, with 40 years’ experience in conveyancing.

Marsden Rawsthorn has dealt with conveyancing matters for more than 1,000 properties in the past year.

Barbara says: “Feedback we receive from clients suggest they welcome an experienced hand on the tiller when it comes to moving house. In response to demand, Marsden Rawsthorn has recently expanded its conveyancing team.

“We are the local firm of solicitors for Buckshaw Village and are right on the doorstep for local people, with easy parking. Much of our work comes from personal recommendation.

“Every client is provided with a dedicated member of our conveyancing team who will look after their transaction from start to finish. They receive practical advice on addressing any concerns as the transaction progresses together with full clarity of costs involved at the outset.”

The firm helps with house sales and purchases, mortgages, re-mortgages, part exchanges, boundary disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, parents contributing towards the purchase of a child’s house, joint ownership arrangements and more.

Wills, probate, trusts and eldery law: While it is hard to contemplate what may happen in later life and beyond, making provision now is the only way to safeguard the interests of your family and ensure your wishes are acted on.

Solicitor Helen Gaskell, based at Marsden Rawsthorn in Buckshaw Village, says: “We are here to help with writing a will, inheritance tax planning, probate, lasting power of attorney, a Court of Protection application and trust advice and preparation.”

Marsden Rawsthorn has a wealth of experience and not only understands the legalities but also the importance of trust, compassion and understanding. It is up to date with modern-day challenges for wills. Have you ever thought what would happen to your online legacy, bank accounts, PayPal, social media, movie or music download accounts?

“We advise that somebody is authorised to handle the closure of digital assets just as with other tangible assets,” says Helen.

Marsden Rawsthorn’s sensitive and practical approach brings peace of mind to issues that may affect you in later life.

Family law: Libby Daultrey heads up the family department at the Buckshaw Village office, handling all matters associated with family breakdown.

She says: “Legal intervention in family matters is often unavoidable and rarely comfortable. In this difficult area, sensitivity and professionalism are of paramount importance and we encourage resolution quickly and efficiently.

“With dedicated Children’s Law specialists and members of the Law Society’s Children’s Panel on our team, you can be assured of a supportive service at all times.”

Marsden Rawsthorn maintains close links with many domestic violence support groups who work with victims of domestic violence, representing them in court for which Legal Aid may be available.

When it comes to making the decision to marry, enter into a civil partnership or live together, there may be uncertainty about sharing property and assets.

Libby and her team offer guidance on preparing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements providing protection against unforeseen events.

Free 30-minute clinics are held weekly at the Buckshaw and Fulwood offices if you are unsure of the way forward in any family-related matter.

Commercial: Marsden Rawsthorn advises across all the commercial spectrum, offering clients many specialisms.

The commercial team advises on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and on all company and partnership intricacies. Its commercial property department deals with property acquisitions and disposals, business leases (for both landlord and tenant), development sites, re-financing, agricultural land and portfolio management.

The specialist property litigation team advises on landlord and tenant disputes, enfranchisement and breach of covenants.

The litigation department deals with issues including contracts for goods and services, professional/medical negligence, insolvency/debt, defective goods and services.

Litigators achieve the best outcome by negotiation, mediation or court representation. Its employment department advises on the workplace, from drafting contracts/terms of employment, dealing with employer/employee disputes, bullying and harassment, restructuring, to recruitment, TUPE and tribunal representation.
