    Our history

    Caven was formed in January 2006 and our office is in Earlsfield, south west London. Since then we have carefully selected and grown our network of solicitors, which now numbers in the thousands across the UK. At the same time, the number of clients we receive has also grown rapidly, with our websites receiving up to 100,000 visitors every month.

    Expanding professional referral services

    We have branched out into new areas, such as recommending mediators, barristers, other legal representatives and financial advisors. We can now also assist our customers in finding criminal solicitors, in addition to our main civil law solicitor referral service.

    Collaboration with Thomson Reuters

    From 2009-2012 Caven was part of Thomson Reuters, which helped us to grow the business. They are the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals in not only the legal industry but also the financial, tax and accounting, scientific, healthcare, and media markets.

    We became independent again in early 2013, with many of the new products we'd introduced now being maintained by TR. This has allowed us to focus our efforts on the core product - speaking to members of the public about their case, and putting them in touch with the most appropriate solicitor.
