Solicitors in Cardiff

The criminal and civil legal system in Cardiff and Wales is governed by the same rules as those in England. Solicitors in Cardiff practise in varying areas of the law, particularly over recent years, as the city has done much to raise it profile. For example, the city has spent a lot of money in the past couple of years on Bay Development, Europe’s largest waterfront regeneration project, and the development of the Millennium Centre, making Cardiff a major travel and business destination. This has meant that Cardiff has become the home to many commercial and construction law firms on top of the more typical high-street practices.

Solicitors in Cardiff can also advise their clients on:

  • family law
  • employment law
  • wills and probate
  • residential and commercial conveyancing
  • intellectual property law

Most solicitors in Cardiff generally work with the local courts and tribunals. Cardiff has an employment tribunal, a Crown and magistrates’ court as well as a Civil Justice Centre and houses the Probate Registry of Wales. These can be found at the following addresses:
