Founded in 1894, Dowse & Co is one of the oldest solicitors’ firms in London

Our reputation and client loyalty is founded upon our:

  • Dedication to our clients’ interests
  • Commitment to the highest professional standards
  • Effective and affordable service
  • Friendly and understanding approach


Dowse & Co offer a wide range of professional services to handle the legal problems presented by our clients, whether they are individuals, businesses, companies or community organisations. We are dedicated to achieving the best outcome for our clients whose interests always come first.


Although the firm offers a wide range of services, each of our lawyers is a specialist. This has obvious benefits for our clients including our ability to match the expertise and services of the larger City and West End firms who are often our opponents.

Our team of lawyers undertake continual training to ensure their knowledge is constantly updated. All case files are subject to supervision and random audits to enhance the overall quality of delivery.

We utilise the latest computer technology to monitor and exchange information.


Wherever possible, we will offer services under Legal Aid, “No Win, No Fee” agreements and/or litigation insurance.

We have held Legal Aid accreditation for many years and presently undertake housing and family work. Our contracts were awarded following in-depth audits by the Legal Services Commission who reported “the firm is well organised and managed” – a reputation which we have worked hard to achieve and retain.
