We were licensed as an Alternative Business Structure in May 2013



We were established in 1901 and were initially based in Castle Street. The firm moved to Lion Street in the 1950s. Our client base is largely agricultural, but certainly not exclusively so. We aim to provide a wide range of legal services to meet the needs of all of our clients. We reluctantly took the decision some years ago, and as a result of changes to the structure of public funding, not to undertake any legal aid work, nor do we deal with criminal cases. We are committed to providing a high standard of service in all private client work. We are a two partner firm and acquired our licence as an Alternative Business Structure in May 2013. The Partners are Sian Morris and Chris Morris. We are currently working towards the Conveyancing Quality Standard, and   the Wills Quality Standard. We have three solicitors in addition to the partners, as well as five support staff.

Our Brecon Office is open 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday. We are more than happy to visit you at home (distance permitting) or to arrange appointments out of office hours and on Saturdays. 


As well as our office in Brecon, we can accommodate appointments in Builth Wells by prior appointment. Please telephone the Brecon office to arrange.


Our Equality and Diversity data is available for inspection at Reception here in the office.
