Our Story

Our Story

Coole Bevis LLP is one of Sussex’s leading law firms. With offices in Brighton, Hove, Worthing and Horsham, we are the product of the merger in 2016 of two of the most highly regarded and longest standing law firms in Sussex, Coole & Haddock and Woolley Bevis Diplock LLP. Both firms were over 100 years old, and our combined expertise and experience has truly stood the test of time.

Our values

For over a century, we have provided legal services to the families and business of Sussex and beyond, meeting the challenge of change and successfully blending modern legal practices with traditional, long-standing values:

Whilst our client base now extends well beyond Sussex, we have always endeavoured to retain the following core principles:

  • Building and maintaining client relationships based on trust, clarity and commitment.
  • Being fair and ethical at all times whilst always striving to obtain the best outcomes for clients.
  • Providing an expert team of lawyers, dedicated to you.
  • Providing efficient communication at every stage.

Equality and CSR

We value our links with the local community and our staff are often found fund-raising for our charity of the year and other worthwhile causes. In the same way, we take our responsibility to the environment seriously, trying to minimise waste and recycle used resources wherever possible.

We believe that everyone is entitled to respect. This is reflected in our approach to equality and diversity – we aim to treat everyone fairly and with courtesy, paying heed to their particular needs as appropriate.

And we hope it goes without saying that we value integrity, being honest and fair in all things that we do.

Our services

We provide legal services in three core areas:

  • You and your property
  • You and your business
  • You and your family

Within these core areas, we provide specialist legal services for a variety of needs, no matter where you are on your journey.

What makes us different?

We believe that you are always entitled to expect excellent service, whatever your needs. What makes us different is our aim to provide “added value” to every matter, a goal that can only be achieved through expertise, experience and a thorough understanding of the law in our core service areas. Our motto is “our clients approach us with issues and leave with solutions” and we hope to prove this difference to you, over a relationship that lasts for many years.
