A Little Bit About Us.

Peter Millican Law Ltd is a specialist commercial law firm. We ONLY work for company owners, businesses, and local authorities / the public sector.


Almost all our business is through word-of-mouth referral. Our clients use us because we only focus on commercial law. What this means is we can give them a faster turn around on their instructions, and have the specialist knowledge to spot tiny but significant details that other more generalist solicitors might miss.

Almost all work is handled by a solicitor who’s already worked in your specific niche for over ten years. This is true whether it’s commercial lease negotiation, business sales / acquisitions, public sector contracts for procurement or setting up educational academies, or commercial debt recovery.

We’re a relatively small firm. This has two distinct client benefits. Firstly, we’re not paying rent on vast Quayside office blocks, so our fees are highly competitive. Secondly, it means we don’t have scores of trainee and junior solicitors to keep busy. So when we take a client instruction it gets worked on by a single, highly-experienced specialist. This eliminates the hand-offs, delays and quality control issues that much larger firms have to carry.

For you, all this translates to three big advantages when they compare us with the big firm alternatives:


BETTER legal advice
FASTER and more RESPONSIVE to your needs
