Legal Services Offered

At Fieldings Porter, we’ve pulled together a team of specialists whose expertise spans the industry. Our firm offers the full house of legal services, such as:

Employment Law

Employment can be a particularly complex area of law, with constant changes to legislation forcing employers to think more carefully about their compliance and risk assessment. It’s become increasingly important too for employees to be well versed on their rights in the workplace, and it can often benefit to have a specialist at hand to ensure that these rights are being respected. Fieldings Porter boasts a team of experts in employment law, ready to help both businesses and individuals with advice and representation. We believe everyone deserves to be treated fairly in the workplace, and our dedicated employment solicitors in Manchester will not hesitate to take firm legal action if you have suffered discrimination or harassment of any kind.

Family Law

If you are involved in a dispute with a family member - be it a partner or relative, your best move is to seek specialist family legal advice at the earliest possible stage to prevent the conflict from escalating further. Here at Fieldings Porter we pride ourselves for having a team of family solicitors who combine a sensitive approach with determination to protect the interests of our clients. For generations, our family law solicitors in Manchester have helped families of all backgrounds through disputes to resolution by using tactical negotiation and mediation. If you are separating from your partner, you can expect us to ensure your settlement is fair and the process does not last longer than it has to. Where children are involved, our main priority will be to ensure they are safe and their welfare is protected. Family troubles can be extremely difficult, especially in cases of domestic violence. When victims of abuse come to us for advice, we take all necessary legal action to protect their safety.

Property Law

Whether you’re just about to put your first foot on the property ladder or you are a property professional with multiple investments, you can always rely on our conveyancing solicitors to see you through the conveyancing process with ease. At each new update in your case, we will keep you in the know, answering your questions and advising you on your next steps. You’ll be moving in no time with our property solicitors in Manchester, whether you’re upgrading to a family home or downsizing to a trendy apartment. As well as residential conveyancing, our solicitors can provide advice as well as undertaking the legal work involved in buying and selling commercial property. We know that a business’ premises are pivotal to their success, so will always work to identify risks at an early stage and listen to your requirements in order to provide you the best advice. For buy-to-let landlords and tenants renting property, our lawyers in Manchester are at hand to help keep the peace, offering help on tenancy agreements and assistance in dispute resolution.

Corporate Law

Whether you are a small start up in the process of setting up your company or a well established franchise, our commercial solicitors in Manchester are here to guide you through critical decisions to minimise risk and maximise opportunity. With the relevant experience, legal expertise and business acumen, our corporate law solicitors are a valuable addition to any company. Whether you need help with company formation or are looking for strategic advice through a merger, acquisition or disposal, you can trust Fieldings Porter to keep you right. Our advice is commercially focused, but takes into account your practical requirements. As a result, the solutions we deliver are always suited to your business needs. Our advice is available on a one off basis or as a day-to-day service - whatever works for you, works for us.

Personal Injury Law

If you have suffered from an accident as a result of another party’s negligence, we believe that action should be taken to compensate you. Be it a slip or fall in the workplace or a serious accident such as a road traffic collision, injuries can be life changing for the victims. That’s why at Fieldings Porter, our personal injury solicitors will always take necessary action to secure the compensation that our clients deserve. If your claim is viable, our personal injury lawyers in Manchester will work round the clock to build your claim. With a proven track record for securing a fair settlement for our clients, you can rest assured that your claim will be in safe hands with our team of experts. 

Criminal Law

If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime of any nature, it’s essential to seek legal advice from a qualified professional. At Fieldings Porter, our criminal lawyers have built a reputation for providing strategic advice and support from point of arrest to before and during the trial. The first step will be to gain a full understanding of your situation in order to build a successful defence; something we’ve done with success time and time again for our clients. You will also benefit from our connections to a local and national network of industry leading barristers to support your case and represent you in court.
