Our Legal Services in Shrewsbury

Cases of medical negligence have dominated the legal service industry in and around Shrewsbury in recent times. There has been the tragic news about failures within the maternity department of Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, and also the national breast screening scandal, where more than 400,000 women have missed potentially life-saving mammograms due to an administrative error. 

With direct experience of representing families in such difficult and often tragic circumstances, we pride ourselves on our sensitive and expert handling of such cases and are highly respected throughout the industry.

We organise industry events focusing on personal injury and medical negligence such as the Surviving Spinal Injury Conference, which brought together leading medical specialists and former patients who gave talks and provided information to fellow professionals, charities and individuals about the path from injury and diagnosis all the way through to rehabilitation.

Employment and housing are two further sectors regularly requiring legal advice in the area, in the current climate. 

The ever-growing population of Shrewsbury - the result of the growing jobs market in the town and its commuting distance to Telford, Wolverhampton and Birmingham, plus the direct rail link to London, – is increasing demand for new homes and property developments are springing up across the area. Planning and its associated legal issues have become a high priority in the region and one our specialist property and planning lawyers are adept at dealing with.

As a key commercial centre for Shropshire and with more than 500 businesses with offices registered in Shrewsbury, legal services for businesses in the area are in high demand.

Shrewsbury Business Demographics

Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, with a population of more than 74,000. It is located precisely nine miles from the Welsh border and serves as the commercial centre for both Shropshire and mid-Wales. Shrewsbury is one of the primary locations for businesses and jobs in the county with almost 40,000 people employed in the area, thanks to the bustling town centre and various business parks including the Battlefield Enterprise Park and Shrewsbury Business Park. 

Retail is a particularly significant industry for Shrewsbury’s economy, generating an economic output of £299 million per year. It accounts for 12.6% of the town’s total employment and 42.2% of all retail employment across the wider county of Shropshire.

The public sector, however, is responsible for 30.2% of employment in the town with healthcare being overwhelmingly the largest industry in Shrewsbury in terms of the level of employment and also the amount of revenue created.

Shrewsbury Culture and Social Scene

The historical town of Shrewsbury welcomes thousands of visitors every year, with over 30,000 people attending the famous two-day Shrewsbury Flower Show each summer alone. The historical sites of Shrewsbury Castle, which is now home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum, and Shrewsbury Abbey, part of which dates back to 1083, are other significant points of interest in the borough and perfectly showcase the magnificent history in which Shrewsbury is steeped. The town also boasts a year-round programme of events including music, comedy and literary festivals, while the independent Market Hall Cinema and the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery are magnets for culture vultures everywhere.

There is something for everyone in amongst Shrewsbury’s eateries and bars with traditional pubs, artisan markets, cocktail bars, fine dining and dancing into the small hours all thrown into the mix. 

And Shrewsbury residents are in good company with notable names such as Charles Darwin and Wilfred Owen having once lived here. So keep your eyes peeled around the town for the blue plaques commemorating two of the town’s most eminent residents.
