I am the founding partner of the firm. I started the firm in 2010 with only a part time secretary. Later that year I was joined by Maurice Thompson.

Over the last 8 years we have been nominated for 12 awards, we were lucky enough to be finalists and national winners. Our success is down to resilience, being commercially savvy, employing the most talented people and remaining client focused.

We are National winners for the Federation of Small Businesses 'Triumph Over Adversity' Award, we believe that we can use the same skill set for our Clients. Together we can triumph over any legal adversity you may face and ensure you achieve the success you deserve.

Mr B

I have used this firm for various matters for the past 10 years and have always been 100% happy with the service I receive. Always friendly, approachable and professional.


Thank you once again for all your help through the process of selling my property. I cannot fault your handling of the process and communication. Kind Regards

Mr M

We are delighted to take the time to review Newbold Solicitors and specifically comment on about the service we received from Maurice Thompson. Our case was handled by Maurice with exemplary care and diligence sorting many complexities and issues along the way with speed and a wealth of knowledge. All round our experience with Newbold Solicitors was brilliant and we would most definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone.


Just a quick note to thank you very much for your hard work and diligence in attending to the conveyancing for my flat purchase. I shan't hesitate to recommend your firm in the future. Kind regards


I just wanted to thank you and Lucinda again for arranging to speak to me so quickly yesterday. It has meant a lot to know that I have some support and am not helpless at this very difficult time. Best regards

Miss H

Alexandra's team at Newbolds made the purchase of my 1st home as stress-free as possible & were always happy to answer any queries I had! I would highly recommend and have already referred friends to use your services since. Many Thanks!

Mrs T

Kirsty and her team successfully obtained eviction of my tenant and recovered the rent. Smoothly and quickly at very reasonable rate . Will definitely use again and refer to all my landlord friends.

Newbold Client

Hi Samantha. Many thanks to you and Lisa also, and everyone else involved in this. I really appreciate the speed and efficiency that this has all gone through at. Hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year. Thanks x

Mr and Mrs R

Thank you to Sarah Alcock and her team, kept us informed at all stages and was very helpful. We were out of the country for completion but patiently advised us the progress. Would be more than happy to use again.

Debbie & Shaun

Thank you so much you have been wonderful throughout. We will contact you next year when we are purchasing our new house. Kind regards

Mr J

Having had a hard time with my purchase, I feel that it is only fair to spell out just how excellent Ruth Salerno and Lisa Jones were all the way through the process. My completion date changed multiple times throughout, and the vendor and his solicitors didn't seem to be too good at communicating. Had it not been for Ruth and Lisa at Newbold's I honestly think I would have thrown the towel in. I'm sure they have lots of customers to deal with, but their service was so personal that I was made to feel that I was their only one. They were excellent and super-efficient throughout and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Many thanks guys :)
