I found the whole process with Vince very straightforward and easy. He gave me advice when needed and was easy to contact via mobile or email. I will definitely be recommending him to others.

Vince is the Director and Principal Solicitor at Broadlegal with more than 10 years legal experience. Taking advantage of the restrictions lifted by the Legal Services Act 2007 in the way solicitors provide legal services (which has opened up a highly competitive legal services market), Vince set up Broadlegal and created a business model that provides outstanding legal services at much lower costs than traditional law firms. He has brought together a team of exceptional lawyers with expertise, pragmatism, a strong sense of empathy and a good old friendly attitude, who help to deliver the Broadlegal experience and help our clients succeed.
Vince obtained a first class honours degree in Law at the University of Hertfordshire and later completed his Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice at BPP Law School, Holborn. He has since established himself, as a truly knowledgeable and multi-skilled lawyer who also understands that not every legal problem requires a legal solution, where a bit of grit and pragmatism would do.
Alongside his legal practice, Vince is an ADRg Accredited Civil and Commercial Mediator and founder of London ADR, which provides mediation and mediation education services, where he regularly delivers talks on cost-effective out-of-court alternatives in resolving disputes. Vince draws from his mediation expertise when acting for clients on contentious matters and seeks to achieve early resolution with a focus on saving his clients costs and time.
