Legal and Contract Services Ltd was founded in 1990 by our Managing Director Tim Clegg. Originally LCS provided small claims support and business advice to small businesses. It became evident that there was a demand for Estate Planning services and the business moved from Farnborough, Hampshire to Exeter in Devon. This is where the company became incorporated on 13th January 2003. The business is registered number 04635553 at Companies House.
LCS has grown steadily over the years and the Registered Office, which is also our Head Office, is at:
1A Millennium Building, Unit 5, Dawlish Business Park, Dawlish, Devon, EX7 0NH
Our increasing client base is in excess of 35,000 and covers most counties from Cornwall to Tyne and Wear.
The core business specialises in Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Asset Protection, Funeral Plans and Estate Administration. In addition, we provide Document Drafting services to IFA’s, Accountants, Will Writers and Estate Planning professionals.
The latest service to be introduced to LCS is a Private Client Small Claims advisory service which can support anyone with a small claim or needing advice on a particular problem.
LCS employs 20 staff, with the Legal Department being managed by Sue Gould who is a Chartered Legal Executive specialising in the administration of deceased estates. The Operations Department is headed by Rosemary Clegg our Operations Director.
The company is a corporate Member of the Institute of Paralegals and we carry £5 million Professional Indemnity Insurance, with our final dispute resolution being provided by the Legal Ombudsman.
Most of our Continued Professional Development is provided by Central Law Training to ensure our staff are always up to date with changes and updates to the services we provide.
LCS considers it can deliver a better, more cost effective range of services than any Solicitor anywhere.
