Moore Barlow

A true partner to our clients, we focus on delivering exceptional services for private individuals and families, owners and leaders of fast-moving organisations and businesses and people whose lives have been affected by serious accidents or negligence. We are especially well recognised for our work with landed estates, families and charities, in relation to contentious trusts and estates, property and matters arising from running privately owned businesses.

We work to continuously nurture relationships, provide a listening ear, and develop a supportive and transparent network to deliver value for our clients in times of uncertainty and unprecedented change.

For over 200 years we've done this, building up an incredible knowledge base and with a focus on making a difference for our people, our clients and our communities.

We have 70 partners, 275 lawyers and legal professionals, and a total staff of 480, with offices in London, Richmond, Guildford, Woking, Southampton and Lymington.


Commercial Property - Landed Estates and Agriculture

Moore Barlow's Rural Services team is the largest dedicated Agriculture and Estates legal team in London and the South. Many of our team have decades' experience, and many come from farming and equestrian family backgrounds and are passionate about the sector they work for. We are well-known in the industry for 'walking the land' with our clients and their professional advisers rather than talking over the phone, a service not many of our competitors replicate.

Contentious Trusts and Estates

The contentious trusts team has a strong reputation as a go-to firm for high-net-worth individuals. The depth of knowledge and skill that the Moore Barlow team has make it a real alternative to London firms, offering the same or higher levels of expertise and competitive rates. While we act for domestic clients, we also have an international client base, acting for clients in Singapore, Canada, Switzerland, Australia, Spain and the USA.


Moore Barlow's Family team is highly regarded for assisting with complex multi-jurisdictional pre-nuptial agreements and we have established relationships with several highly regarded lawyers in other jurisdictions to assist in advising our clients and provide them with a fully rounded service. We are well-known for our exceptional children work, including child arrangements orders, leave to remove, parental alienation and surrogacy.

Private Wealth

Our Private Wealth team is one of the largest specialist teams in Southern England with a strong reputation for tax efficient succession and for all aspects of trust advice including establishment, administration, winding up of trusts and the taxation consequences supported by both specialised lawyers and a chartered tax advisory team. The team are heavily involved with the Society of Trust Practitioners, the Private Client Sector of the Law Society and Solicitors for the Elderly.

Residential Property

When buying your dream home or an investment property, it pays to take advice from a team that are well connected in the property sector and have strong links with other professionals such as surveyors and accountants and good relationships with local agents. Moore Barlow's team have a strong reputation for securing prestigious property for their clients; utilising their effective networks to ensure a smooth and timely purchase.
