Occasionally in your life you will encounter problems upon which you need legal help and guidance.  Our strong and talented team of legal experts can provide specialist advice that you need for your case, irrespective of its nature or value.  We can support you in all areas of dispute such as:-

  • Consumer Law Problems (involving the sale of goods and supply of services)
  • Problems with Credit Card Agreements and Loans etc
  • Building Disputes
  • Landlord and Tenant Disputes
  • Professional Negligence (e.g. solicitors, accountants, surveyors)

  • Property Disputes e.g. disputes over rights of way and boundaries etc.

Our Approach

Our main aim is to try and resolve your case in a way that is cost effective for your.  Court proceedings can be expensive and risky.  If possible we will try and resolve disputes by way of settlement, saving you the stress, hassle and costs of Court action.  We have an excellent track record of settling claims in a way that is favourable to you.  On the other hand if an aggressive or dynamic approach is required we can litigate your case to its highest.  If needs be we can call upon some of the country’s finest Barristers to assist.

Legal jargon and technical language is avoided, since we will talk to you in plain English and explain all matters to you in a simple and concise way.


We offer a system of fixed fee interviews, where for a reasonable price we can assess the merits of your case and advise how best to approach the matter.  We can then continue with the case on a fixed fee basis or agree to do what we can within a budget (costs cap) set by you.  To help you budget for your case further we can agree an instalment payment plan rather than insist on lump sum payments.

In certain circumstances we may be able to undertake your case on a “no win no fee” type basis known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. Currently we do not offer Damages Based Agreements for this type of work.

Some times your matter may be covered by the terms of an insurance policy that you hold.  We can assess your eligibility under the policy of insurance, and often agree with the insurer to carry on with your case under the terms of your insurance policy.

Maples supporting Macmillan Coffee Morning

On 29th September 2017 Maples Solicitors LLP will be hosting a coffee morning as part of Macmillan’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”.

Tea, coffee and cakes will be served from 10:00am until 1:00pm and all donations received will go to Macmillan Cancer Support to assist them with providing medical, emotional, practical and financial support to those facing cancer and their families.

At the same time, Maples will also be running a free Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Probate clinic so that whilst you are in the office you may take the opportunity to discuss any of these with one of the Private Client Team with no obligation to commit. You can use the time to raise any questions you may have about making a Will, who you could appoint as Executors, whether you need a Power of Attorney or how a Power of Attorney works, for example.

Maples hope to see their existing clients join them for the coffee morning and very much look forward to meeting new people- everyone is welcome!

Gemma Mayer LLB

"I would highly recommend Maples Solicitors, especially Gemma Mayer, for any conveyancing work. The level of support and professionalism was excellent at all times. I also felt if I needed to ask or clarify anything that it was not an issue. Buying and selling a house is stressful enough, but Gemma helped me through it step by step."

Jamie Dobbs ACILEx

Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death.

Mike Pepper MA

This is the second time we have used Mike Pepper at Maples Solicitors in the sale of our house. We cannot praise Mike enough for the highly efficient and professional service that he has provided us with. He is by far the best solicitor we have ever worked with, and the service that he has provided us with has gone far and beyond anything we have ever experienced. We have found the whole process to be a very relaxing experience.

Claire Smith FCILEx

Claire Smith has been amazing in every way. I highly recommend her and I am so grateful for all her help. She’s professional on all levels, reliable, extremely organised and I will be recommending her to everyone. I’m very lucky to have had her representing me and I can’t thank her enough. She is an asset to Maples. Thanks so much Claire!

Anita Zaborniak

We found it a pleasure to deal with Anita Zaborniak, she was most helpful and informative and kept us up to date with the progress of the purchase of our new home. If we were to move again we wouldn’t hesitate to use Maples again.
