About Us

Our inside story

Pepperells Solicitors boasts an esteemed legacy, originating from the visionary founding by Stewart Pepperell in 1985.

A pivotal moment in our journey occurred in 2009 when we seamlessly integrated Ivesons Solicitors, a highly regarded legal entity in Hull. Our commitment to enhancing our offerings continued in 2014 with the incorporation of Myer Wolff Solicitors, a well-established local firm synonymous with providing clients with professional, reliable, and affordable legal services. This aligns seamlessly with the Pepperells philosophy, rooted in a steadfast dedication to excellence in client service.

Building on our tradition of growth and strategic expansion, 2020 marked a significant milestone with the acquisition of Millican Law, an esteemed corporate solicitors firm based in Newcastle. This latest addition further solidifies Pepperells Solicitors as a dynamic and comprehensive legal resource, blending experience, reputation, and a commitment to unparalleled client service.

As we continue to evolve and Pepperells Solicitors embarks on the next phase of professional growth, the commitment to excellence remains unwavering at the root of our company ethos, along with an entrepreneurial spirit which strives to shape the future landscape of legal services.

Words from our clients

...In our brief time working with Pepperell's we have been very pleased with their quality of service and professionalism...

After calling 15 carefully picked solicitors, Pepperell’s were the only firm that returned our call and took our business seriously. They carefully gathered information and explained their quotation in a transparent and reasonable fashion. We look forward to working with Pepperells in the future.

...Dealing with Pepperells and Natasha as my solicitor couldn't have been any easier...

Any questions, concerns or problems I encoutered throughout my house buying process were dealt with quickly and clearly. Theres nothing more I could have asked for and could not have been made any easier for me.

...Pepperells and in particular Patrick Craft and his team are extremely professional and you can be 100 % certain that a thorough job is done...

Patrick picked up on an issue that the seller’s solicitor should have seen 2 years ago when the house was first built and had failed to do so, but Patrick was on the ball and would not proceed until the issue was addressed. I would always recommend Pepperells and esp Patrick. Absolutely excellent service. Thank you.


Ryan and his colleagues are professional, efficient and friendly. I have used their services on several occasions. Highly recommended

...Top Service

Ryan and Georgia did an amazing job at working to out tight timescales having previously had our purchase fall through due to the clients circumstances. They made sure all everything was in order and chase the clients solicitors to ensure we kept to time and kept us updated throughout. Very professional service and were very approachable when we had questions. The team were a pleasure to work with and a credit to the Business.

It’s difficult to find solicitors who are experts in company law but Pepperells were a gem. From the initial online meeting, they were very honest and approachable. Amy was very knowledgeable and efficient, she kept me informed throughout the process. Going forward, I have a reliable company I can consult on future legal matters.
