Regency Cheltenham nestles against the Cotswolds and is a wonderful mix of tradition and leading-edge technology.

Ranked as one of the best places to live in England, with its renowned racing calendar, rich cultural events and leading schools, it’s no surprise that families and businesses are attracted to this historic town and its beautiful countryside.

Our Cheltenham office is located in the heart of this vibrant town. We take a refreshingly different approach and are well-placed to provide you with the level of expertise you would expect of an international law firm but with the convenience of a full-service office on your doorstep. 

Decades of knowledge gained from operating at the heart of the local business and private community, combined with our ability to understand your needs, makes us who we are.

Whether you are an individual, business owner, entrepreneur, or wealth creator with interests both within the region, nationally and internationally, we can meet all your needs. You will have the support of experts from across all business disciplines of property, corporate finance, contracting, employment, restructuring, insurance, and disputes; alongside personal advice on family and personal tax planning and private property.

Our talented team includes some of the highest-ranked lawyers in the region and has the capability and the resources to advise on complex transactions while providing the hands-on, tailored support that you need. We have considerable experience working with national and international clients; helping you to make connections and realise your ambitions.

With a Partner-led service, our client relationships are long-standing, and we are ’trusted advisers’ to many of our clients. We are with you every step of the way.

Specific local clients we work with include the following:

Landed Estates

Cheltenham and the surrounding area has always been desirable for landed estates and country property. With its diverse countryside, there is ample opportunity across all types of assets, from woodland to equestrian, heritage, vineyards, farmland and much more.

Investors & Entrepreneurs

Cheltenham and its wider surrounds into the Midlands and the South-West are home to some of the most diverse and dynamic investors and entrepreneurs, with businesses that form the bedrock of the national and local economy, many with international reach.

They range from individuals making their wealth in significant private and public companies to family owner-managers who have passed their honed businesses successfully through the generations; each playing their talented part in making our community prosper. 

We take great pride in working with business owners at all stages of their journey. We are here to advise you as you continue to innovate, grow and invest. Read more about how we can assist investors and entrepreneurs here.


Areas of law we work with include the following:

Strategic Land

Strategic land is a long game with different approaches to suit a landowner’s appetite for risk, need to generate cash and wish to control the look and feel of the developed scheme.

With larger schemes involving more than one landowner, you will need to consider how you structure the delivering of the scheme, working with your neighbours, while mitigating tax.

In Cheltenham, our strategic land team offers a one-stop service to landowners, helping you plan for and realise maximum value. Our team operates within one of the largest private client practices in a UK law firm and one of the largest real estate teams in the country. Our breadth and quality of specialist services across the firm give us the ability to offer a one-stop service.

We act for over 100 estates and for both individual and institutional landowners in relation to sites across the country. We have extensive knowledge and experience in guiding landowners through the options available and can assist with your negotiations to achieve the best deal and deliver a solution which maximises value and tax efficiency.

Technology & Cyber

Advancements in technology across all aspects of our lives are imperative to growth, prosperity, security and safety.

Creating an environment which harnesses innovation, creativity, teamwork, education and thought leadership, attracts financial investment and draws in the best talent is critical to the development of new technologies and the creation of the Cyber Park in Cheltenham will provide just that. Supported by stakeholders locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, it will place Cheltenham at the centre of the world’s cyber industry at a time when security has never been more relevant to businesses, governments, banks, schools, the health service and each of us individually.

Cyber and Cheltenham go hand in hand and our full-service team is ideally placed to support all aspects of your business. We have a proven track record in advising dynamic, forward-thinking businesses across the broad spectrum of technology and cyber and welcome the development of the cyber community right here in Cheltenham.  

We understand this world and are here to work alongside you to make the most of opportunities, secure investment, protect intellectual property, collaborate, manage data, incentivise people, negotiate with customers and suppliers and resolve disputes.
