New Litigation Partner at Niche Firm Samuels

Elayne Clarke

Niche litigation firm Samuels Solicitors has welcomed Mark Cummings as a new equity partner. Mark joins existing partners Jan Samuel and Judith Thompson at the Barnstaple based law firm, where he hopes to build upon their already enviable litigation reputation.

Jan Samuel, senior partner, says “I first met Mark two years ago when he was acting for an opponent. I was so impressed by his litigation expertise that I offered him a job! Mark has over thirty years’ legal experience, mainly in litigation, and I am delighted that he has now agreed to join Samuels as a partner in our expanding litigation team”.

Mark has a specialist practice dealing with boundary and property disputes, consumer and contract disputes, landlord and tenant disputes and contested probate. He works for clients in North Devon, and all over the UK.

Mark says “I am very proud to become a partner at Samuels Solicitors. The firm has an excellent regional reputation for litigation work, and an admirable working ethos for both clients and staff. I have been particularly impressed by Jan and Judith’s dedication to providing access to justice for clients with strong cases through their innovative approach to litigation funding, now that legal aid has all but gone”.

As well as being litigation heavyweights, Samuels also has highly respected private client and conveyancing teams, providing excellent fixed-fee services throughout the region. Samuels offers a free initial appraisal of any matter, and a free will-checking service.
