Jan Samuel


Born in North Devon, Jan has spent his professional life as a solicitor in the West Country, although he acts for clients all over the country and beyond.

Qualifying in 1980, Jan was very quickly made a partner of a well respected Devon practice. In 1985 Samuels Solicitors was formed. As well as having an honours degree in law from Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, Jan has an HND in business studies.

Jan is a litigation specialist with an impressive reputation. He is highly respected by clients and opponents alike and is particularly skilled in achieving settlements in very difficult cases.

Jan has dealt with innumerable very high value and complicated claims against negligent accountants, financial advisors, solicitors, surveyors and barristers, recovering large sums in compensation for clients who have suffered losses. Jan has been on the Law Society's panel of professional negligence solicitors for decades.

Jan is also an expert in handling complicated insolvency transactions, for both companies and individuals, as well as dealing with cases involving disputed wills and conflicts surrounding inheritance. He is particularly good at dealing with complex cases, many of which involve long running disputes where clients come to him after they become frustrated with previous solicitors. 

In addition to being a formidable lawyer, Jan is a businessman and entrepreneur. Having personal experience of diverse commercial pursuits, in property and business matters, he is unusually well-qualified to provide all-round business advice to clients.

Jan enjoys travel, cycling, music and good food, although not necessarily in that order.
