At Broomhead & Saul we have been providing expert legal services to a broad range of personal and business clients since 1895.

Traditional and Modern

We are based at our two offices in the historic town centres of Taunton and Ilminster. As a traditional law firm we offer a full range of easily accessible first rate legal services including advice in Children and Family law, Residential Property, Wills, Powers of Attorneys and Probate law. We also have a strong Litigation & Dispute Resolution service offering.

Covid-19 Update

Broomhead & Saul remain open for business.

Please, contact us in the usual way if you wish, or you can arrange for a face to face consultation using video conferencing.  We are also happy to see you in person but only by appointment.

The pandemic has resulted in an increased demand for wills, Lasting Power of Attorneys, and family law services.

Broomhead & Saul: Simply Miles Ahead

On 29 July 2020 we made legal history when we devised and managed what was probably the world’s first cross-border remote will execution.

We were instructed by an elderly lady who had retired to live in Crete.  She was concerned by the risk to her health due to the Covid19 implications of travelling to the UK to set her English affairs in order.

Thanks to our successful law reform campaign, initiated in early June (in partnership with Solicitors Title LLP, see also  Broomhead & Saul leads the way), we were able to supervise the entire process of preparing, signing and witnessing her will from our Taunton office, without her needing to leave the comfort and safety of her home in Chania; over two thousand miles away.  This was achieved using the popular and widely available Zoom video conferencing application.

The client, who is approaching her eighth decade and who had never used social media or video conferencing apps before, expressed her appreciation with these words: ‘Thank you so much for all that you have done in recent days to organize and produce the distant will for me.  I had imagined that it would be a very complicated operation and take a considerable time to arrange, but you made it all so easy for me.

We are the first law firm in the country to offer a video witnessing of wills service for clients who need to avoid the risk of exposure to the coronavirus; regardless of whether they are local or living abroad.
