SW Law & Finance serves a large and diverse region

Covering the South Hams, South Devon, West Devon, and the greater Dartmoor area.

The majority of our clients are resident in the rural areas between Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Modbury, Yealmpton and Newton Ferrers. Additionally, we actively serve West Devon, from Tavistock, to Yelverton and Princetown, as well as moorland towns such as Ashburton. Clients from the greater Plymouth area including Plympton and Plymstock find that our offices are more accessible than many city centre firms.

The SW Law & Finance offices are just off the A38 Expressway at Lee Mill, and as such are very accessible for clients travelling further afield from East Cornwall and Exeter.
