Meet A Member – Stokes Partners

Stokes Partners are delighted to be new members of Bridgwater Chamber.   The firm prides itself on offering a unique service across Somerset and Dorset.  Our teams are small but have an exceptionally high degree of specialism and experience enabling us to offer expert advice that is pragmatic and cost effective and based on a real in depth understanding of the relevant law.  Our aim, whatever the area of law we’re dealing with, is to get the job done and to ensure that we communicate with  our clients as we move matters forwards so that they know exactly what’s going on at any point in time. Although Stokes Partners is based in Crewkerne we look after clients all across the South West and beyond.  Our lawyers have built up personal reputations for the quality of the work they do and we’re regularly instructed by clients who may be based some way away but who specifically want to work with one of our experts. Whether we’re acting for clients in their personal or business capacity we want to make sure that we get a real understanding of their situation and their overall needs.  We want to build long term relationships with our clients and that means getting to know them and their circumstances however small the transaction that we may be helping them with. Stokes Partners’ latest arrival, Kit O’Brien joined the firm in their family team as a partner with effect from 3 January 2018. Kit qualified as a solicitor in 1991 and has always specialised in family law; she is an accredited member of the Law Society Family Panel and a member of Resolution.  She has been based in Somerset since 1996 and has established a reputation for being passionate about client care and for providing an efficient and empathetic service coupled with realistic advice.  Kit is a trained mediator and collaborative lawyer and so able to assist clients with the most appropriate option for their needs.  Kit is described in this year’s Legal 500 directory as having “the perfect mixture of technical excellence, pragmatism and a good eye for a deal”. Having been based in Somerset since 1996 Kit’s previous roles have seen her working predominantly in Taunton and Bridgwater and she continues to work with clients and contacts in both areas as well as further afield.  Kit comments; “I’m delighted that Stokes Partners have decided to become members of Bridgwater Chamber of Commerce.  I know that Bridgwater is home to many SME and micro businesses run by entrepreneurial and determined people.  They want their legal advice to be proactive and pragmatic, to provide the best possible expertise as cost effectively as possible and really to add value.  I believe that the ethos of Stokes Partners is a great “fit” for the Bridgwater business community. I’m thoroughly enjoying working with people in and around Bridgwater again and as a firm we’re excited about playing a part in supporting this vibrant, skilled and hardworking community”.
