Where we’re coming from…


Smith Partnership was founded more than 30 years ago by four friends who had a desire and ambition to create a legal firm where client satisfaction was at the forefront of everything they did. Since then, our legal expertise and commitment to client care has seen us become a trusted partner in handling all manner of legal matters for individuals and businesses across the UK.

Established on October 1st, 1987, our firm has enjoyed significant growth and success. Today, we employ circa 200 staff throughout our network of offices spread across the East Midlands in Derby, Leicester, Burton upon Trent, Stoke-on-Trent and Swadlincote.

Smith Partnership’s mission is to provide an exceptional client service that underpins everything we do. Our founding partners purposely set out to build a firm that treats its clients like real people, avoiding unnecessary legal jargon in the process. Taking an individual and welcoming approach to every case, our highly professional standards and straight-talking style have helped us build long-lasting relationships with our clients. We believe that it’s this same approach that sets us apart from our competitors.

We’re proud to offer a progressive culture that has attracted specialist legal talent working across all areas of law. At the same time, each of our team members continues to share our original vision – to offer unrivaled legal advice centred entirely around the needs of our clients.

We’ve always looked to offer more than just legal expertise and professional advice, and that’s the difference our clients have come to value and trust.
