What Make's Us Different
We Can Help
The law and its associated procedures are complex. We understand that (believe us given how long we have worked to get here). We also understand that not everyone can understand that complexity or the nuances of the Civil Procedure Rules or what security of tenure means. Consequently, what we at Southall Hathaway & Co try and do is simply that complexity for you, our client. We don't believe in the use of fancy legal jargon or latin phrases because that just makes us sound pompous. We much prefer plain English so that you, our client, understand what we are saying. We are happy to take the time to clarify matters so that you are able to make an informed decision on how to progress your matter.
It is our business to take away your stresses and concerns and progress your matter to a satisfactory conclusion whatever that may be.
What Makes Us Different?
HOW CAN WE HELP YOUR BUSINESS?
The law is not easy. Far from it. It is complex. Almost deliberately so. There are regular changes. Sometimes, domestic law is not the applicable law (currently, think EU) so it is important to keep abreast of changes. It is for that reason as a business owner, you want a pro-active, straight talking law firm. We think that this is us. If you in a dispute or need to register or exploit your Intellectual Property Rights or have a commercial property matter, Southall Hathaway & Co LLP can assist your every need.
WHAT SERVICES DO WE OFFER?
We limit the services we offer. Currently, we offer Commercial Property, Commercial Dispute Resolution (including Insolvency and Intellectual Property) Sports law and Construction and Adjudication (contentious and non-contentious). If you have a different legal need, we are happy to make an appropriate recommendation for you.
WHAT WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON
Being different to other firms. We pride ourselves on talking to clients rather than at clients. By simplifying the law. By being transparent with our prices. Importantly, being personable. We understand how busy life is and so we try to accommodate for all our clients needs. We utilise technology to enable us to be accessible when you need us.

There are very few matters that are not capable of resolution without the Court’s involvement. Given the subsequent cost and risk of utilising the Court process in England and Wales [because we have an adversarial system and so, the successful party is entitled to recover their reasonable legal fees from
As a business, you shouldn’t underestimate the significance of IPR – in many cases your IPR can become a valuable business asset. Certain IPR has the ability to be exploited to help raise further finance (from the Bank or other external investors) as opposed to potentially having to provide a
Whatever may be said of insolvency, it is an unfortunate outcome that businesses and individuals alike can often suffer. The simple test for insolvency [whether as a company or an individual] is whether or not you are able to meet your debts as and when they fall due. If the
Sports law is an amalgamation of laws that apply to athletes and the sports that they play. More often than not, Sports law is conceived to be the “glamourous” area of law and it is still growing and developing because it isn’t a bespoke, single ‘task’. As a Sports lawyer,
"It may go without saying that you would expect a solicitor to offer professional advice, but Jason has the unusual skill of being able to combine this with an infectious sense of enthusiasm for business and a real understanding of what it is like to run your own business." -
"I have worked with Stuart for years now and I know he specialises in Intellectual Property cases. Stuart is the kind of person who when you call to chase him for something, he’s already done it – he handles things very quickly and effectively. What’s more, he thinks ahead and sees the potential pitfalls before they arise, so that if they do we’ve already got a plan in place to deal with it."
I instructed Stuart to assist with a particularly difficult case following some issues with my family’s former Solicitors.
After a slow start and poor communication with other lawyers, we were introduced to Stuart several years ago to support us in a case against another firm of solicitors that had completely messed up a Will trust that ended up costing our family a lot of money. He was excellent and over the last 2 years he has helped us to recover a substantial amount of the money lost. I would highly recommend Stuart (and his team) if you need someone tenacious and knowledgeable on your side.Joanne Warren
“What started out as a simple breach of contract claim worth around £12,000 has mushroomed into a High Court appeal, a bankruptcy claim and a dispute with Trading Standards – with Stuart securing for me circa £120,000 plus all associated damages and legal fees. It’s been four years of hell and I wouldn’t wish it in on my worst enemy, but if it did happen I’d recommend Stuart being in their corner. Apart from being totally supportive and financially sympathetic too, he’s so tenacious – and takes any attack or slight on his clients personally. Every time we’ve been to court Stuart has won, he’s been absolutely awesome!”Frazer Arnott
