ODT was formed in 1998 when the firms of Osler & Co and J P Donegan & Co joined forces with Rupert Taylor. The aim was twofold: to bring together three solicitors with growing reputations in the Brighton & Hove area, and to create a young and friendly practice specialising initially in Property Law and Civil Litigation. The firm has expanded on those beginnings year on year since, bringing in new partners and developing its reputation, particularly in the fields of Leasehold Enfranchisement (the process of buying your freehold and obtaining lease extensions), Commercial Property, Landlord & Tenant Law and Business Law.
The firm is based in central Brighton and aims to shed the clichéd image of firms of solicitors. Our staff have a wide variety of interests, both professionally and personally, and the aim is to offer a dynamic, friendly and personal approach to all of our clients. Our firm is small enough to ensure that you can benefit personally from our one-to-one service on everyday matters, but is also experienced enough to deal with those larger problems that until now have been the domain of the larger corporate firms. We believe that this is reflected in the fact that our increasing client base comprises a wide range of clients from individuals to large businesses.
Our ethos centres around an informal approach and as a result we enjoy close relationships with a number of other local professionals in Brighton & Hove, including surveyors, barristers and developers. We find that these relationships benefit our clients greatly because of the understanding that has arisen between ourselves and the other professionals that you may require as part of the legal process.
For full details on all of the areas of Law we practise and will be able to help you with, please visit the remainder of our website. If you still have any queries, we will be only too pleased to hear from you.
