BMD Law Solicitors in Wavertree, Liverpool

BMD Law has been an unusual addition to the network. It states that it is different from other law firms, and certainly delivers on that promise.

The main solicitor of note in all this is Bernadette McDonald, who trained in Manchester primarily in commercial law. However, being originally from Liverpool, she came back to the city and set up a practice in a former coaching inn - The Lamb - a Grade II listed building in the heart of Wavertree Village.

This caught the attention of local journalists who interviewed her about the purchase. Some of Bernadette's quotables included:

BMD Law Solicitors

"Inside The Lamb, I have undone some of the 'modernisation' undertaken by the various breweries who have owned this fabulous building, and have started to lovingly restore the building to its former glory, carefully respecting its enormous history.

"As well as being the local solicitors' office for the next 30 years I hope The Lamb will continue to be a meeting place of the local people. I hope to re-establish the Wavertree Business Association and have the business people of Wavertree meet under 'The sign of The Lamb'. I am also mindful that Our Lady's parish social club has closed, and that the various pensioners' groups that used to meet there may now not have anywhere to go. The function room has been badly affected by neglect and various leaks, but I hope that this will be restored to glory in the next couple of months, so that I can invite the people of Wavertree in. We also hope to hold regular open days in the gardens for the local residents and children, and to invite the local schools (Our Lady's and Wavertree C. of E.) into the building."


Getting the general feel on this yet?

Describing themselves as a "young dynamic firm" as well as "experienced but youthful" on their website, BDMLaw may seem to be at odds with itself. On one hand, setting up in an old historic structure - on the other, wanting to push forward as something new and energetic. Can they blend the old stalwart law firm peace of mind with the concepts of a fast moving era? Ironically, only time will tell.

They state Property law as being the heart of everything at the firm. More than just conveyancing. A passion. The focus seems to be on speed, with the language of the site's property law information page using a multitude of speedy words such as 'fast', 'save time', 'quick', 'quickly', and 'quicker'. They quote the national average turnaround time on properties completing being 12 weeks, and their average as only 5 weeks. They handle transfers of equity, investment properties, commercial properties, mortgage panel work, and all for a fixed fee. They apparently have a calculator on their site, but we couldn't find it during this review check. Let us know if you find the relevant web page.

Personal injury gets only a small mention on the site, which is unusual as most firms that want injury cases generally want a lot of them. They are often easy to process, unlikely to require court work, and lucrative for the firms that take them on. (Many times we've seen the solicitor earn more money in legal fees than the client gets in compensation for actually being injured.) However, BMD's focus does seem to be on other case types as indicated in their on-site literature. They do mention the standard no win, no fee catchphrase - but there is no mention of a 100% compensation guarantee so make sure to ask if they will provide such for your particular case type. It is not always available.

They also handle a range of other private client work such as Will writing, Probate, Power of Attorney, disputes, debt matters, insolvency and so on. There is a section about their Family Law offerings such as divorce where base fee amounts are quoted, but also a promise of a free half hour no obligation appointment. This is with a "member of our staff who will be extremely experienced in dealing with family law" which may mean that it is not with an actual solicitor.

Their "Business Angel" setup grabs considerable focus once you've delved into the site. The BDM team will apparently provide business audits to identify possible risks. But beyond that, we get the impression that their business arm is pushing out towards more of a business 'community' in the area.

For example, they are sponsoring a Liverpool Fashion & Beauty Awards with clips popping up in YouTube with solicitor Bernadette McDonald talking at the event. There are also images of a teddy bear carrying the firm's logo going around being photographed with models.

Again, conversely, the firm's Blog headlines read as solid information pieces you would see on any standard solicitor blog. "The Process of Buying a Property", "Buying a House with your Partner: What you need to consider" and so on. But 1to1Legal are always after something different or something new. Choice is the key and so we present to you - BMD:Law

You many have noticed that they are even using a brand new TLD for their website in the .uk domain sales that kicked off not so long ago. We checked a few variants and the non-hyphenated www.bmdlaw.uk doesn't seem to work. www.bmdlaw.co.uk and www.bmdlaw.com both go to different firms, and www.bmd-law.co.uk doesn't exist either. As the .uk will take some time for people to get use to, we would recommend bookmarking the site once you know you are on the correct one.

General Notes: We haven't looked in depth at their recruitment program so are unaware of any job vacancies available. If you do want to build a career with BMD Law Solicitors, then it is best to visit their site and try to find the correct phone/email contact details set aside for such if they exist. (Emailing a CV to their reception looks lazy.) Due to the complexities of case funding and the constant government cuts, it is always best to ask about things such as Legal Aid up front. Lastly, each law firm should state a registration number with their respective Law Society and/or their SRA number. It's usually at the bottom of every page. - www.bmd-law.uk
