Taylor Rose MW Solicitors Info
Taylor Rose MW Ltd Solicitors in Peterborough & London: Review
All across our site you'll see the stated goal of 'choice for clients'. To that end we partner with large and small, old and new, private and commercially focused, single and multi-office, barrister and solicitor, niche speciality and huge case range firms all over the UK and ROI.
Taylor Rose MW actually started off as a bit of a conundrum for us. They are relatively a large firm, but we've never found them aloof. They were a niche firm, but have spread out both in case types and locations. Their recent history is packed with more changes and growth than we typically report regarding our 100+ year established firms. They handle legal issues for individuals and businesses - but have services for other legal professionals such as costs drafting. They have a standard central office chain going on, but also a network of branded independent consultancies. And so on, and so on.
This could make it difficult for anyone to research and form an overall opinion. Deciding what information is useful, relevant, or up-to-date is a considerable task. For example, customer reviews from only a few years back could be about a different firm that has since been merged into Taylor Rose MW with the review page simply re-titled.
When considering whether we should recommend this particular firm to people, the first thing we noticed was that they didn't seem to have the greatest scores on common review sites. At the time of writing they were 3.7/5 on Yell.com, 7.4/10 on TrustPilot, and 3.9/5 on Google. However, the individual ratings themselves were mostly 5 stars or 1 star. Not 2s, 3s or 4s. Sifting further it appears that people are generally overjoyed with the service provided in every way except for when it comes to conveyancing. So much so, that if Taylor Rose MW were to give up conveyancing they would probably have 5☆ scores across the entire web.
But this is true for a huge number of firms that handle property matters. The largest conveyancer in the UK is Countrywide Conveyancing who are currently rated 2.2/5 on Google out of 150+ reviews. The problem is that most people feel their house sale takes too long, most people wish they'd got more more money or paid less, most people feel a little fobbed off by their solicitor (that they've been calling three times a day for two months straight!) ... Does that mean reviews are no help? Of course not. It's just that for solicitors like Taylor Rose MW who handle a wide range of case types, you really need to dig in a read a bunch of them if you're going to get a clear picture.
Those words from Taylor Rose MW are actually unusual. Whilst most companies such as Argos, Asda, The AA, or Shell hope to make you a life long customer - these days solicitors typically don't think that far ahead because most people rarely hire a solicitor more than once a decade. This sort of thinking could therefore be called 'old school'. However:
A very direct reference to the notion that the many law firms still have elderly men behind large desks who love putting on wigs and cloaks and discussing protocol. Those definitely still exist. Recently I was on the phone with a solicitor who genuinely said the words "Oh, that internet thing? No we don't do that." Taylor Rose MW do Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and even YouTube.
I'm pretty sure most of you perked up at that last one. Being able to actually see and hear their staff? I'll bet many of you disappeared off to watch a few videos before continuing with this article. There are staff profiles with photos and direct contact details on the main website too, plus a page about their fundraising for the Little Miracles Charity.
There's a wide range of information articles available with step-by-steps and typical costs noted where possible. They even have an online legal document service at www.taylor-rose.net where you can create legal docs such as wills for a fixed price without having to visit the firm.
The words Taylor Rose MW use, the information available, the things they do, the openness, etc. simply doesn't happen much these days when the general aim is to get people to pick up the phone. They've clearly invested a lot of time, money, and effort into creating a useful, jargon-less website that has a function other than simply displaying brief sales-pitch-y paragraphs. The same goes for their social media activity.
I've been working with solicitors for over 20 years now and this setup impressed me. They provide so much information on their site, plus offer lower cost setups if clients can do some of the paper work themselves. Inviting them to join our panel was really a no-brainer. There is only one little 'snag' we need to address regarding names.
Taylor Rose MW have their origins based in legal costs. In 2004 they started with that specialist service under the name McCullagh & Co. Then in 2009 they branched out into other case types before taking over the property and commercial law firm Wilkinson & Co in 2012. They have partnered with KJ Commons in Workington to create an office and presence there. And more recently in 2015 they merged with Tucker Turner Kingsley Wood LLP which is where the MW in 'Taylor Rose MW Limited' comes from.
This means there are lots of different names and websites connected with the firm. Most of the old and merged websites now link to the current one. But there are others.
There are some individual online legal document creation sites such as the one I mentioned above and www.trl-online-wills.co.uk which is just for wills. There are also individual area sites such as www.taylor-rose-cumbria.co.uk for Taylor Rose's Cumbrian operations. If you go searching for their site, the main one should be listed at the top of the search results. But it will obviously depend on the search terms you used. www.taylor-rose.co.uk is the main one, but www.taylorrose.co.uk and both the dot com variants of www.taylor-rose.com and www.taylorrose.com are currently blank. I didn't even try adding the MW part on at this point. Obviously with all the hyphens and varying tlds as well, it is probably best to bookmark the main site once you know you are definitely on the right one. There are many variants you could accidentally type in and you absolutely don't want to end up in the wrong place when it comes to legal matters and money. Especially with all the property purchase fraudsters out there. Also note that the firm was formerly called TTKW not MW for many years. These are the same firm though. It's just rebranding after another merger.
General Notes: Usually if Legal Aid is possible we've mentioned it above, but you can always ask. We haven't looked in depth at their recruitment program so are unaware of any job vacancies available. For a career with Taylor Rose MW Solicitors it's best to visit the website (www.taylor-rose.co.uk), check opening hours, and find the correct phone/email contact details. Simply emailing a CV to reception looks lazy. Each law firm's Law Society and/or SRA number should be on their site, usually at the bottom of each page.
