Specialist legal services tailored for private and commercial clients

About The Firm

Payne Hicks Beach LLP is a firm of solicitors who take pride in building strong client relationships based on trust, integrity and the vision to succeed. 

At the heart of what we do is a deeply engaged connection with our clients – their lives, their businesses, their interests.

The firm’s long-standing reputation has been built on our family and private client work. Our authority in these fields and subsequent successes in litigation, immigration, property and commercial expertise, means we are regarded as one of the very best of the small number of firms in the UK that undertake this work at the highest level for clients across the world. This is complemented with a full suite of legal services for all personal and commercial needs.



Founded in 1770 our offices have remained at 10 New Square, Lincoln’s Inn, one of London’s finest squares and the seat of English law. 

Our long history has always celebrated the spirit of individuality; we have always been a law firm of people, servicing people. Throughout our history we have used innovation and creativity to challenge and find successful solutions for clients, at times shaping new laws, and always protecting client interests as though they are our own.

“A notable Partner at law firm Payne Hicks Beach is a person of intelligence, with a mind active and ever fervid for the good of their clients whose case they seem to make their own, and in the close of which they are seldom unsuccessful.” THE GENTLEMAN’S MAGAZINE, 1796


Skilled, imaginative, empathetic, committed and discreet. These are the hallmarks of our people.

Our solicitors are globally minded, forward-thinking and with a mastery of law who deliver success and security for our clients. Most importantly every member of staff at Payne Hicks Beach works tirelessly towards the aims and achievements of our clients.

Being active in our community is something that has always been important to us at Payne Hicks Beach.

Our firm is proud to support Coram’s Fields, a youth development and safe play space in the heart of Bloomsbury, just steps away from our office front door.  As their longest standing corporate partner, we work with them in three ways: fundraising efforts throughout the year, volunteering at their site and for their events and mentoring programmes for young people looking to pursue a career in law.
