We are pleased to announce that WBW Solicitors have been shortlisted in this year’s Top 150 Businesses in Devon and Cornwall, complied by the Western Morning News. The list is created on an annual basis and is ranked by the number of employees within an organisation. The data is taken from Companies House approximately 6-12 months prior to the publication date. WBW is listed in position 149 on the list, with 153 staff members, however due to recent mergers with offices in both Launceston and Paignton, we now have in excess of 200 employees across the firm. We are 1 of only 5 law firms to make the 2017 Top 150 List, making us one of the largest practices in Devon and Cornwall. With our extensive resources and broad expertise we are now more ready than ever to provide a consistent, high quality service to our clients, whatever their needs may be.

After nearly 200 years of business, this is the first time we have been featured on the list, along with 16 other new entrants. We are extremely proud to be listed alongside some of the biggest names in the region, such as CDS Limited and Flybe Group PLC. However, despite our recent expansion WBW still pride ourselves on our high quality advice, exceptional service and cost effective legal solutions. We are very much a high street law firm and will remain embedded in the local communities surrounding our offices. Together all 150 companies, and many of the smaller businesses, help to provide employment to those in the region and also bring about innovation and much needed technological advances. This has been crucial to the success of our local economies and it has helped to maintain stability in the South West despite what is happening in the political landscape further afield. As we continue to grow, we hope to be able to maintain a position in the top 150 businesses across the region and continue to be a part of the diverse and flourishing business ecosystem that helps to make our region so great.
