    Have used this firm for many family matters in the past and found them to be very helpful and responsive. Just completed a conveyance with Jane Joseph and her team and the communication was excellent, the process smooth and cost was competitive. I recommend

    Neves recently undertook our conveyancing and did an excellent job; the communication from Charlene Shillingford and her team throughout the whole process was top notch - I don’t recall being kept so up to date during the selling and buying of a house before. Queries were handled quickly and with the minimum of fuss, even when ‘the other side’ were being ‘difficult’. I’ve no reservation in recommending Neves. My heartfelt thanks to Charlene and the conveyancing team for their diligence and care during what can be a fraught time.

    Haneef and Rosalind were amazing throughout this whole process. We were first time buyers and Haneef was always keeping us updated and replied to emails promptly. He also gave us good advice and cleared up any doubts or concerns we had. Our first purchase which was a forward chain, was the smoothest transition thanks to Haneefs conveyancing experience. Lovely company with wonderful staff! 🙂

    I left this review for a few months as I wanted to let everything settle down and get my own head space back. On behalf of myself and my family, I just wanted to express our heart felt thanks to Beth for navigating us through a difficult divorce and parenting matters. Perhaps a little unconventional because as a dad, my teenage daughter wanted to remain living with me and yet I was also the main earner. We trusted Beth to give us timely, clear and succinct advice, help challenge tactics from the other side and understand the needs of my daughter whilst protecting my independent assets. We are so pleased with the outcome of the issues and all of the initial objectives were met. Beth, the whole of my family (children and grandchildren too) cannot thank you and your team enough. We have our home and family life back, fun and normality have resumed and a lunatic puppy is in place to help us heal and grow. Having trust in professional people is crucial at such a difficult time in life, and feeling that you have a solicitor of such high calibre took some pressure away when it was hard to deal with everything else. There were times that I felt Beth carried me through the process and times where I almost asked you to make decisions for me. It is a messy process, people get hurt and tears flow but thank you for your professionalism and understanding.

    We were first time buyers and unsure what to do and where to turn. Haneef and Rosalind put our minds at ease and were always available to answer any questions we had. The cost for their legal advice and conveyance was very competitive. I would highly recommend Neves, especially their conveyancing team. Thank you for your help throughout this process. Absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t ask for more. Thank you!!!! 👍

Our History

In January 1867 Queen Victoria was less than halfway through her 63 year reign. In the UK, the streets were full of horses.  Gentlemen wore frock coats and wing collars whilst ladies sported voluminous skirts supported by hoops, petticoats, and or crinolines. There were no cars, no aeroplanes; no telephones and no computers. But what, you may ask, has this to do with business today?

Well, in Luton, a gentleman by the name of Walter Neve opened a solicitor’s office. Our firm, now called Neves Solicitors LLP, has offices in Milton KeynesLuton and Harpenden, making us 150 years old.

However, it is not just the firm that is long established. At least one local family, the Cathcarts is able to proudly describe Neves as their ‘family solicitors’ for the past three generations. The Cathcarts have used Neves for both private and commercial property work on numerous occasions over the years. As Mrs Theresa Cathcart recalls; “Members of my family have used Neves for three generations. Their charm, politeness and efficiency combined with expertise in the latest aspects of law have meant that choosing Neves to conduct our legal business is our first and simplest choice.”
