Chairman's welcome

I am very proud that Actons is a leading independent law firm in Nottingham.  

We spend time listening and getting to know our clients.  This makes our job much more enjoyable and helps you achieve your goals.

Based on that time spent getting to know you, our aim is to become your trusted advisor – whether that’s for your business or in a personal context.

Actons will continue to grow, whilst remaining a strong, independent law firm that builds long term relationships with our clients.  For you, that means you’ll continue to have access to the best advice, directly from some of the best lawyers.

I’m often asked what’s behind our ongoing success.  It’s got to be our strong, enthusiastic team who enjoy helping our clients, and making a difference.
