Welcome to BGW Solicitors

An independent and highly respected law firm based in Somerset, we provide legal services throughout the South West and beyond. With offices in Cheddar, Shepton Mallet and Castle Cary we aim to provide a truly local, personal service with specialists in each office.

We were formed over 20 years ago as a result of a merger between Bartlett and Co (established in Shepton Mallet in 1958), Austin and Bath (established in Glastonbury in the 19th century and owned at the time by Nick Gooding) and Robin Weelen and Co (established in Castle Cary in 1978). Nick Gooding retired in 2004 but Bill Bartlett and Robin Weelen are still partners in the firm.

We're here to help. Let's start.

Vicky dealt with the conveyancing on my now late mother's property at a very traumatic time. I can't praise her high... enough. She was efficient, timely, friendly and letters easily understood. In all my years of moving around the country, and working in estate agencies, never have I known a solicitor so effective. Well done and thank you to the whole more

We have used BGW for conveyancing several times over the course of several years. Each transaction has gone through... very smoothly They have shown fine attention to detail. They have provided very prompt communication both oral and written and have always been very responsive to any questions we have raised. When needed they have applied pressure to the other parties to obtain the necessary information. We would unreservedly recommend using this more

I used BGW solicitors conveyancing services back in Spring 2018 and they were absolutely fantastic. They were fast and... professional and made my house purchase a completely seamless experience. Despite changing my mind very close to completion on one property and then having some issues with leasehold of the property I was selling, they were incredibly understanding even when I was very stressed!I am so grateful for the effort they put in to to ensure that all avenues were explored when things became complicated. It is because of their thorough service and experience that the sale of my property happened as quickly as it did.Despite only choosing them initially because they were local, I would now recommend this company to anyone buying/selling a property and will certainly use them in the more
