Excellent hard working solicitors


We instructed ESN for our conveyance, Stephen was absolutely amazing. He was so on the ball and kept us fully informed throughout. There were other solicitors in our chain who were useless but Stephen kept pushing them to act and respond to his queries. He went above and beyond what I would expect from a solicitor. I would definitely recommend ESN for your legal needs.

Probate and conveyancing


Would definitely recommend ESN solicitors. After the loss of my mother ESN dealt with my application for probate to enable me to sell mom's house .this process was smooth and efficient. I was also able to use one of their solicitors to handle the conveyancing, this also was carried out with minimum fuss.
Thanks go to.
Jane hazel and Jonathon Atkins and their associates.
Would recommend them to anyone

Purchased property


I had a great experience in purchasing my property. Majid, Navneet and the rest of the team were very helpful and they provided a great service. Navneet provided me with all the relevant information, responded to me in a timely manner and kept me upto date with all the work/progress of my case. I received a good quote for the legal services and I was definitely happy in paying for the service I received. I would definitely recommend there services to anyone who wishes to purchase a property.

Good conveyancing service


We used ESN on the recommendation of our estate agents for the purchase of our first property. Jonathan was always quick to respond to inquiries and kept us updated along the way (with a little bit of prodding!) He was great at chasing up our vendors' solicitor and was able to meet our desired moving in day. The costs were clear from the start and fixed. Overall would recommend.

Jonathan Atkins was fantastic, and by far the most efficient conveyancing lawyer I have ever used. He replied promptly to queries and ensured our conveyancing was processed as speedily as possible. I highly recommend his services.

Solicitors who work at ESN Solicitors

  • Laurie Neale

    Laurie is a Senior Partner at ESN and has practised law since 1981. With over 35 years as a Criminal Defence expert, Laurie is undoubtedly one of the most experienced and well-known solicitors in his field across the UK. He has earned a reputation for robustly defending his clients in a number of high- profile serious cases, which have received national media attention and has seen him associated with a number of celebrity clients. These successes earned him membership onto the Very High Cost Cases (VHCC) panel – a mark of excellence for a lawyer that proves his ability to handle the most complex cases.

  • Safeer Choudhry

    An expert in the property market, Safeer has over 15 years experience practising law and joined ESN in 2012. He regularly acts on behalf of investors and national high-street banks throughout the country, but has represented a variety of clients. These range from one-off cases to repeat professional investors, and Safeer continues to act on behalf of household names and high-profile individuals. Often invited to speak to public investment groups and forums, while also dealing with large auction houses throughout the UK – Safeer’s expertise has allowed him to assist vendors and purchasers of property. He works closely with a number of estate agents, including the largest in the Midlands. As Head of Department, Safeer is responsible for making sure that fee earners continue to operate at a high level; that the Department retains its Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) standard and that ESN remain on the bank panels – as one of just a few firms in the area that are involved.

  • Adrian Stickland

    As one of the UK’s most prominent commercial lawyers, Adrian has been responsible for handling multi-million pound transactions during his well-established legal career. Some of his most noteworthy deals have seen him represent international clients, including acting on behalf of a US pilot to mortgage an aeroplane – but back on home soil, Adrian’s accolades extend to assisting a client in purchasing a large quarry and taking the lead on a worldwide freezing order. Under Adrian’s stewardship, the practice has expanded from just two fee earners to a workforce of over 40 and he continues to remain focused on the commercial sector.

  • Denise Billington

    Denise is one of a few original employees at ESN and has remained loyal to the company for some 30 years. She joined the practice straight after leaving school and in her own words has ‘worked through the ranks’. Denise is responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of the building and running of the office. The ‘mother of the firm’, she ardently looks after the workforce and is also involved with recruitment. When interviewing new solicitors, Denise looks for three features: the right personality, legal know-how and a genuine personality – a skill to be proud of when all the people she has interviewed still remain here at ESN. More than an office manager, Denise can add ‘Project Manager’ to her bow, after donning a hard hat and work boots in 2012 when ESN moved to its new home.
