Award-winning law firm Porter Dodson arrives in Exeter

UK Top 200 law firm, Porter Dodson, based across Somerset, Devon and Dorset, has opened its newest office in Southernhay, Exeter.

Since its inception in 1997 following the merger of two regional firms, Porter Dodson has seen continued growth both geographically and in its service offering, as well as the recruitment of experienced and expert advisors along the way.

This latest move into Exeter and further into the South West is expected to further build on the growth of the firm’s corporate and commercial offering, as well as supporting its expansion of Private Client services and nurturing its pool of talent.

David Culshaw, Partner and office lead in Exeter, said: “The move into Exeter is really exciting for Porter Dodson and is a logical step due to our current geography and our existing relationships with a number of Devon and Exeter based clients and professionals.  As well as expanding our footprint this move will make life more convenient for our existing clients and contacts.”
