About Us

We are a focused and efficient team of highly experienced lawyers specialising in commercial property and construction law.

We chose the name plainlaw as it is our aim to provide clear, straightforward advice. Our current and future commitment is to provide a high quality,  responsive service but at  rates you would pay for a more junior lawyer at a larger firm. We try to anticipate client needs and work with clients to drive transactions through. Providing a good client service is important to us - delivering commercial solutions that reflect your needs.


We are delighted that this service continues to be recognised by The Legal 500 which has once again selected plainlaw as one of the leading firms for property work in the Thames Valley, Berks, Oxon, M4 / M40 region. The 2012 edition comments that "the commercial property offering at plainlaw solicitors attracts very high praise from clients". Previous editions have recognised our "smart, experienced, responsive and commercial" service (2010 edition), and highlighted our key strengths: "We also recommend Philip Horn at plainlaw solicitors, which provides ‘rapid responses’ and great value for money" (2008 edition).


We are also very pleased to be highly rated again by the Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession in its 2013 edition, with Philip Horn ranked as a leading individual who delivers a 'high level of service' capable of taking a 'pragmatic view' to achieve client objectives. Previous editions have recognised that "this firm's relatively small size is seen as a distinct advantage by clients, who enjoy the level of care they receive. Everyone's their number one client! Philip Horn is described as ‘immensely experienced and pragmatic’. He is celebrated by his clients for ‘simply telling it like it is’" (2009 edition).
