Pearne & Co has ceased trading, following the decision of the firm's Partners to move to another law firm, Star Legal Limited.


When did Pearne & Co cease trading?

Pearne & Co ceased trading on 30 September 2017.  The firm no longer provides services to clients and is no longer authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.


Why did Pearne & Co cease trading?

Increasingly, we were finding that clients needed a wider range of legal services than we could provide.  Our Partners decided that it made better sense to work within a larger, full-service law firm.  So, after 11 years running Pearne & Co, the Partners decided to close Pearne & Co and move to Star Legal.


Has Pearne & Co merged with Star Legal?

No.  Pearne & Co has not merged with, or been acquired by, Star Legal.


What should I do if I need help with a matter that Pearne & Co dealt with for me?

You can contact Stephen Pearne or Helen Pearne at Star Legal, and they will be happy to help you from there. Alternatively, you are free to instruct any other law firm that you choose.


Can Stephen Pearne or Helen Pearne still act for me?

Absolutely! Stephen and Helen will be pleased to act for old and new clients at Star Legal. The only difference is that your relationship will be with Star Legal, instead of Pearne & Co.
