About Us

Welburn & Co is the trading name of Peter Welburn, who has practiced as a solicitor for more than 30 years. Established in 1996, Welburn & Co are a niche commercial law practice servicing the needs of business clients.

Unlike a conventional commercial law practice with a large number of partners and support staff, Peter’s practice methodology is to stay “lean and mean”. If the matter on which a client seeks advice is not within his expertise, Peter will aim to provide the client with a managed solution. This is achieved by Peter engaging other lawyers and law firms possessing the relevant quality and expertise. Crucially, Peter remains involved at all times, thereby ensuring that the service a client receives is not in any way compromised. It also leaves a client to get on with its business in the knowledge that its legal affairs are in good hands.

This style of practice has proven very attractive to clients who do not have their own in-house legal department or who, for whatever reason, do not have the time or inclination to deal directly with the larger law practice.

Welburn & Co are able to advise on the range of subject areas that a typical business may encounter, including corporate and commercial contracts, intellectual property, employment law, real estate and litigation matters.

The practice has a particular specialisation in respect to interactive media delivered across a range of platforms including Broadcast media, the Internet, Fixed and Mobile telephony. Regulatory Compliance and contract related advice is provided to parties who provide Adult, Gambling and Competition services, including their suppliers.

Whatever the need, we are able either to deal with the matter ourselves or to work with others in providing an appropriate, managed, solution. We do not compromise on quality nor do we seek to win work based purely on being the cheapest. We aim to provide or procure for clients a level of service that is of high quality and cost-effective.

As a practice, Welburn & Co have a number of core values which permeate all aspects of our work. These values include freedom of speech/expression, supporting businesses to grow and be profitable, consumer protection, equality and diversity.
