About us

SO Legal was established in 2016 and takes its name from the company’s two founders – Hamed Ovaisi and Jamie Salvidge, who bring a wealth of legal experience and a passion for the business.

Dynamic and innovative. A different type of law firm.

Over the past five years, we have expanded our footprint with offices in London, Brighton, Eastbourne, Hastings, and Uckfield, handling thousands of matters with a growing collection of clients including business owners, property developers, retail chains, sports teams, and private individuals.

Our culture

Everything we do is focused on the client, and we keep you informed throughout the process. We aim to bring a fresh perspective and infectious energy to every relationship. 

As we continue to grow as a law firm, so does the number of languages we speak across our offices.

We focus heavily on the importance of good communication and benefit from the diversity of our team every day. We have solicitors who speak various languages, including Arabic, English, French, Gujarati, Hebrew, Persian and Russian.

We are always open and transparent in our legal advice to clients. If we feel we can’t make a difference or think there is another law firm that might be a better fit for what you need, we will point you in the right direction.

A smarter approach to law

The legal industry has been slow to adapt to a fast-changing world. We’re not just embracing change – we’re leading it. Through our involvement with Barclays Eagle Lab and LawTech, we are proud to be at the forefront of the sector's latest technological advances.

We aim to go beyond traditional law and use the latest technology to complement our in-house expertise, enhancing and streamlining legal services delivery and providing outstanding results for our clients.

Price transparency

Our approach to fees at SO Legal is to be open and transparent regarding the fees you will pay. Our solicitors will communicate with you from the outset and discuss other available funding options, such as cover under an insurance policy.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority requires all law firms to detail charges and fee structures for certain types of work.

Our charging policy relating to grant of probate, employment tribunals, debt recovery and residential conveyancing is set out here.
