About Brooke-Taylors Solicitors
The practice has been established in Buxton for over 150 years. Until 2010 the practice traded as a partnership but since that time we have traded as a limited company.
We are well regarded and aim to provide a friendly, fair and expert service. Much of our work is either for existing clients or by recommendation from existing clients. We have 4 principal departments: Property, Private Client, Family and Litigation.
We are well-placed to serve clients from Macclesfield, Leek, Bakewell, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Whaley Bridge, New Mills, Glossop and the High Peak. Particularly given the advance of technology we continue to act for clients or their families who have moved away and we have clients throughout the UK and abroad.
