Solicitors in Bridgend


Bridgend, or Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr in Welsh, is an important market town to the West of Cardiff lying between the River Ogmore and the River Ewenny. The settlement is believed to date back to before Roman times, but much of the local history begins in that period as the town made a useful stopping point on the way to or from the Roman harbour at Neath.

As well as being an agricultural centre, Bridgend thrived for over two hundred years with revenue generated by the coal fields situated nearby in the South Wales Valleys. However as it had no coal reserves of its own, the area was quick to recover from the demise of coal in the late 1980’s with the economy rapidly diversifying into manufacturing and services. The Ford plant at Bridgend has recently received major reinvestment, and is largely considered one of the best engine production facilities in the world. The area has a growing tourism trade, acting as a hub for tourists looking to explore the heritage coast and nearby South Wales Valleys.

Legal services in Bridgend

Despite all this industry on its doorstep, many of the solicitors in Bridgend focus on residential and family law areas, including probate and wills, divorce law and separations as well as matters relating to the care of children. With considerable employment in the manufacturing industries, much of the workforce is unionised and receives legal representation in some form from their union. That said, the area has a thriving retail sector, and as such some solicitors in Bridgend do offer employment law services.

There are some solicitors in Bridgend offering commercial litigation and other business services including licensing applications and legal advice. That said, the vast majority do focus on residential and private law matters. Solicitors in Bridgend also offer conveyancing services for both residential and commercial premises.
