Devon & Plymouth Chamber welcomes GA Solicitors as new Patron

Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce that GA Solicitors, one of our most well-respected members and collaborators, has stepped up to become a Patron.

GA Solicitors operates from its two offices in Plymouth and Bath, providing specialist expert advice to businesses, families and individuals across the region and the wider UK.

The firm is centered around people, which is evidenced in the people they employ, the values they promote and in the support the team provides the local community.

This new and exciting partnership with the Devon & Plymouth Chamber aims to strengthen the firm’s already hugely well-respected name in the city and beyond.

David Wallis, managing partner of GA Solicitors, commented: “Having been a longstanding member of Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, we are delighted to now expand on this relationship and become a patron.

“The patronage offers us many opportunities to further support the business community and to develop links with other organisations in the county.

“The Chamber’s objectives are to help businesses connect, grow and succeed. The support they provide businesses is essential and we are pleased to be offering both our time and resources to help them achieve these important aims.”

The Lexcel-accredited LLP is structured around a number of practice areas – each comprising its own specialist department – including business disputes, commercial property, company commercial, dispute resolution, employment, family, energy, personal injury, residential conveyancing and wills, trusts and probate.

The firm employs some of the most experienced and well-regarded lawyers in the region, as proven by its rankings in The Legal 500, Chambers High Net Worth, and Chambers UK.

The history of GA Solicitors dates back to 1801, providing it with a rich heritage, traditional values and an approach to client service which is second to none.

In 2014, the company changed its name from Gill Akaster LLP Solicitors to GA Solicitors, accompanied by a refreshed logo.

Today, GA Solicitors plays a key role in the business community and prides itself on an effective combination of highly-qualified staff, one-to-one client service and a friendly and accessible approach.

As well as providing expert advice, the team also supports tens of charities across the region. These include St Luke’s Hospice, Plymouth Children in Poverty, Tavistock Memory Café, Young Enterprise Devon and Bowel Cancer West.

Patrons of the Chamber are some of the best-known and respected names in the business community. They are woven into the Chamber’s extensive lobbying activities and become one of our region’s principal voices.

Chamber Chief Executive Stuart Elford said: “We could not be more thrilled that GA Solicitors has decided to become a Patron of the Devon & Plymouth Chamber. After more than two centuries, they are a hugely well-respected name in the city and beyond.

“By putting their clients first, and continuing to invest heavily in their people and technology, GA Solicitors is able to provide the best possible service for those who need it most.

“The sheer breadth of the firm’s knowledge and their position as Patron underlines just what an asset they are and will continue to be to our members.

“Our Patrons play a unique role in developing the future of our region and the Chamber is far stronger with GA Solicitors’ support and Patronage.”
