About Us

Always approachable, helpful and professional

Good advice from a great local firm

Thomson Hayton Winkley have been looking after families and businesses in the South Lakes and beyond for over 150 years and our strong team lawyers and support staff are dedicated to producing the best possible results for our clients. With a high proportion of our work coming from long established satisfied clients and personal recommendations, you can be sure of a high standard of service.

Our highly experienced and qualified lawyers are specialists in their own areas of the law, so that you know you will be getting the right person for the job.

We are committed to providing clients with clear, jargon-free advice and an efficient, friendly and cost effective service – working with you to resolve the legal issues that may impact on your private or working life.

If you are looking for reliable, professional and approachable solicitors who will proactively manage your case and put your needs first – look no further.

With offices in Kendal, Windermere, Kirkby Lonsdale & at J36 Rural Auction Centre (The Rural Law Practice), plus appointments available in Grange over Sands and home visits available on request, we are well placed to meet the needs of clients living in Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire.  We also act for families and businesses all over the UK and abroad, embracing technology to make things easier.

We are proud of our local roots and for being part of the local community.  Our strong rural and farming client base benefits from the specific expertise we have at our Rural Law Practice branch.  The importance of the tourism and hospitality industry to the area is also recognised, which is why we are a Strategic Partner of Cumbria Tourism and support all that they do.

Winning the best Professional Services Business in the North at the Rural Business Awards 2021/22  made us very proud and is a great recognition of all the hard work that our lawyers and support staff do.
