Legal Services for individuals and businesses in the Lake District

A new approach to legal services

Every legal problem is unique, and deserves a detailed and personalised approach. 

Working with Lakeland Law won’t be like working with a solicitors’ firm (as is traditional).

You’ll only ever talk directly with Graham King, never to an assistant, receptionist, trainee, junior lawyer or administrator.

You’ll get consistent and appropriate legal advice, as your case is handled directly by me from beginning to end.

All done at a time and place that works best for you.

Wherever possible I will work on a fixed fee basis, so you’ll know in advance what the charge for my work is going to be.

Lakeland Law is different


Graham graduated in Law from Oxford University and qualified as a barrister at Gray’s Inn, London. He now lives in the Lake District, and works directly with local clients on a wide range of legal issues.


Graham works at times that suit you, including evenings and weekends. Any meetings required can be in the location that works best for you within the Lake District or, if you prefer, at his office in Braithwaite, near Keswick.


With no office or staff overheads to cover, working with Graham will typically save you money. Most of his work is done on a fixed fee basis so you know what costs to expect in advance.


You’ll always communicate directly with Graham

"I would like to express my sincere thanks for all your assistance, without which I am sure I would not have achieved such a successful result."
