About Swan Craig Solicitors

Swan Craig Solicitors are an employment solicitors firm (as employment law specialists) but we also advise on commercial law.  Based in Bristol, we advise clients across the UK representing those small to large businesses in the private sector and also individuals.

We offer a personalised service so that your legal matter is handled from start to finish with continuity, including meetings out of hours where required and subject to your location, we can come to you.  We also offer retainer services to provide legal advice for a fixed fee.

When looking to find a solicitor, you want someone to provide practical and understandable advice, (it goes without saying who knows their specialism) and that is us.
