About Us

About Us

Welcome to Spearing Waite LLP, an open, dynamic and progressive law firm.

We are based in Leicester, at the heart of the East Midlands, but work in partnership with both national and international clients.  We offer expertise in Commercial Property, Planning, Construction & Engineering, Corporate & Commercial, Employment Law, Intellectual Property, Commercial & Property Dispute Resolution, including Personal Injury, Sports Law, Family Law and Private Client Services.

We deliver a partner-led service that focuses on building a relationship with you that will allow us to tailor our advice to your specific needs.  We have always believed that law is a people business which is why we have worked hard to attract lawyers and staff who have the right personality to fit into our close-knit team and thereby provide consistent friendly and trusted advice across all service areas.  Many firms boast of a positive and rewarding environment for staff and clients alike; we have independent auditors who recognise it as a fact. We can also count on our many loyal clients who recognise that our service is different from competitors. Below is what our clients say (taken from the Legal 500):


“highly efficient”

“pragmatic and reasonable”

“thorough and tenacious”

“stands up very well to the large London practices”

By instructing us you will benefit from a team that works together in one office and can provide a seamless service. You will not be sent to different offices in different cities!  You can visit us in our stunning new offices in the city centre, but we are just as willing to come to you.

The practice itself was formed from the merger of Parsons Waite (established in the nineteenth century) and Spearing and Co (established in 1973) on 1 May 1993. It converted to a limited liability partnership in 2011. It is run by the management team of Tom Bower and Jonathan Wheeler, but all partners and staff take an active part in the firm’s continuing development and growth. The firm continues to benefit from the recruitment of experienced associates and partners, many of whom have joined from large national practices where they felt stifled and unable to provide the kind of service their clients deserved. We also see organic growth as fundamental to development and through attracting high quality candidates as a result of our “hands on” training, have seen many of our trainee solicitors qualify into the practice and for some to become partners.

We also take our role in the community very seriously. As well as acting for local charities we have a proud record of raising substantial funds for them through a variety of events. Our staff also takes part in other community programmes such as Right to Read.

Looking for a law firm that is a unified team and delivers outstanding service? Whether you want to work with us or work for us …… get in touch.
