We are a leading firm of Solicitors in South Lakeland with offices in Kendal, Windermere and Ambleside. We provide a wide range of services to our clients tailored to their specific needs and resources. We also provide specialist advice and a personal service to our individual clients.

Temple Heelis Solicitors has been serving individuals, families, businesses and communities in South Lakeland for several generations, almost 200 years in fact. We’ve come a long way since the days of William Heelis, who was married to children’s author and farmer, Beatrix Potter. William met Beatrix when she visited his office seeking legal advice for the purchase of a property and farmland in the Lake District. You can still visit William’s original office in Hawkshead where his predecessors founded his legal practice in 1822. W.H. Heelis & Co, went on to become Gatey Heelis, and that firm then merged with Temple & Bargh in the 1990’s to form Temple Heelis. We are proud of our history and heritage and feel we have retained many of the best traditional values that have served previous generations well.

We understand the delicate balance of our local mixed economy. We are familiar with the way people like to do business. Our specialists can help you manage, protect and grow your business, act for you when it comes to a business restructure or a sale of part or whole of the business, and help you manage the people within it.
