Exceptional growth continues for Woodstock Legal Services with expansion into Wales

Woodstock Legal Services, known for its innovative and award-winning approach, is set to expand its presence into Wales in 2024 with the appointment of Cardiff-based Levi Rees who joins the firm as a consultant to spearhead this expansion.

This move aligns with the firm’s broader strategy to grow geographically across England and Wales, building on its success in Dorset, Yorkshire, London, and the Midlands.

Specialist consultant Levi Rees joins Woodstock Legal Services’ Residential Property team, having spent five years working across South Wales with highly respected local law firms before moving to the more forward-thinking consultancy approach recently consulting for a legal 500 law firm.

Levi works on a broad range of residential property and conveyancing matters and specialises in both Freehold and Leasehold sales and purchases, new build purchases, acting for developers as well as dealing with transfers of equity and remortgages. Levi has also acted on a number of acquisitions relating to care homes, Residential Childrens’ Homes and care for the elderly. Levi is also able to advise on non-statutory Lease Extensions and surrender and regrant of Leases. Levi also has the expertise to deal with high-net worth property related matters.

Levi’s appointment is Woodstock’s first in Wales, and the latest in its geographical expansion across England and Wales, with recent hires joining the firm across Dorset, Yorkshire, and the Midlands.

In a year which marks Woodstock’s 10 year anniversary, 2024 will also see further expansion across the regions as more lawyers leave traditional law firms and turn to the more modern consultancy-based approach to offering quality legal services to clients.

Speaking on his appointment, Levi said:

“From the moment that I spoke with Carly (Jermyn) I felt as ease knowing that joining the firm also aligns with my personal values. I am delighted to be leading the firm’s vision across Wales and our commitment to providing a fresh approach to law.”

Recently, Levi has been honoured by being awarded Consultant Conveyancer of the Year 2023 (South Wales) at this year’s Legal Awards 2023.

Discussing his approach to residential conveyancing, Levi said:

“Over the past years, I have worked exclusively in residential conveyancing which means I have such incredible longstanding relationships with every stage of the property profession including clients, agents and intermediaries.

“These relationships have been built one by one, hard-earned by consistently providing a five-star level of services that clients should expect from their legal advisers.”

Carly Jermyn, CEO at Woodstock Legal Services, said:

“From the moment I spoke to Levi, I knew he was Woodstock through and through. His infectious enthusiasm for achieving the best service for his clients is a rare commodity. Over the last nine years, we have grown a strong client following across Wales. Levi’s experience and hard-earned connections across Wales perfectly align with our growth objectives. I’m really looking forward to seeing Levi leading the firms’ vision across Wales.”

Woodstock Legal Services has been on an upward trajectory since its inception in Canford Cliffs, Poole, in 2014. The firm now boasts an impressive team of over 45, attracting top legal talent from regions like Dorset, Devon, Hampshire, Yorkshire, London, the Midlands, and Wales. The firm’s growth can be attributed to its flexible, consultancy-based approach to legal work and unwavering commitment to client service.

Carly continued:

“The expansion into Wales just feels like the next natural step in our exciting and ambitious plans for 2024 and beyond. I’ve been blown away by the interest from lawyers of all seniority wanting to join us across the length and breadth of the country. Having this impact on a national scale is something I’m really proud of. ”

Speaking about joining Woodstock, Levi concluded:

“Since joining the firm, the support, marketing, and operational teams have supported me during my early stages. The support and compliance teams will continue to support me during my role to allow me to focus on what matters most, which is the client! I am also excited to be working with the senior management team to support the firms’ objectives for 2024 and beyond.”
