Welcome to our Blog

At TV Edwards personal and social justice is our passion and has been embedded in everything we do since 1929.

Many of the cases we deal with help to shape the law, often holding authorities to account and scrutinising decisions that have an impact not only on our clients, but on society as a whole. 

In this blog, our expert lawyers look at the relevant and topical issues arising from the work they do.
