About Us

Established in 1885 Dunn & Baker has been providing legal services to private clients and the business communities of Exeter for over 100 years with offices in Exeter, Cullompton and Newton Abbot. We have the resources to help our clients meet the challenges that they face in the legal world of the 21st century.

We are loosely grouped into departments, but not so rigidly as to ‘forbid’ overlapping. We firmly believe that wherever possible, clients prefer, and should have, a single point of contact within the firm to help build a strong relationship and rapport. We believe this strategy enables us to make the best use of the wide variety and depth of expertise that exists within the firm.

We hold a Legal Aid Agency contract for Family and are panel members of:-

  • Resolution Accredited Specialist
  • Family Law Accredited
  • Children Law Accredited
  • Collaborative Lawyer
  • Community Legal Service
  • Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners
  • Solicitors for the Elderly (member: Nick Penwell)
  • Probate Section of Law Society
  • APIL

We are IT friendly but not chained to it. It is a tool and not a Master. All our systems are there to ensure that the legal advice we provide is delivered in the most effective manner and in a way that ensures the client is always kept fully informed.

We seek to deliver value for money, rather than cut ‘cost’ corners.
