About Us

Phillips Solicitors incorporating Brain Chase Coles is a leading Hampshire law firm.

Our core value is to bring talented people together to achieve exceptional outcomes for our clients.

Phillips Solicitors was established in 1986. Brain Chase Coles Solicitors was established in 1995. Both firms merged on 1 February 2020.

The merger is an important step towards our goal of building the region’s strongest dynamic, full-service law firm, whilst maintaining the traditional values that both firms were built on.

The combined firm is based in the heart of Basingstoke at our Town Gate offices.

We have always believed in being innovative and getting involved with regional businesses and our community.  We pioneered the introduction of mediation services in Basingstoke and currently run the pro bono service for Citizens Advice Basingstoke, offering regular free legal advice sessions at their offices in The Discovery Centre, at Festival Place Shopping Centre.

We were also one of the first law firms in Hampshire to be awarded the Cyber Essentials accreditation. This is because we take cybersecurity seriously. Please click here for more information about cybersecurity.

We are recommended in The Legal 500, the largest and most prestigious in-depth survey of the UK legal market.
