Protecting What's Important to You

A personal approach to looking after our client’s needs for over 130 years

About Us

A Personal Approach

Whether helping build a secure future for your family, dealing with the legal affairs of a loved one after their death, or protecting the interests of those unable to protect themselves, Moerans has been working with our clients since 1886 to provide a service that puts their needs first.

Originally established in High Holborn, Moerans moved to Edgware in 1932 and has since been run as a vibrant family firm with a reputation for personal service and quality. We set out to create a client-centred business; it’s what makes us different from other firms. We encourage everyone who works here to put themselves in their clients’ place. What do they want? What worries them, and how can we help them sort it out?

What People are Saying

“We would have been lost without you”

“Moerans Solicitors and Simon Shaffer in particular are not just solicitors they are White Knights helping those in times of trouble with their army of contacts and considerable knowledge of North West London and the surrounding areas. Thank you so much for your help over the years we would have been lost without you.”

Grant P

“Efficient and professional”

“One of the most efficient and professional firms I have ever worked with. Always answer the telephone calls without delays, unlike some other firms of solicitors I worked with and always there to help you in a case of attended exchange, help and guidance. I will happily recommend Moerans Solicitors.”

Eli B

“A very personalised service”

“Helpful, understanding, patient++, they offer a very personalised service – we were always specific individual clients and not just a reference number. We were so pleased with them the first time we used then for a Will, that we have been back twice more for conveyancing – always helpful and efficient.”
