Novello Law was founded by partners who, having worked for large law firms, decided to create a firm that is flexible in its approach and where partner engagement is paramount. We believe that your lawyer should be accessible, approachable and part of your team.

We are proud to be based in central Cardiff, with easy access to the city centre and the M4. However, we embrace technology and service clients across the UK and overseas.

Partner Engagement

At Novello Law we offer our clients partner engagement, rather than partner oversight, and a dynamic and commercial approach to corporate and property law. We do not try to be all things to all people, but to be the right support and legal partner for those to whom our services are most valuable.

We make a point of getting to know our clients, their business and their commercial objectives. In doing so, we believe that peace of mind, value for money and efficiency are assured.
