Whether you are about to set up your first business, or need advice on a specific issue, we can help.

Kerry Underwood has over 40 years’ experience of running his own business, so it's not just the law that we can advise about.

Underwoods Solicitors are Hemel Hempstead Business Ambassadors. The Ambassadors are a group of both large and small businesses encouraging investment into the area by publicising the fact that it is a great place to live and work.

We give a free introductory meeting to discuss your business needs and are happy to visit your place of business. This is not time-limited – we will spend as long as you want!

We know that legal costs are important and often high and put many businesses off of asking solicitors to deal with matters for them.

We will give you a fixed price quote for work that you would like us to do for you.

If you need to go to court we will give you a fixed quote for each stage of the case and consider all types of funding, including no win-lower fee agreements and outside help for you from third party funders.

When it comes to funding and costs, no-one knows more than Kerry Underwood, author of 5 books on the subject and the UK’s acknowledged expert in this field.

We can never guarantee the outcome of a court case, but we can guarantee the price.
