About the Business

Aletta Shaw Solicitors was established almost two decades ago. Since then we have built our reputation as a firm, due to our friendly, client focused attitude. Our second office in Blackheath is situated in the heart of Blackheath, which is easily accessible from central London, Canary Wharf, Kent, Essex and the South East.

Our approach to legal services is modern and innovative and as a result we obtain consistently good results for our clients. We have embraced the use of technology to speed up and diversify the way we communicate with you. As well as face to face meetings we are able to offer telephone advice and Skype consultations.

Almost all of our fees are at fixed prices so that you know where you are. You will find our staff approachable and sensitive to your needs, whilst robust against the opposition where the need arises.

Business Services

Medical Negligence

When we’re ill, we place our trust in doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to help us get better. More often than not, the healthcare we receive is excellent, but sometimes, standards slip and mistakes are made. After all, human errors do happen. For example:

  • Your GP may have failed to investigate or diagnose your condition properly.
  • Your medical treatment may have been unreasonably delayed, through no fault of your own.
  • You may have suffered from disfiguration or scarring as a result of surgery.
  • You may even have developed bedsores, MRSA or C Difficile, because of unhygienic and unsanitary conditions in hospital.

Property and Conveyancing


Aletta Shaw's dedicated property law team is based in our Bexleyheath office and provides conveyancing services to Kent and South East London. The team have expertise in residential and commercial conveyancing ranging from the sale of the family home to much larger corporate acquisitions. We pride ourselves in providing a highly professional service and a personal and tailored approach to client care.

At Aletta Shaw the person who will have primary responsibility for all your property work will be a solicitor or licensed conveyancer. This is not always the case at other legal practices. Clients of some firms are told that their work is being carried out by a 'lawyer'. Many people are not aware that the general term 'lawyer' does not necessarily mean that person actually holds any legal qualifications.


We offer fixed fees for all residential property transactions and also where possible for commercial transactions.

For those who find the process stressful you will find us approachable and always able to take time to explain things in language which is clear and easy to understand. As one client described the service they received "hard work, professionalism, quick response, swift turnaround and more important your ‘can do’ attitude which made the process painless for us."


  • Freehold and Leasehold residential property.
  • transfer of equity.
  • remortgages.
  • lease extensions.
  • Commercial property.
Company Commercial Solicitors

Our Company Commercial team has a wealth of experience across all areas of Company, Commercial and Business Law. We are practical and robust in our approach to business and legal problems in order to achieve the best outcomes for our clients. Legal expertise combined with a deep understanding of practical commerce makes Aletta Shaw the ideal choice across London and the South East.

Common business principals run through all the work we do, however we know that each client is different with their own unique set of circumstances. We carefully tailor our advice to meet the specific needs of each business. Our client care is second to none.

Aletta Shaw are pleased to be in the strong position of providing a first class central London service for a low cost local price across the full spectrum of Company and Commercial law. Our overheads are much lower than central London firms to whom our legal knowledge and expertise compares. We are able to provide some fixed fee services and a fixed cap on fees for more complex work such as company purchases and sales.

After the break down of a relationship it can be a very emotional and stressful situation. Aletta Shaw Solicitors can offer practical solutions to any problems you might encounter and can offer legal advice and support through the legal process. We offer video meetings on Skype, so you can have a face to face meeting without having to leave work or home. It is very important to seek independent legal advice as early as possible to prevent you taking actions that could later prejudice your position.

Divorce: The breakdown of a marriage can be a distressing time for everyone involved. Our aim is to get you through the legal stages as quickly and as painlessly as possible. The first step is to call and book an appointment with one of our solicitors.

Financial Issues: If there are financial issues to be dealt with on your divorce/dissolution of civil partnership, we can help you as much or as little as you wish, depending upon your budget, from initial advice through to the complicated and lengthy process of bringing an application through the courts.

Children: If your relationship has broken down and you are having difficulty agreeing arrangements for your children, court proceedings may not always be necessary and should be a last resort. We will first try to help you resolve any dispute through negotiation or mediation. If court proceedings become necessary then we can help you prepare your application, any statements you are required to make and can arrange for expert reports if necessary, such as DNA testing or medical reports. We can guide you through the court process and arrange for you to be represented at any hearings.

If you are acting for yourself we are happy to provide you with advice from time to time or to help you prepare documents so that you can keep your costs to a minimum.

And many more!!!

The excellent company been using for years. Sue Carey and Efe and great members of staff. All costs were provided upfront so no nasty surprise at the end. Well, don't be Aletta Shaw.
