Kinver’s Solicitor

Posted on 16 August 2022

Introducing your Local Solicitor

Kinver has a Solicitor!

It has been a while since the village had a solicitor on the doorstep.  Years ago, there was Douglas Wood Thompson, now defunct.  My previous firm had an office on the high street for a little over a year.  It was indeed one of the key reasons for my joining them in July 2016…only for it to be announced on my second day that they were closing the office within a few months.  It would take a few more years before I could realise my dream of setting up in the village.  

It’s been a good while then since Kinver and the surrounding areas had a solicitor to hand…but no longer!



I have lived in Kinver for around 8 years, and am well settled here.  I’ve one son in Foley Infant Academy, and one in the fabulous Potters Cross Playgroup.  My wife and I fell in love with Kinver when we were looking to buy our first house together, and are so delighted with our choice.

We love the village life and community.  It has all the amenities you could want, with good schools and a thriving local shopping scene, with fabulous walks from the front door up to Kinver Edge, Kinver Rock Houses or the canal and river.

I’m here to stay.  I’m your Kinver Solicitor.

Kinver Office

I’m the only Solicitor with an office in Kinver.  As well as living in the village, I work here too.  I have a great little workspace at the end of the High Street, just on the mini-roundabout at the junction of High Street, Stone Lane and Enville Road.  I’m at: Suite 2, 83 High Street, Kinver, Stourbridge, Staffordshire DY7 6HD.  Here I am on Google Maps: Your location to kinver solicitor – Google Maps .

I can hold meetings here as and when required.  Just drop me a line to make an appointment.  You can call on 01384 872069 or email me on enquiries@mcleanlegal.co.uk .  Alternatively, fill in the Contact Form or simply dive straight into a Live Chat below.  Either way, we can get something set up in no time.  As I live less than 5 minutes up the road, I can open up the office as and when I need.  I met a client at 9:30pm last week, to sign some documents.  As a Consultant Solicitor I have complete freedom about when and where I work, so if something needs doing, I’ll ensure it gets done.  Here’s a little feedback on the office facilities:

“John is a professional but approachable commercial property lawyer.  His offices are modern and provide a comfortable environment to discuss matters.  I’d have no hesitation in recommending his services.”

John McLean Solicitor Office Kinver


NB – just a note to say no letters or other correspondence to this address please, it is for meetings only.  Any written correspondence should be sent marked for my attention to Nexa Law Limited, Suite 2, Salop House, 13 Salop Road, Oswestry, Shropshire SY11 2NR (which will scanned over to me by the team at Nexa Head Office).  All work is carried out through Nexa Law, which is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

Consultant Solicitor

I am a Consultant Solicitor with Nexa Law.  Nexa is a “new model” law firm, which does not have employed (and overworked, overstressed) solicitors on its books.  Instead, each lawyer is a Consultant Solicitor – a business owner in their own right.  Nexa provides all the essential infrastructure for running a legal practice – the Professional Indemnity Insurance, firm Client Account, and back office support.  Each Consultant can then focus on working on their legal matters, in a flexible, and modern way.

Commercial Property Solicitor

I specialise in Commercial Property matters.  You might be taking on a new lease as tenant, or granting one as Landlord.  Perhaps you are buying a freehold office or shop or restaurant or “shed”.  You might be selling Commercial Property, or refinancing Commercial Property.  Either way, I can help.  If you are looking for a Commercial Property Solicitor to act for you or your business, then do get in touch.  You can call on 01384 872069 and speak to a member of my New Enquiry Team.  They will take your details, and I’ll call you right back (or email – just let the Team know your preference) to discuss further.  This initial consultation will be free and with no obligation.  Alternatively, you can email enquiries@mcleanlegal.co.uk or fill in the Contact Form or simply dive straight into the Live Chat box at the bottom of the page.  


I have a loyal and happy client base – here are some comments from a few of them:

“John drew on his knowledge and experience to find excellent solutions for this challenging conveyance. Thanks to John with his methodical and tidy approach, we’re in a great position for future conveyancing with the property.

James Austin, Director of Ackleton Estates Limited

“John acted for me on a new lease of an office at my business premises. John acted swiftly and effectively to get the new tenant in as quickly as possible. I have been very happy with his service, and am happy to recommend him for commercial property leases.

Nicholas Favell, Director of Favell’s Garage Limited

Other Areas of Law

If you are looking for a solicitor to deal with other areas of law, fear not, I can still help.  As a Consultant Solicitor with Nexa Law, I have access to the full range of legal services for private individuals and businesses that Nexa’s consultants offer.  And, with Nexa, you are guaranteed to get someone who knows what they are talking about.  Nexa Consultants have to be over 7 years’ qualified as a pre-condition to work with them.  This gives me the confidence to make introductions to existing and new clients, as I know queries will get dealt with properly.

I’ve got colleagues in all practice areas – wills, trusts, business purchases/sales, conveyancing, commercial litigation, property litigation…you name it, I will have someone who can assist.

Business Law & Private Client Law

Here are some examples of clients I have helped out so far by referring them to excellent Nexa consultants:

  • I referred one of my longstanding business clients to Jennifer Andrews for some ad hoc employment law advice on a Settlement Agreement.
  • I’ve helped out another business client with some contractual debt claims by using the straight-talking and excellent Annest Smith.
  • My colleague Lauren Bailey has helped out a local flat owner in Kinver having issues recovering his rent deposit on a former tenancy.
  • Steven Mather is my go-to commercial lawyer, and has helped one of my contacts (actually the Landlord on a lease I negotiated, who was so impressed with my efficiency that they came to me with their next legal problem, rather than their previous solicitor!) negotiate a commercial contract and he’s currently working with me on a refinancing project to prepare a Loan Agreement and Mortgage for a new client of mine.
  • Louise Sackey is great for contentious probate work – any disputes in relation to wills or estates, and she is excellent.

The bottom line is, whatever the legal query, I’ll be able to find someone friendly, approachable and above all experienced to help.  If you are wondering if I can help, just pick up the phone and call 01384 872069 .  My lovely New Enquiry team will take your details, and I’ll give you a (free, no obligation) call back to chat further and see if I can line up an Expert to help you.  There’s nothing lost by giving me a call or emailing enquiries@mcleanlegal.co.uk or filling in the Contact Form or Live Chatting right away!
