Why Us

David Barney - Barney & Co Solicitors


Theodore Roosevelt once said “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”.

David Barney very much cares that his clients do not get themselves into trouble when they buy a French property and does all he can to try and see that this does not happen! That is why his clients like what he does for them because they know he really cares. How many other lawyers can be said to feel the same?

David Barney can be contacted directly on 07766095865.  For free discussion of your legal requirements and our ability to satisfy them please complete our contact form and David will get back in touch you.

Barney & Co solicitors have numerous years experience specialising within the legal industry and can draw upon hands on experience of specialising in corporate commercial work.

If you consult Barney & Co. on a legal matter, you can be assured that they will bring to the matter a pro-active approach, with an ability to think laterally upon any matter, particularly when it is necessary to bring a fresh perspective to bear on any problem in order to solve it in a manner where ‘value is added’ to the matter for the client’s benefit.

Barney & Co. does not simply act as a “post office”, passing on its client’s instructions to the opposing solicitor or Notaire. Instead, we attempt to assist the client to find the best solution (legal or practical) to their problem. At times that may require Barney & Co. to stand up robustly against the person advising the other party to the transaction.

However, if we believe our client is making a mistake in relation to a transaction, we will not be reticent to tell our client so – remembering that, at the end of the day, a solicitor’s job is to advise and warn – the final decision must rest with the client.

It is wise to remember that a good lawyer may well be able to save you money – a bad one may cost you a fortune!!

What our clients say

Mrs SD – March 2019

 I accessed a 20 minute free consultation  with David. His advice about  property inheritance laws and taxes in France was really helpful and beneficial to our decision making. Without this advice, we could have ended up in a legal quagmire!’ David comes highly recommended.

What our clients say…

"My wife and I contacted David Barney in October 2017 as we wanted to sell a property in France, which had serious legal issues with regards to beneficiaries after a colleague’s death. We can confirm that David has been a great asset in fighting our corner and I would go as far as to say that David’s knowledge of French Property Law is probably more extensive than Notaires based in France. In our case, I am positive that if it had not been for David’s knowledge and know how, we probably would not have been able to proceed to a successful completion and sold the property.

I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending that you contact David Barney in the event that you have a property in France that you may wish to sell or that you may be considering purchasing a property in France.

He will provide you with all the information required and will give you every assistance in ensuring that you have the right advice in any proposed transaction."
