About Us

Napthens provides legal services to businesses and individuals. Structured into specialist departments, we have over 200 staff including 30 Partners and operate from offices across Lancashire including Preston, Blackburn, Chorley and the Fylde - and our office located in Penrith, Cumbria.  What makes Napthens stand out from many other law firms is our strength in depth across our range of services. This ensures all our clients receive the personalised, tailored advice they need from real specialists in their field. Our people are friendly and approachable and although we have the expertise you might expect from a large City law firm, our local firm pricing ensures you receive a quality service that gives real value for money.
