About Us

With offices in King’s Lynn, Peterborough, Thetford  Wisbech, and Ely  Metcalfe Copeman & Pettefar Solicitors is one of East Anglia’s most respected firms.

We deal with most areas of law, both private and commercial, and our lawyers pride themselves on their professional, friendly, cost-effective service.

MCP Solicitors is unusual in that, in addition to our general services, our lawyers have a number of nationally recognised specialisms, including our work in Commercial and Regulatory Law. We are regularly mentioned in the Legal 500 an independent guide that ranks law firms and solicitors in the UK. 

Based in rural East Anglia, yet within two hours of most business centres in the UK, our lawyers deliver a quality legal service at an affordable price.

Our client base is both local and national. The former category includes local families with whom we have been connected for decades, the latter includes national publicly quoted businesses.

We strive to attract the best talent to our firm. We believe that our breadth of practice allows our lawyers to enjoy a good measure of career development. We encourage practice changes and development. We are happy that many lawyers remain with us for long periods of time and in particular that most of the Partnership have a very long association with the firm.

 MCP Solicitors was established in 1784 and has been in continuous practice ever since. In 2020 the firm merged with Pooley, Bendall Watson solicitors so that we now cover the Ely area. Our firm has achieved much over the years. We aim to work hard to serve our clients well and look for long term security in the business and those involved in it.
