About Stewart & Bennett  

Stewart & Bennett are a modern and forward-looking firm of solicitors occupying recently refurbished premises prominently situated in Dunoon. The firm and its predecessors have provided legal services to the Cowal area and beyond, since 1861 from the same address. There are currently two solicitors and a further staff of six.

The range of current services includes conveyancing, wills, powers of attorney, winding up estates, and divorce/separation court work. There are many other aspects of legal advice covered and a free first half hour interview scheme makes it possible to obtain initial advice and guidance at no cost. There are allocated spaces for disabled parking right outside and access is level from the pavement. The firm operates a busy Estate Agency with membership of GSPC and access to its powerful website and free weekly property newspaper.

Technology
Stewart & Bennett utilise up to date computer systems, incorporating case management software and automatic electronic updating of title deeds. They have made a policy decision to concentrate this technology on the tasks which have to be carried out for the client, rather than on self-promotion and as a result you will not find them endlessly Tweeting or updating their Facebook status. However they are not left behind in the technology stakes and are currently one of the few solicitor firms working seriously towards providing a paperless office environment. All incoming mail is scanned on receipt and lawyers and paralegals work from the scanned images from that point on. The firm is conversant with the ARTL system operated by the Land Register of Scotland, allowing title deeds to be updated within 24 hours of your house purchase.

Modern legal transactions can now be carried out with very little paper involved – a typical commercial transaction might involve weeks of work, but only four or five pieces of paper from start to finish.
