Our Services


At Richard Wilson Long the sale or purchase of your property and/or business is not “just another legal transaction”. We never forget the human aspects and appreciate that such matters can be extremely stressful. Our staff will, at all times, be approachable and understanding.


If you are considering getting a divorce, separating, dissolving a civil partnership, or making any kind of arrangement for children, our family lawyers are here to help and advise you.  Our lawyers have considerable experience in all aspects of family and matrimonial law.

Private Client

At some point in our lives we are all conscious that we should put in place plans to help our loved ones with our affairs in the event of our death or incapacity. Our compassionate team can guide and assist you with practical tips and legal advice.


Buying or selling an existing business can be both an exciting prospect and extremely stressful. Before you decide whether to pursue this endeavour, it’s important to understand the process and have confidence that your interests are best protected. We are here to do just that!


Employment law has substantially developed over recent years and  is still developing rapidly . Revisions to and new legislation can have costly effects for the unwary so we can offer expert guidance with practical advice.

Disputes & Mediation

Becoming involved in a dispute is always traumatic and requires careful handling, coupled with swift and robust action where necessary.  You can be certain that we are here to fight your corner for you whether through the Courts or Mediation.


Dentistry is governed by complex and strict regulatory frameworks.  This makes buying or selling a dental practice  unique in comparison to similar transactions amongst any other types of businesses so it is  important to get expert help.

    What our clients say about us

    • Please pass on my gratitude to Karen who was exceptionally helpful and stopped my dad being worried about his final wishes. Karen made the process at a very tough time, very straightforward and simple.

    • Ros Sanderson is an efficient, no nonsense professional with a sense of humour. Switched on and thorough, Ms Sanderson has always kept us well informed throughout our property transactions. Over the past fourteen years we have sold and purchased properties with her help and our only regret is we didn’t meet her earlier!

    • Please accept my very deepest thanks for your exceptional efficiency in handling my father’s probate which was crucial in enabling the sale of his house

    • I have to admit a certain level of astonishment at how fast the grant arrived, thank you for being so efficient

    • Thank you also for all your kindness and consideration for both my aunt and uncle over the last few years. You went far beyond the call of duty organising all the help and small details at …

    • Ros, just a short thank you for your services with regard to our last property sale, as usual every thing went smoothly thanks to your help in sorting out the few unexpected problems we encountered along the way. It must be 20 years now that we have been using yourselves and each time it is the same trouble free, rapid conclusion that we get. Thanks again

    • Ros has acted for me on many occasions and has consistently provided a first class service. Her approach is thorough; she is prepared to examine the details many solicitors would skim over. If you are buying or selling a property I would highly recommend her conveyancing.

    • I just wanted to say thank-you again for all of your help [Richard].  You made a very stressful situation much more bearable.

    • Richard, thanks for all your help on this – you are always a re-assuring and positive voice and have been a great help over the last few months!

    • Thank you Ros, your responsiveness and assistance throughout this process have been highly appreciated. You have made the process so much easier than it might otherwise have been considering our remoteness. Thank you. Kind regards, Michael.

    • I would like to thank you [Richard Apley] & your team for dealing with this sensitive & at times a roller-coaster family dispute in a professional manner. Perhaps you should use this as a case study where something was recovered when it was all but gone.

    • Karen, Thank you very much for all your help

    • Kerry, thank you so much for all your hard work, I hope you enjoy the wine and Italian olive oil

    • Hello Ros, Tea arrived!! How lovely. Thank you very much indeed. Best wishes Caroline 

    • Kerry, thank you for everything

    • thank you for your efficient & compassionate team

    • Dear Karen, Thank you so much and your colleagues for all the hard work you have been doing over the last 3 years since Dad died. I cannot thank you enough and especially for all the moral and emotional support you gave me-it has helped me so much

    • Dear Kerry– I am enormously grateful for everything you have done on this one. At every step I have always felt fully supported by you and have had every confidence in the work you have done and the quality advice you have provided. Not only that, but I truly admire the attitude with which you have gone about things, certain that your focus is in getting it right versus getting it out of the way quickly and that you have had only my best interest in mind. I have also appreciated the great intelligence, wit and generosity you’ve brought throughout the process. It’s rare these days for service providers to take the time to dive into the detail and explain things clearly and frankly in such a friendly and professional manner

    • Jon – Thank you so for all your help and support at this difficult time.

    • Richard Wilson Long recently (March 2023) acted for my family in the sale of our family home in Goring. Jon Charles took us from offer to completion in 2 weeks, helping us navigate some bumps in the road with a friendly and cheerful approach which made a sad and difficult situation more bearable. His colleague Kerry Ridden stepped in to hold the fort when Jon was unavailable and, again was both effective and caring. The practice receptionist was unfailingly patient and polite despite the numerous times I called! I highly recommend the Goring-on -Thames team.

    • Jon, some of the advice you gave me was hard to hear but you were spot on and in the long run this helped me enormously – thank you

    • Dear Jon, I applicate your continued support and direct approach to achieve a very satisfactory outcome for me. All felt you were on my side no matter what.

    • Thank you Richard Wilson Long!  Patrick was so approachable & knowledgeable which made the whole transaction so much easier.
