Meet The Team

Bell and Buxton solicitors is home to a highly regarded and well-established commercial property team led by Matthew Rodgers. With over 20 years’ experience of advising on a broad range of commercial property matters, we are committed to getting transactions completed on time and within budget.


During the new lockdown we will continue to work remotely wherever possible. However, our offices will be open should it be necessary to visit to deliver documents or to see any of our solicitors. Please make sure that you make an appointment for any visit as we need to limit the number of visitors to our offices at any one time and ensure that they and our staff are safe.

Where possible we will arrange virtual meetings by video conference/telephone with our clients and others when appropriate. If you want to talk to one of our solicitors or need legal advice please contact us and we will do all that we can to assist. Please bear with us if it takes a little longer than usual to reply to you.

Anyone visiting us at our offices will need to wear a face covering and follow all the government guidance regarding social distancing.

Clients include developers, entrepreneurs, business owners, banks and investors. We punch above our weight in terms of the work we do, and our commercial approach to transactions ensures the commercial aims of clients are achieved.

We have a strong working knowledge of specialist sectors and businesses in the local area, particularly in the areas of manufacturing, technology and agriculture. The work we do routinely falls outside South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire, with clients instructing us from London and Wales. 

Our solicitors have developed constructive working relationships with lawyers who we frequently encounter working on opposite sides of transactions. This means that clients can rely on us to negotiate tactically and solve any problems that may arise.

Very often, commercial property matters are part of a wider business transaction and we work closely with colleagues in our business and corporate departments supporting them on commercial projects. Matthew Rodgers is a recommended Legal 500 lawyer, working in the field of corporate and commercial law.

Working to a budget is the norm for us. We will discuss costs at the outset of every transaction and explore all fee options with you, including fixed fees. We have an innovative approach to funding that is commercially sensitive, therefore we encourage clients to call us directly to discuss these in more detail.
