At our Stanley office in the Falklands, we focus on property, commercial, contract, company, employment, fisheries, criminal, wills, probate, private client, matrimonial, children (public and private law) and notarial. This means there’s a constant stream of client meetings, so, you’ll always find something going on.
It’s a small office in the centre of town, so there of plenty of local facilities on our doorstep, from cafés and restaurants to supermarkets, banks and a post office. Or, if you don’t fancy a walk, we have a fully-stocked kitchen on-site.
If you want to go further afield, you can get almost all of Stanley within 40 minutes. There are no trains or buses in the town, but there’s plenty of parking on-site and next to the office when it’s not walking weather.
Stanley’s a busy, multi-cultural place, with a population of around 2,500. You’ll find a choice of places to eat, from high class restaurants to cafés and pubs. There’s also an excellent public library and a museum, detailing the history of the islands since they were first inhabited in the 1700s.
If you enjoy sports, there’s a range of clubs to join and excellent leisure facilities, including a 25-metre swimming pool, a sports hall, fully-equipped gym and squash court. But the main activity is hiking, to enjoy some of the islands’ spectacular natural beauty and wildlife, including five breeding species of penguin.
Communications tend to be patchy and expensive, because the islands are so remote. The weather’s generally mild, with low rainfall and average temperatures of 0-5˚C in winter and 10-15˚C in summer. But it does get very windy, so it’s a good idea to bring windproof clothing and sturdy shoes!
