Closure of Litigation Department


Over the last year, the Partners, Rob Fawcett, Managing Partner, Sharon Lyon, Risk and Compliance Partner, and Sophie Careless-Shore, Head of Private Client, have put in place a strategic plan for E J Moyle LLP which aims to promote and develop a niche law firm, offering niche legal services to clients and businesses across Rustington, Littlehampton, Worthing and the Sussex area. 

With this is mind, the Partners have decided to close their Litigation Department from the end of February, 2023, and so will no longer be able to offer this service.  This was a very difficult decision to make, and one which took a long time to arrive at, but it will now allow us to promote our niche services, with a Partner heading up each Department:

Rob Fawcett, Solicitor and Managing Partner, and Head of Residential and Commercial Property, offering legal services in relation to residential property and commercial property transactions of all types.

Sharon Lyon, Solicitor and Risk and Compliance Partner, and Head of Family Law, offering legal services in relation to Children matters, divorce, financial settlements, and pre-nuptial agreements)

Sophie Careless-Shore, Solicitor and Head of Private Client, offering legal services in relation to Wills, Probates, LPA’s, EPA’s and Trusts).

By offering legal services in these 3 niche areas, we aim to consolidate our already excellent local reputation, and continue to offer the high quality service that we have provided over many years.

The Partners look forward to welcoming past and existing clients back, and to working with new clients and businesses in the future.

Rob, Sharon or Sophie all look forward to hearing from you.


Rob Fawcett, Managing Partner
