Our story

We are Rubric Law – a testament to dreams nurtured and hard work. Founded in a bedroom in Bristol in 2012 by James Howell, a knowledgeable solicitor with almost 20 years of experience, Rubric has blossomed into a leading corporate law firm.

In the beginning, our expertise was seen predominantly in the healthcare industry. It’s been quite a journey, one that has led us to act on behalf of one of the globe’s largest veterinary practices.

We now work on behalf of businesses from all industries, with a focus on dentistry, technology, ecommerce and healthcare. Our dedicated team of corporate solicitors has been instrumental in this growth.

As an ambitious visionary, James’s dream was not just about creating another law firm; but about reimagining the very essence of what a law firm could be.

With Rubric, James aimed to transform the often-stiff perception of solicitors, creating a practice that is modern, personable, and approachable, one that values every individual’s unique journey. It’s a vision that we’re not just proud of, but one that has become our identity.

This ethos extends to our internal working culture, characterised by encouragement and growth. James has proudly mentored and trained five legal minds, guiding them to their qualifications as solicitors.

Today, we offer an array of advice for legal matters, from business acquisitions, mergers, and sales to all aspects of employment and commercial property law.

Rubric is more than just a law firm; we’re a team, a family, united by our mission to offer friendly, expert legal guidance to businesses with a modern, approachable touch.

What makes Rubric different?

Feeling left in the dark and unsure of where you are with your business transaction can be stressful. Rubric takes a hands-on approach to eliminate these frustrations.

Proactive communication. From instruction through to completion we will update you regularly throughout your transaction and promise to respond to enquiries within 24 hours. We start with a kick-off call to find out how and when you’d like to be updated, so you can have peace of mind knowing when your next update is due.

Transparent price structure. This will be clearly discussed before any work is started, so you won’t be left with any surprises at the end.

We’re all about keeping to our timeline. With our seasoned experience and efficient processes, we make sure everything runs smoothly and on time.
