who we are

Cooper Stott Solicitors is a Durham based law firm with our head office located in Aykley Heads, just outside of Durham City. We have a large free car park at our office and disabled access.

Cooper Stott Solicitors was formed in 1987, then known as Alison Stott Solicitors and based on Elvet Bridge. Alison Stott Solicitors began as a sole practitioner general practice handling a range of legal issues including family law, conveyancing, wills and probate and crime. 

Before too long, Alison Stott Solicitors outgrew their Elvet Bridge office and relocated to Reform Place on North Road. The practice was also growing rapidly and new support staff were employed along with a second solicitor, Kathryn Cooper, who remains a partner to this day.

In 1995 Alison Stott Solicitors were on the move again and they relocated to the current office in Aykley Heads. An imposing stone building, Aykley Vale Chambers was the former head office of the electricity board in Durham and sits prominently on Durham Road between Framwellgate Moor and Durham City.  In 2000 Alison Stott retired and with new partner Nigel Cooper on board, the name was changed to reflect the practice’s current identity while retaining a link to its foundation.

Currently employing four lawyers combining 70 years of legal experience and a further ten support staff, here at Cooper Stott Solicitors, we pride ourselves on our approachability and eagerness to help our clients achieve their goal. Of upmost importance to us is treating every client individually and we offer each client a personal approach in dealing with their case.

We are proud to be members of the Law Society’s Family Law Advanced Panel, Law Society’s Children Panel and were the first firm in Durham to become members of the Law Society’s Quality Conveyancing Scheme.
