• What do we do?

    From our City centre offices in Exeter, our expert Solicitors offer specialist legal advice to both the business and non-business client.

    Clearly our main purpose is to provide sound legal advice. However, as well as the legal aspects of a case, we will also take time to consider other non-legal matters which may be just as important. It is because you are put in direct contact with a Solicitor, who will see your case through from beginning to end and becuase we use plain English when speaking with you, that you can be confident that you are in control of things.

    So, no stuffy lawyers, no legal jargon, one main point of contact and a relaxed and informal atmosphere with a fabulous view of Exeter Cathedral. What are you waiting for? Choose Morgan & Pope for a comprehensive approach and advice you can rely upon.



  • Who are we

    Morgan & Pope Solicitors was formed on 1st October 2011 when 208 years' worth of experience were combined following the merge of Stephen Morgan & Co and Popes Solicitors (previously J. & S. P. Pope).

    We are a medium sized law firm based in Cathedral Yard, Exeter and you can expect to receive, as standard, exceptionally high quality legal services at a price you can afford. However, it is our friendly, non-stuffy approach to the law that sets us apart from the rest of the lawyers in Exeter and makes us a must when deciding who to instruct to deal with your everyday legal needs.


  • Why choose us?

    Our clients choose us because:

    • We provide sensible and comprehensive advice
    • We are friendly and approachable
    • We are efficient
    • We really do care



A ‘compromise agreement’ is a legally binding agreement following the termination of your employment. It usually provides for a severance payment by your employer, in return for which you agree not to pursue any claim you may have to an employment tribunal. Quite often, the compromise agreement will also deal with the notice element in your contract of employment and may provide for an additional payment or other benefits.

You must have the compromise agreement explained by an independent solicitor before the agreement becomes binding, in which case Morgan & Pope Solicitors would be delighted to assist.

The solicitor giving the advice must also sign the agreement and certify that the appropriate advice has been given.

We can represent you in negotiations with your employer about the terms of the compromise agreement, including the financial compensation, ensuring that you defend your rights through what can be a highly complex process.

We can also advise you on the specific terms of the compromise agreement, ensuring that you understand the limits that it will be likely to impose on any future employment tribunal claims you might make. We have an excellent track record of negotiating successful outcomes for our employee clients with compromise agreements.

In most cases where we assist with compromise agreements, the employer’s contributions covers all our fees so our client doesn’t have to pay anything. We will make out an invoice in your name but this will be payable by your employers as part of the settlement, so we will send this directly to them.

If you would like to have an informal, no-obligations discussion of your circumstances, or to arrange a meeting/telephone call, then please call us on 01392 274006 to speak with either Terry Chetwood or Mark Shell or send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.
