Benjamin Davenport-Lawton


Contact Benjamin

I am a Solicitor based at the Firm’s Runcorn office and I specialise in Private Client. I have been based in Runcorn since September 2020 and I am enjoying building relationships with clients and local businesses (and also learning about the local history along the way!).

I have experience in and deal with:

  • Wills;
  • Probate;
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney;
  • Trusts;
  • Court of Protection Applications;

I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2016 where I obtained a 2:1 in History. I then began studying the Graduate Diploma in Law at Nottingham Law School and advanced onto the Legal Practice Course the following year, also obtaining a Master of Laws.

I joined Butcher & Barlow in July 2018 working as a Paralegal and commenced my Training Contract in September 2019. I qualified as a Solicitor in September 2021.

My interests outside of work involve most rural pursuits and watching sports; particularly rugby and horse racing. I also enjoy taking my Cocker Spaniel, Maggie, to every corner of the Peak District.

What our clients say about Benjamin

I contacted Benjamin for some advice regarding a will. He was very clear and thorough. I came away fully understanding what was required of me. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and colleagues.


Ben provided me with a first rate service from start to finish. He was very friendly and considerate throughout. Thank you Ben.
