Verisona Solicitors and Advicates – http://www.verisona.co.uk/

Verisona, Solicitors and Advocates is a new Company, having evolved from the long established legal practices of Gray Purdue in Waterlooville and Dyer Burdett in Havant.

At first sight it may appear the name is a little strange but those involved in Verisona very much wanted the new business to be a little different and to stand out.  Traditionally lawyers have always used their names as a trading identity but we felt Dyer Burdett Gray Purdue Limited was a bit of a mouthful!  The word “Verisona” is derived from the latin for Truth (veritas) and to speak (sona).

All of the expertise and experience derived from the two firms of Dyer Burdett and Gray Purdue have remained with Verisona providing solicitors services, legal advice and support of exceptional quality to a range of private and commercial clients both in the local communities of Waterlooville, Havant, Portsmouth and the South of England.
