Welcome to Verisona Law

We are a Portsmouth based law firm who are here to help you in your business and family life.

Our Heritage

Verisona Law was formed in 2008 when two long standing law firms, Dyer Burdett and Gray Purdue joined forces. The vision was to build a law firm that offered a variety of legal services to both commercial and private clients. Ten years later, we are one of the most wide-ranging law firms in the area, having consolidated our reputation and experience in the legal market place.

Whether you are a business or an individual, Verisona Law prides itself on the care and attention we give to every case we work on.
