Our Heritage

"First class, upmarket quality...with an emphasis on standards" Chambers & Partners

We have a long and distinguished heritage - and a thoroughly twenty-first century approach.

The firm is believed to have been established in or before 1730.  The Gentleman's Magazine in March 1796 described a notable partner, Thomas Wildman, as "a man of intelligence, with a mind active and ever fervid for the good of his client whose case he seemed to make his own, and in the close of which he was seldom unsuccessful."

These attributes are still at the heart of what makes the firm so special: independent thinking, caring long-term relationships with clients and outstanding levels of personal service.
