With a proud history dating back to 1695, we are one of the oldest firms in the country.  Indeed we have worked with one client continuously since 1699.


We act primarily for landowners and landed estates, trusts and charities, farmers, family businesses and private individuals. We have a reputation for providing practical, down-to-earth advice backed up by serious technical expertise.

Most firms profess to put their clients’ interests at the heart of all they do, but sadly too many have become commercial operations focussed primarily on profit. Clients are seen as sources of revenue rather than people to be helped. And having been promised a great service, many clients find that their work is delegated to junior colleagues who have been set stretching targets for the fees they must bill.

We are proud to have a more old-fashioned approach. When clients call us, we see problems to be resolved, not fees to be earned. We genuinely believe that it is inherent in a professional’s role that they must always put their clients' interests first and never their own. The target we set ourselves is a simple one - to produce satisfied clients.
