Widely acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading law firms specialising in national and regional residential and commercial property development, we have grown steadily over recent years to incorporate additional specialist departments in dispute resolution and litigation, corporate and commercial, private client, and employment.
Noted for applying progressive, innovative and dynamic thinking to meet the needs of our clients, we take an active interest in the development of our clients’ business and pride ourselves on the provision of the very highest levels of legal service as well as our approachability which has become our hallmark.
Founded in 1953 as a commercial practice based in the City of London acting primarily for commercial and property development clients, we were originally known as Harold Benjamin & Collins.
Sustained growth throughout the 1970s enabled us to establish offices in Harrow, South Harrow, Ruislip and Highgate but, in order to best serve the specialist needs of our expanding client base, we decided to consolidate our resources into one single location and, in 1990, moved to north-west London.
Further growth came about as a result of a series of mergers. In the late 1990s we took in by way of merger the commercial practice of Tomkins Boddy & Co and the property development practice of Cawthorns. In 2000, we were joined by Littlejohn & Co which gave further strength and depth to our litigation department and the following years saw continued expansion through recruitment in our corporate, commercial and private client departments.
2013 marked the firm’s 60th Anniversary which saw further expansion across all departments which, together with the mergers with Jonathan S Rose Solicitors of Barnet and Ireland Abrahams of Harrow-on-the-Hill, resulted in a year-on-year increase of 20% in staff numbers.
Today, we offer a full range of specialist skills in all areas including Commercial and Residential Property Development, Planning, Construction, Commercial Leasing, Commercial Property Investment and Auctions, Renewable Energy, Secured Lending, Corporate & Commercial, Information Technology, Commercial and Property Litigation, Dispute Resolution, Landlord and Tenant, Employment, Private Client, Wills and Probate.
