History

By Gareth Williams, Senior Partner from 2005-2017

The firm began its life in 1960 when a distinguished Cardiff solicitor Hugh James left another city practice to set up a small business of his own.

Hugh James was a fine lawyer, and in particular a wonderful advocate.  However, he also had an eye for legal talent.

Over the following years he recruited around him a band of highly gifted lawyers, many of whom went on to become partners in the firm.

During the succeeding decades the firm has grown both in size and in reputation. For a number of years it had offices throughout South East Wales but, as the nature of legal business changed, it has now concentrated its resources on Cardiff, where it has its main office, and London, where we have recently moved to a new location.

Whilst originally our reputation was in litigation, and whilst we remain a very powerful litigation firm, we now act for a huge range of businesses both nationally and locally, for public sector clients and also private clients.  We pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive commercial service to our clients.

From our very modest beginnings, we are now established as the largest indigenous law firm in Wales and have exciting plans for future growth.
