Our History

Attwaters Jameson Hill started life in 1901 as Attwater & Liell with a single premises in London. As the practice grew, new offices in Harlow and Loughton opened in the 1930s and 1950s, respectively. In 2012, Attwater & Liell merged with respected Hertfordshire practice Jameson & Hill, whose Hertford and Ware offices opened for business in 1982. The new business boasted 14 partners, 85 staff and a combined 140 years of legal practice.

Under the new name of Attwaters Jameson Hill, our firm has continued to expand and grow in both skill and ambition over the years. In 2019, Attwaters Jameson Hill merged with respected London practice Stafford Young Jones, bringing even more highly qualified solicitors onto the team and providing clients with access to SJY’s City office.
