Local Solicitors Celebrate 115-year Anniversary

On behalf of Attwaters Jameson Hill posted on Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Attwaters Jameson Hill has come a long way in its 115 years. Attwater & Liell (as it was originally known) commenced business in 1901, a year in which a number of historic events were taking place. Queen Victoria’s reign ended, which marked the culmination of the Victorian era, Winston Churchill made his maiden speech in the British House of Commons and Marconi sent the first transatlantic radio signal.


Initially operating from its offices in Bishopsgate and Stratford, London; moving out to Loughton, Essex in the 1930s and expanding into Harlow in 1954, Attwater & Liell quickly gained pace and reputation. The journey did not end there – in 2009, the firm changed its name to become Attwaters, along with a re-branded image, and in 2012 it merged with Jameson & Hill, which meant a new presence in Hertfordshire in the towns of Hertford and Ware.

One of the firm’s partners, Joyti Henchie, said: “Attwaters Jameson Hill has a long and proud history of serving the local community. Despite our growth in both size and service areas, our company ethos of placing the needs of the client at the heart of everything we do has never altered. We are passionate about what we do; helping local individuals and businesses to achieve the best possible outcome, whatever their legal need“.

Attwaters Jameson Hill is now a leading regional organisation; a top ranked firm in the Chambers and Partners UK 2016 listing and the Legal 500. It has transitioned from a period where the UK population was 41,458,721 in 1901, to a total of 65,189,850 today. Attwaters Jameson Hill has also grown over these years; now operating across four offices in Hertford, Ware, Harlow and Loughton, with more than 100 employees.
