Rob Jameson celebrates 50th anniversary of legal practice
Rob Jameson, a Consultant in the Town & Country Planning Department, is proud to be celebrating his 50th year as a solicitor. Recently named a ‘Leading Individual’ and highly praised in the latest edition of the Legal 500 directory, he has accumulated vast experience during his distinguished career, with decades spent advising local authorities on important planning matters such as Core Spatial strategies and other development plan documents.
Rob was educated at Calday Grange Grammar School in West Kirby before gaining his LLB law degree at Sheffield University. From there, he went on to become a specialist Planning Lawyer in local government. After moving from Cheshire to Hertfordshire in 1974, he jointly founded law firm Jameson and Hill in 1982. The firm practiced for 30 years before merging with Attwater and Liell in 2012, taking the name it still has today: Attwaters Jameson Hill. The award-winning firm has since gone from strength to strength and comes highly recommended by a wide range of legal publications.
No stranger to accolades himself, Rob can lay claim to numerous individual awards and titles of his own. He was listed as one of the top 25 highest ranked Planning solicitors in the 2017 Planning Law Survey, has been awarded the prestigious title of ‘Senior Statesman’ for five years running by the Chambers and Partners directory, and has been named a ‘Leading Individual’ multiple times by the Legal 500. Satisfied clients commented that his “skill, knowledge and expertise and his ability to get to the key issues and explain things clearly and concisely is excellent.”
Commenting on his anniversary, Rob said: “I’m very proud to have been practicing law for 50 years. Very few people can say they have been a job they love for half a century; it’s a privilege and a pleasure to use the expertise I have gained over the decades to assist my clients in reaching their goals and to helping them achieve the best results.”
