Not all law firms are the same.

We think we’re part of a new breed of legal services providers. One who focuses less on telling you how complex the law is, more on making it work to your advantage.

Our story began more than 200 years ago when Brethertons launched as a small firm of lawyers for local farmers and landowners. We’re proud of our past; it has shaped our present. But these days there’s not a mahogany desk or inch of wood panelling in sight.
