Client experience is integral to our core values

Our friendly and approachable team of specialist lawyers work closely with you to assist in dealing with your legal matters. We want to build lasting relationships and we will go the extra mile to reach the best outcome for you. We are transparent with both our advice and associated costs and pay careful consideration to both the legal and financial implications you may face.

Helping People since 1824

We can trace our roots all the way back to 1824, when solicitor John Wadsworth set up as an attorney on Fletcher Gate. Twenty-six years later, in 1850, George Bell Rothera – the first of six generations in his family to work in the legal profession – established the firm Rotheras. Whilst we have undergone a number of transformations since then our reputation as a friendly, respected and forward-thinking firm has remained consistent.

Our Heritage

The Rotheras name is synonymous with history, culture and prestige. Our roots can be traced back as far as 1824 and in that near 200 years, we have constantly excelled in serving the community with a level of service and expertise unparalleled anywhere else. We’re proud of our heritage, but are also focused on our future. Our values are not just held by the firm, but by each and every person who comes to work here, and have been chosen specifically with this thought in mind.

So whether it’s your first experience with us, be it in person, over the phone or even if you’re looking to become one of us, these ideals will always be centric to how we conduct ourselves and the reason we continue to lead the industry. Without them, we may become what we all strive to avoid most of all – to be the same as every other law firm.
