Wellers Law Group LLP, always an advocate for positive change, has grown and developed in parallel with the needs of its clients. In the very early days of Wellers, this meant building up a major litigation practice in Kent. By the 1950’s it meant adding more layers of expertise; in property, wills, probate and trusts. In the 1970s Wellers expanded into commercial law and attracted a new client base of private and public companies in Kent and London, seeking expert help with employment, litigation and complex company law.
In the 1980s, Wellers also moved into the wider area of family law, helping clients to deal with divorce, separation, custody and associated family and partnership issues and we now have one of the largest departments of matrimonial solicitors in Kent. By the last decade of the 20th century, Wellers had become a familiar part of the legal landscape in Kent, London and wider afield. Families and individuals, particularly in the local community of Bromley, saw Wellers Law Group LLP as a safe and caring pair of hands for their personal affairs. Businesses in the UK and overseas were attracted by Wellers’ considerable reputation for corporate law and finance, amassed by creating financial and off-shore tax efficient structures and helping public companies towards successful flotation. Charities and not for profit organisations also began to see Wellers as an expert source of advice, helping the firm to its current trusted position as legal advisor to over 435 charities.

Now, in the 21st century, Wellers is continuing to grow and evolve in harmony with the needs of clients. The Family Law department was strengthened by the acquisition of Charman & Gore in 2007, another well-established firm of solicitors in Bromley; a merger with City firm Cooke Matheson has added weight to the commercial portfolio. More recently the firm has expanded into Surrey acquiring Hedleys Solicitors. This wider sphere of operations and services has been recognised by the creation of the Wellers Law Group, a unifying brand which underpins and respects the individual identities of the member firms whilst emphasising the quality standard that unites them. Today Wellers is a full-service modern legal practice operating from seven office locations in central London, Kent and Surrey serving clients in the UK and overseas.
