Group logo of Hunters We are a leading Lincoln’s Inn firm that takes the long-term view as trusted advisers to businesses, private clients and charities. We offer specialist legal advice over a range of services.  Whilst our clients number private individuals, businesses, trusts, charities and other organisations, they all expect the individual personal service and high level of expertise for which we are known. The firm was founded in 1715 and has been based in Lincoln’s Inn since 1745. The continuing demand for our services reflects our 21st century working practices. We understand our clients’ needs and tailor our work to each set of circumstances, providing high quality, cost effective advice. We are a multi disciplinary practice and work collaboratively to provide a comprehensive service over all our practice areas. A designated partner is personally responsible for every client: the special relationship which develops from this arrangement – very often built up over many years – is the bedrock of our practice.
