History of the firm:

From our early origins as a private client firm, often advising farmers and landowners, Brethertons has grown as the towns around us have grown and developed. Banbury and Rugby were very different places in the 19th and 20th centuries and the firm has responded well to a changing environment.

In the recent years, Brethertons has seen the most change, growing steadily and doubling in size in the past 10 years, introducing a strong corporate team providing advice and assistance to companies and directors, including a dedicated commercial property team.

In 1996, Rugby-based Brethertons merged with Banbury-based corporate commercial firm Auld & Jardine and this gave us a foothold into a second county, Oxfordshire, and further enhanced our commercial offering. Approximately half of the firm’s work is commercial in nature including litigation, commercial property and debt recovery, and half is advising individuals on private client matters including wealth planning, conveyancing and family law.

Today, clients of the firm include well-known listed companies, owner-managed businesses, SMEs and individuals including, directors, accountants, IFAs, managers, those of high net worth and landowners.
