Foundation

We are England & Co, solicitors in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Martham. Established since 1936. We specialise in Wills & Probate, Purchase, sale & remortgage of Domestic & Commercial Property, employment, Power of Attorneys & Family matters. We have solicitors on the Law Society's Children and Resolution Panels. We are local, friendly and take pride in the services we provide.

70's Onwards

At the beginning of the 70's Leslie was still working in the firm, in partnership with Arthur Stubbs, who had joined him after the 2nd World War. During the 70s, Arthur's son, Michael, became a junior partner. Leslie retired in 1975 and Arthur not long after. The firm specialised in residential conveyancing, probates, wills and trusts, and some Family, criminal and general litigation work. Peter Mason, joined in 1983. In July 1984 Peter became a partner in the firm, with Michael. Family, criminal and general Litigation within the firm grew rapidly. In 1996, Michael retired and Peter became the sole Principal. In the 90's the firm grew culminating in the acquisition of Derrick Garwood & Co in 1999 resulting in offices in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth and Martham. We ventured into Suffolk opening a Lowestoft branch in July 2017.

Present Position

Peter Mason remainedthe Principal until the 1st October 2016 when England and Co became a partnership of five. This includes Peter Mason, Christopher Smyth, Lorna Anderson, Christopher Porter and Vickie Hurren. The firm achieved "Investors in People" standard in 1997 showing a commitment and investment in all our employees. The firm meets the Legal Services Commission's Quality Assurance Standard and in 2008 was awarded Lexcel, the "quality mark" specifically for solicitors. We have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency enabling us to provide such legal aid work for family matters, as remains available, following the severe cuts in Legal Aid work made in April 2013.
