In January 1867 Queen Victoria was less than half way through her 63 year reign. In the UK, the streets were full of horses. Gentlemen wore frock coats and wing collars whilst ladies sported voluminous skirts supported by hoops, petticoats, and or crinolines. There were no cars, no aeroplanes; no telephones and no computers. But what, you may ask, has this to do with business today?
Well, in Luton, a gentleman by the name of Walter Neve opened a solicitor’s office. Our firm, now called Neves Solicitors LLP, has offices in Milton Keynes, Luton and Harpenden, making us 150 years old.
However, it is not just the firm that is long established. At least one local family, the Cathcarts is able to proudly describe Neves as their ‘family solicitors’ for the past three generations. The Cathcarts have used Neves for both private and commercial property work on numerous occasions over the years. As Mrs Theresa Cathcart recalls; “Members of my family have used Neves for three generations. Their charm, politeness and efficiency combined with expertise in the latest aspects of law have meant that choosing Neves to conduct our legal business is our first and simplest choice.”
And in our 150th year we continue to grow, appointing two new partners.
