  • Posted

We are delighted to announce that as of 1st July 2017, the Partners of Hatten Wyatt are incorporating the long standing practice of Stephens & Son Solicitors into the Firm. Over the last decade Hatten Wyatt has grown significantly and has incorporated several practices throughout the Kent area thus providing a greater range of legal services to the local communities which our offices serve. This news comes less than a year after the incorporation of Pengelly & Rylands of Tenterden which is another well-known high street practice that has gone from strength to strength. Stephens & Son is a part of Chatham’s heritage, established over 224 years ago dating back to 1793. The team at Stephens & Son are very proud of the firm’s long history. It is a real testament to their constant efforts to provide an excellent service to both individuals and business clients. Stephens & Son have a great reputation which will complement the rest of the practices in the group and something that is very important to Senior Partner Jasvinder Singh Gill. At the same time the Stephens & Son office will relocate to 1 Cambridge Terrace, Chatham, ME4 4RG. Jacqueline Shicluna, Managing Partner at Stephens & Son, said “The partners and staff at Stephens & Son are delighted to be joining forces with Hatten Wyatt and becoming part of their group. We are looking forward to working with new colleagues and to ensuring that the Stephens & Son name, which has been in existence since 1793, continues into the future.” The firm now has 12 partners and a total of 80 staff across all offices, all of whom deal with their specialist areas of law. We are solely focused on achieving the best possible outcome for the client. The firm prides itself on being abreast of current thinking and practice and is able to provide cost effective advice as well as practical solutions for clients. Paramount to the firm’s approach is ensuring that the relationship with the client is exceptional. The firm prides itself in playing a very important part in the local community and supports many projects and events through sponsorship and volunteering such as the Ellenor Hospice, Gravesend’s Christmas tree, the Paul Greengrass Cinema at The Woodville Halls, Northfleet Carnival as well as local sports clubs. Hatten Wyatt also likes to nurture young talent by taking on a number of students from local schools to help them complete their work experience. By doing so we hope to find the next rising star to join the team! The firm is proud to sponsor and judge the KEiBA 2017 Small Business of the Year Award, we believe that this is a key award and it is important to celebrate the strength of the business community in Kent where there is real talent and innovation within the area. Jasvinder Singh Gill, Senior Partner at Hatten Wyatt explains “We are thrilled to announce the incorporation of Stephens & Son within the firm. Both firms are long standing and have great reputations within the local community, with clients being referred by existing clients and other professionals. As a firm we have a clear vision for the future as we continue to grow and offer trusted legal services to the people of Kent”
