Pictons

Since Pictons was set up in 1967 we’ve grown to become one of the top law firms in Herts Beds and Bucks. Over the past five decades we’ve established a great reputation as not only one of the best law firms to deal with, we have also ensured that our very personal and sensitive approach to doing business has meant that our clients feel cared for and confident that they can trust us to achieve the outcomes they want.

We’ve had a lot of changes in our almost fifty years, as partners have retired, and now we are seen as a younger, dynamic and more progressive law firm. We’ve got some of the most experienced, best qualified and dedicated legal practitioners in the region, all of whom are committed to getting you the best results.

Our promise to you is that we’ve got all the legal expertise you need to get you to where you want to go, on time and on budget. We take the same care of you whatever your legal needs.

We also think it’s important to give something back and make a contribution to the communities in which we are based. This ethos runs throughout the company and virtually every week someone is doing something for a local charity, while several of our staff are charity Trustees, giving their time expertise to support a wide range of worthwhile causes and organisations.
