Personal relationships

With over 230 years of history we have some very long standing clients.  For example, we have advised Kentstone Properties Limited since it was incorporated in 1862.  This makes it the second eldest trading company in the county. 

For individuals we have often advised more than three generations of families providing continuity and innovation as the changing regulations offer challenges and opportunities.

Whitehead Monckton became a Limited Company in 2014 and joined LawNet in August 2015.
