Fletchers 25th Anniversary

2nd November 2012

Hard to believe, but 25 years ago today we started a little firm called Fletchers Solicitors. Back in 1987, the office you see here housed just 9 employees, including our current chairman Rob Fletcher. From these humble beginnings, we?ve now grown to 160 employees and bigger, better offices. But one thing hasn?t changed in that time ? and that?s our promise to give our customers 100% commitment. We?d like to thank everyone who?s worked for and with us over the past 25 years and helped make us the company we are today. Treat yourselves to a glass of champagne and here?s to the next 25!

As much as it pains me to start on a clich‚, there is nevertheless a great deal of truth to Dylan?s words.

Reigning British Superbike champion Tommy Hill gives praise to Fletchers

9th March 2012

REIGNING British Superbike champion Tommy Hill knows only too well how important it is for young and aspiring bikers to attract sponsorship when they are first starting out in the sport.
