About us

We were founded by Benjamin Currey in 1812 in the City of Westminster, and since then have offered personalised and partner-led advice to land-owning and other families throughout the country, some of whom have been clients since the early 19th century. Many others have been clients for several generations.


We are and intend to remain a small partner-led firm. The partnership comprises eight partners (which brings the total number of partners in the history of the firm to thirty three). Our current partners are:

What we do

We offer our clients strategic advice tailored to their specific needs, focussed on protecting wealth for successive generations. We are rarely able to take on discrete pieces of work for individuals with whom we have no previous association.

We do not give corporate, matrimonial or litigation advice but recommend specialist advisers in relevant fields according to our clients’ individual needs.
