About Guillaumes LLP, Solicitors Surrey
In 2007, Weybridge’s two most prominent and established legal practices, Guillaumes Solicitors and Gosling & Wilkinson, succeeded in merging.
In June 2013 Guillaumes expanded by opening a new office on Esher High Street in place of our Church Street Weybridge office, but retaining our main office at Ibex House, Baker Street, Weybridge.
Guillaumes Solicitors was established in 1836, and located in London and the South East, before settling in Weybridge, Surrey, in the 1950s.
Gosling & Wilkinson were established in Weybridge in the late 19th century, before occupying the Church Street offices since about 1905.
Guillaumes therefore has the expertise to manage substantial and complex transactions in most areas of legal work.
We offer a high quality service, irrespective of the matter, and if not already a valued client, we look forward to welcoming you to Guillaumes.
