Trowers & Hamlins LLP is a international law firm with offices throughout the UK and Middle East. The firm undertakes work around the globe and has over 100 partners and approximately 700 employees.


In 1777 the practice was run by Richard and John Woodhouse. Since that time it has undergone more than 20 changes of identity and amalgamations. Walter Trower (who was knighted in 1915) joined the partnership in 1886, and the name Hamlin originated in a firm called Hamlin & Grammer which was practising in 1875. Though the two firms using these names had been in association for many years, it was not until 1987 that they finally integrated to become Trowers & Hamlins.


The firm's main office is in the City of London with three UK regional offices in Birmingham, Exeter and Manchester. Outside the UK it has more than 80 lawyers working in five offices across the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region. Additionally, Trowers & Hamlins has long established links with firms in Singapore, Germany and France.
