Tollers Solicitors Growing in Hertfordshire
As a leading regional law practice operating throughout the South and East Midlands, we first opened our doors for business in the Hertfordshire town of Stevenage in 2014. While over the last 5 years the Tollers brand has gradually grown in prominence throughout Hertfordshire, we have always been mindful of expansion opportunities that might arise. In line with that, Duncan Nicholson, our Managing Partner, is delighted to announce that the Partners and staff of former Hertfordshire practice BBW Law LLP joined Tollers LLP on 1st August 2019!
Although BBW Law LLP has ceased to trade, the former clients of the Firm have all been offered the opportunity to transfer their legal affairs to Tollers. Not only does this provide assurances to clients in relation to the ongoing service of their legal matters, it will also ensure that the former clients of
BBW Law LLP are able to benefit from the wider breadth of services that Tollers are able to offer in relation to both business and personal legal services. As part of the transaction, it has been agreed that the expanded Tollers LLP Hertfordshire practice will trade as “Tollers BBW” and will operate from the former BBW offices in Letchworth, Stevenage and Biggleswade for the foreseeable future.
Tollers has exciting plans for investment and growth in the Hertfordshire area. The joining of the former BBW teams is the first step in that process. Additionally, Tollers are actively searching for a new flagship office for its expanded Hertfordshire team. An announcement on the new flagship office is due very soon with a view to it opening its doors in early 2020.
Tollers was founded in 1877, has 175 members of staff, with offices and a geographic footprint throughout Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. The Firm provides a ‘full service’ offering in terms of its legal provision. Whether it is a commercial issue that requires Tollers ‘For Business’ teams or a personal matter being dealt with by the ‘For You’ teams, clients can expect genuine client focus and high quality legal advice. As a Firm, Tollers is aware of the importance of maintaining strong and lasting relationships with its clients.

We are delighted to be able to offer a more complete service to our clients in the Hertfordshire area and look forward to building long lasting relationships with the local communities we serve”.
The former practice of BBW Law LLP has been practicing in Hertfordshire since 2001, following the merger of two practices formerly known as Brignalls of Stevenage and Knebworth; and Balderston Warren of Letchworth, Baldock and Biggleswade. Brignalls was founded in 1912, whilst Balderston Warren could trace its history back to 1765.
Managing Partner Duncan Nicholson says “This is an exciting development for Tollers LLP. As a Firm we are committed to expanding our practice in Hertfordshire and providing the highest levels of service to the clients and the communities we serve as a whole. The support and feedback that we have had from the former clients and staff of BBW has been extremely positive and this is very gratifying. We are working hard on the task of bringing clients and staff alike together in our new venture. The message from me to the market is a simple one. At Tollers we believe in Exceptional people, Exceptional Service, Exceptional delivery. We look forward to serving Hertfordshire as successfully as we have done our traditional markets for over a century.”
