Stevenage was designated the United Kingdom’s first New Town On 1 August 1946, new towns were a series of towns built near London after World War II. Since becoming a New Town the population in Stevenage has hugely increased.
It was also the first town in the UK to have dedicated cycle ways installed and is only 19 minutes from London by train to Kings Cross. The MARS rover was built in Stevenage by Airbus who have had a site in the town for over 60 years.
It also has a wealth of well-known people who have either been born or grew up in the town, these include; Ken Follett – worldwide bestselling author, Lewis Hamilton – Five times Formula One world champion, Kevin Phillips – England & Premier League footballer and Golden Boot winner and Ian Poulter – Golfer & Ryder Cup winner.
Tollers opened its Stevenage office in the old town in 2014. Over the last 5 years the Tollers brand has gradually grown in prominence throughout Hertfordshire and as a forward thinking practice we have always been mindful of the expansion opportunities that might arise.
On 1st August 2019 the Partners and staff of former Hertfordshire practice BBW Law LLP joined Tollers LLP. As part of the transaction giving rise to Tollers’ recruitment of the staff, it was also agreed that the expanded Tollers LLP Hertfordshire practice would trade as “Tollers BBW” and would operate from the former BBW offices in Letchworth, Stevenage and Biggleswade for the foreseeable future.
Additionally, the firm are actively searching for a new flagship office for the 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.
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.
