Our Firm

Our Firm

Hamilton Downing was established by Walton Eddlestone and Philip Hamilton in 1985 and in 2002 merged with Anthony Quinn & Co to become Hamilton Downing Quinn. Continuing the expansion of the firm, in 2003 Hamilton Downing Quinn acquired Arnold Tickner & Co, a well respected private client practice and took on Alan Taylor as a senior conveyancer. In 2006 we acquired Jerrard Saunders Donn and later absorbed the highly respected West London commercial practice of Howard Pinkerfield. From the 1 October 2012 we converted to  LLP status.

We continue to seek growth through the acquisition of carefully selected firms and hiring of talented individuals. Hillary Cohen  joining us in 2009 means we have expanded into construction law and litigation.

I have worked with Walton for several years. In all this time he has consistently provided excellent advice (and counsel) in a wide range of areas - from company formation and structure to protection of IP, contract preparation and assisting in negotiations, and people related issues ? including a successful defence of a particularly challenging industrial tribunal. What marks him out is his ability to take a big picture/strategic view whilst considering detailed commercial and legal implications.
