Roythornes' Spalding office

About Us

Roythornes has been serving businesses and individuals across generations for over 85 years. Our strategically located offices are hubs of trusted advice to cover all eventualities.  From individual clients going through some of the most difficult experiences in their lives to thriving national businesses looking to take their next steps at home or abroad, we provide a full spectrum of commercial advice.  Our presence, in turn, benefits the community by being able to advise enterprises looking to provide jobs for thousands of people living in uncertain times.

The firm was founded in 1934 by Edmund Roythorne, with the initial intention of providing a legal resource for those involved with the shooting and game communities. We soon developed to be specialists in agriculture, property and subsequently the food and drink sector, picking up other specialisms and services along the way. Over the years, we have moved offices several times before finding our homes in Spalding, Peterborough, Nottingham , Birmingham and Alconbury to be as close to our core clients as possible.  

Roythornes is a one-stop shop for expert legal advice. After having had their business matters dealt with by the firm, many of our commercial clients often go on to have their personal affairs attended to by other departments. We are motivated by making a difference to our clients’ lives; we embrace the individual talents of our solicitors to ensure everyone is dealt with by a recognised expert who has empathy with their situation and detailed industry knowledge.

We develop longstanding relationships with clients and help generations of families develop and grow through good times and bad.  Importantly, we take a holistic view of family businesses to ensure that the advice we give the business is also right for the family that owns, runs and depends on it.

Our website gives you the opportunity to take a look through some of the ways in which we can help.  The ‘our people’ section also talks a little more about our teams and the way we work. You can also make an initial enquiry, pay your bills online and check how your matter is progressing.  You can also sign up for one of our sector-specific seminars and events which are designed to inform and update our clients and contacts with the very latest developments in the law and how it affects their business.  For details of our latest events please click here.
