Rob Hughes and Andrew Shipley met whilst working as young lawyers in the Solomon Islands, South Pacific which exposed them to an exceptional level of experience at an early stage in their careers. Andrew eventually progressed to become a Judge there.

On their return to the UK they both gained big business experience working in a large legal practice in the City and at large provincial firms.

Their hands-on experience in very different types of legal practice enables them to approach policies differently and see things differently.

They have built a team of likeminded lawyers.
