Serving clients nationally and internationally from its offices in Tunbridge Wells, Kings Hill and London, Cripps is the largest legal practice in the county with over 360 members of staff. It is recognised countrywide for its corporate, real estate and private client work.
Cripps offers the best of both worlds to its clients. It is large enough to have specialists in all key legal areas, and small enough to deliver a personalised, partner-led service. The firm offers clients comprehensive, customer-focused legal expertise, adapting to their requirements and focusing on getting them where they want to be, as easily as possible.
In 2016 Cripps moved into new headquarters in Tunbridge Wells, the first substantial office building to have been built in the town for more than 25 years. The move was prompted by the firm outgrowing its existing Tunbridge Wells offices, and followed a ten-year search for new premises in the town.
Gavin Tyler, Managing Partner, said: “Kent has been home to Cripps since it was first founded in 1852. There are some fantastic companies based in the county – it is a great location for modern, professional and innovative businesses. As well as having its own diverse and vibrant economy, it is well-connected for doing business with clients from both London and mainland Europe. Kent is an inspiring place to work and live, offering an excellent quality of life. We are proud to be based here.”
Cripps is a top 100 UK firm with 49 partners, and a turnover of £29.2m. Its business specialists advise on corporate issues and transactions, commercial contracts and intellectual property, employment, disputes, property law and much more. It also offers bespoke personal advice to individuals, families and family businesses.
