Our Experts

The firm prides itself on having attracted very experienced lawyers from across the United Kingdom who have brought with them not only experience and knowledge but established client and professional contacts in those areas.

Our History

Letchers was originally founded in 1825 and was self-titled R. Davy after its founder Robert Davy. It remained in his family for some 71 years until Henry Davy retired in 1896 and sold the firm to Arthur Jackson, whose family is believed to have been involved with the legal profession since 1697. Following Arthur’s purchase of R. Davy, he proceeded to open a number of offices including Ringwood and Fordingbridge. When his two sons were admitted as solicitors, he renamed the firm Jackson & Son.

A few years later, Dr Percy Letcher joined the firm and subsequently ran the Ringwood office. His son Peter qualified as a solicitor in 1948, as did Arthur’s grandson in 1951. In 1952, following an amicable agreement between the two families, they divided the firm with Letcher & Son remaining in Ringwood and Jackson & Son continuing their practice in the Fordingbridge office.

Following the retirement of Peter Letcher in 1991, the management and ownership was passed to Michael Wingate-Saul and subsequently to Michael G. A. Stocken in 2005 and to both Michael Stocken and Ianthe Slinger from 2012 to date.
