Info & Careers
Welcome to the rhw solicitors website. Based in Guildford in Surrey, our strong team of legal professionals have a wealth of experience covering everything from buying or selling a business, advising on employment law through to setting up a will. We have been in the Surrey Area for over 180 years.
A Short History of rhw
RHW Solicitors were founded back in 1835 when George Crafter established the firm of Burton & Son in Central London. This later became Rodgers Horsley & Burton until the Guildford associates of the practice merged with Whitemans in 1991. The company became Rodgers Horsley Whitemans. The name was abbreviated to RHW Solicitors in December 2002.
Where we are Now
rhw have a large and well known Family Law team who deal with everything from pre-nuptial agreements to civil partnerships, divorce and mediation. We also have an extremely fast growing Dispute Resolution team and a very well regarded Corporate team. The Private Client team handle the day to day legal requirements of hundreds of people, dealing with wills, trusts, inheritance tax and probate with the professionalism you would expect from an established and experienced legal practice. If you are moving house or buying a commercial property, our residential and commercial property teams have a huge amount of experience to ensure your interests are protected.
If you are looking for a firm of solicitors based in and around Guildford or Surrey, or if you are looking for an alternative to some of the impersonal law firms based in London, rhw can help you and your business. rhw actively provide legal support and raise funds for many local organisations including the Guildford YMCA and ‘Challengers’ Charity.
