Our Culture

We value our clients and always put them first. We listen carefully to what you require from your lawyer and the outcome you are trying to achieve and customise our advice to your needs.

We take a ‘one firm’ approach, where all our legal teams work closely together to share ideas and to explore the limits of the law.

We build strong and long lasting relationships with our clients that are built on trust. Many of our clients are long-standing ones, who have worked with us over a number of years and across a range of legal issues.

Our People

We recruit talented lawyers, many of whom are recognised as experts in the independent Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 law firm directories. Our lawyers are supported by a client-focused management and administrative team.

We are proud of the diversity of the people and cultures within Bishop & Sewell, who help us deliver great client service.

We believe in teamwork and our people are used to working across teams in an open and approachable style.

Our History

Bishop & Sewell was established in 1979 by Stephen Bishop and Jill Sewell. Jill retired in 2007, but Stephen now acts as a consultant with our high-net-worth Central London Conveyancing Team. Stephen continues to support the property team and the firm generally, especially in the field of residential conveyancing.

The firm was originally known for its strong property and commercial reputation. Since then it has steadily expanded into a full service firm, covering Residential & Commercial Property, Corporate & Commercial, Employment, Family & Divorce, Private Client and Dispute Resolution for families, businesses and entrepreneurs.

In August 2017, we merged with London firm, Fisher Meredith. They were founded in 1975 and quickly established a reputation amongst clients and other lawyers for upholding high standards of client work, particularly in family law, property, employment and human rights.

The Partners of Bishop & Sewell and Monro Wright & Wasbrough are delighted to announce the merger of their firms with effect from 1st February 2021. The firm now operates as “Bishop & Sewell LLP incorporating Monro Wright & Wasbrough.” 

The merger is part of Bishop & Sewell’s continued planned expansion strategy and will strengthen its Private Client, Property, Family and Dispute Resolution practices, with a team of people perfectly aligned with its culture and values.
