For over 150 years, through good times and bad, Thorntons has being doing what’s right for people and businesses.
We can trace our roots back to 1857 when Sir Thomas Thornton started his own legal business in Dundee. Following a number of significant mergers over the years, the firm continued to grow. In 1985 Thornton Oliver WS was created as a result of the merger of Thornton Dickie & Brand and Clark Oliver. Then in 1990 Thornton Oliver WS merged with Fergusson Robertson & Co, creating Thorntons WS, which at the time, was the largest law firm outside Edinburgh and Glasgow. In 2005, the company structure changed from Thorntons WS to Thorntons Law LLP.
Over the years, the firm has expanded from our heartland in Tayside to Angus, Fife, Perthshire, Edinburgh – and more recently Glasgow. Today, Thorntons is now one of the largest full-service legal firms in Scotland.
Our success has been built upon values that still guide us today; exceptionally high levels of service; the talent of our people; and the commitment to long-term partnerships with our clients.
