Long Established and Respected
In October 2020 the company Pluck Andrew Solicitors Limited was formed, with Matthew Lord, Rachael Cox, Richard Carlin and Catherine Rogers as Directors. This time of change also saw the retirement of Jill Andrew, a founding member and long-serving Senior Partner. Jill is now a Consultant with the firm. Matthew joined the firm in 2000, and Rachael, Richard and Catherine all trained with the firm, becoming Partners in 2017.
In the 1930s John Westbrook founded a Law Firm in Norfolk Street in Hyde: Over the years, the firm grew in both reputation and size and had various changes of name when Partners in the firm changed along the way. In the 1980s, the firm became known as Pluck Andrew & Co when Jill Andrew, joined and formed a successful partnership with Peter Pluck.
In 1989, Jill was joined by her brother, Guy Rogers, and together they oversaw a successful period of expansion, including the taking over of Hibbert Pownall & Newton, on Old Street in Ashton-Under-Lyne in 1998.
Since then the company has experienced stability and growth to become one of the biggest law firms in Tameside.
