Our team of solicitors are all experts in their chosen field and, as a firm, we have always taken great pride in the services we offer to our clients.

History

Herbert Baron & Co was established in 1922 and the firm was absorbed into Baron Grey in 1994 when Vincent Hambleton-Grey took over the running of the practice. As sole practitioner, Vincent has worked tirelessly to keep the firm’s aims and values consistent for over 30 years now and is proud to have a loyal and dedicated team of solicitors assisting him. 

'Belgian village on the Thames'

 441 Richmond Road, known locally as Langtry House, has had a varied and interesting past. The surrounding area was home to 6,000 Belgian refugees who formed a community in East Twickenham during the First World War. When they weren’t working at the local munitions factory, the Belgians enjoyed traditional dishes of mussels & frites  and spent their free time visiting local Belgian style cafes. A memorial celebrating the Belgian connection stands at Warren Gardens in Twickenham.

Community

Baron Grey Solicitors are keen supporters of many local charities, particularly those focusing on sport for both adults and youths.

As the main sponsors of two cycling clubs, Twickenham Cycling Club and Minet Ladies Cycling Club, we regularly contribute towards and take part in their racing events.

In the past Baron Grey has also sponsored the Great River Race, an event that takes place annually on the Thames from the Docklands to Richmond.
