Leeds Day is one of the largest practices in the region, with offices based in Huntingdon, St. Neots and St. Ives.
We are different from some other law firms. Our ethos is about being clear in our communications, upfront and transparent in relation to costs and client orientated – as demonstrated by our accreditation with the Law Society Lexcel award for excellence in client care.
We aim to deliver not just legal advice, but provide practical solutions to benefit our clients. Our teams are experienced, knowledgeable and approachable.
In all market sectors we are alive to the challenges and opportunities facing national, regional and local businesses. We are pro-active in our approach and believe that good communications are the basis of successful relationships.
The modern practice of Leeds Day was established in 1989, through the amalgamation of two firms known as Leeds Smith and Day & Son, both with roots going back 150 years.
In the 1840’s George Game Day, founder of Day & Son acted for promoters of parliamentary bills to improve the navigation of the River Great Ouse and in the bringing of the railways to the area. He is known to have called on both George Stephenson, inventor of “The Rocket”, and the famous Victorian Engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, as expert witnesses in securing official sanction for the improvements planned for the area.
Edward Thurlow Leeds Smith’s father founded the Leeds Smith side of the Practice in 1856.
In September 2002 six of the Partners continued as the Successor Partnership carrying on the name of Leeds Day into the future. There are now 7 partners and over 50 support staff.
The firm maintains close links to the local community in which it is based. Involvement in local groups, charities and business communities is important to us.
