The modern practice of Leeds Day was established in 1989, through the amalgamation of two firms known as Leeds Smith and Day & Son, with roots going back over 175 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.
On 1st April 2019, the traditional partnership firm converted to a LLP and is now known as Leeds Day LLP. There are currently 5 partners (members), 2 salaried partners, totalling over 60 lawyers and staff based across 3 offices.
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.
