Lawson Lewis Blakers solicitors celebrated 140 years in Eastbourne at the Town Hall, Eastbourne on 22nd October 2015.
The evening was attended by many members of the firm past and present, other lawyers and friends. On display were pictures of notable events that occurred in 1875, such as the building of the Grand Hotel in Eastbourne. It was particularly poignant to see a photograph displayed of the bombing of the offices which were occupied by Lawson Lewis in 1943. Jeremy Sogno is the third generation of his family to be a partner in the firm, he is now joined by Nadine Ashford and Mark Barrett (formerly of Blaker, Son and Young in Lewes).
Jeremy thanked the guests for supporting the firm over the years and made reference to the late Mr. John Porter and his own father who were longstanding partners in the firm.
A celebration was held in Lewes to acknowledge Blaker, Son and Young being established in the town since 1830.
Peacehaven Office too had a party to celebrate the branch providing legal services to Peacehaven and surrounding areas since 2000.
