About Us

We attribute our position, as one of the leading niche Commercial legal practices in the East Midlands, to our partners and staff.  As proactive advisers, our role is to understand our clients’ businesses and to help our clients formulate commercial and constructive solutions which meet their needs. This philosophy is central to the firm’s culture. 

We pride ourselves on the close, friendly and effective working relationships that we build with our clients in order to provide a first class service as evidenced by our low client and staff attrition levels.  We are demanding of ourselves both in the commitment to our clients and in the time we take in recruitment and training.  Our staff are our main asset and we are proud of them.  We know that our business is ultimately judged by how they perform.

Our people have at their fingertips leading edge technology to enable them to provide a quality service.  We aim to be competitive on price.  Where appropriate we can provide flexible charging arrangements including fixed, capped and blended fees.

In the legal market place it is unusual to find a firm of our relatively compact size dealing with substantial clients and their complex legal problems but we have the ability to serve both the business and private client equally and provide comprehensive and prompt partner led or supervised advice.

This uncommon combination of expertise, immediacy and cost competitiveness has helped establish our reputation and enables us to maintain our special niche in the law.

The firm takes its name from three of its three Senior Partners between 1945 – 2024 namely, the late Norman Ashton Hill MBE, Geoffrey Bond OBE, and Christopher Gigg.  It is notable that we still act for businesses connected to the firm’s very first client.  In 2024 we will celebrate 90 years in practice and you will find us in offices on a business park close to Nottingham City Centre.
