Being the longest established law firm in Burnham-on-Sea doesn’t of itself give us reason to believe we are the leading solicitors practice in the area. However, combined with our acknowledged wealth of experience, expertise and in-depth “feel” for our community, we feel confident in our ability to provide a legal service second-to-none in the locality.
Our firm was established over 130 years ago in the town and has been providing a high level of professional legal service to individuals, families and businesses consistently ever since.
Originally established by its founder Benjamin Comer Board as B C Board Solicitor in 1879 the firm later became B C Board & Stiling when a partnership was formed with W H C Stiling. Following the founder's death the firm became Board, Stiling and Wolstenholme until 1958 when the name changed to Board, Stiling and Alletson upon Herbert Alletson joining the partnership. Over the years the name has been steadily shortened for practical purposes until today we are known simply as Alletsons.
Interestingly Alletsons is still in the same street in Burnham where it began life over a century and a quarter ago. College Street has been its home over three different centuries and the firm moved to its current offices in 1985.
Today the firm has two experienced partners who specialise in different aspects of the legal services we offer our clients.
The partners are supported by associate Hallam Merryweather.
