Established in 1899 and 2011 respectively, Rollestons Solicitors and McElwee Solicitors LLP client base includes companies, owner-managed businesses, farmers, banks, as well as private clients. Both firms joined to become Rolleston McElwee Solicitors LLP in late 2019. This merger represents further strategic growth.


At the time of the merger, Rolleston McElwee Solicitors LLP managing partner Eugene O'Connor stated as follows. Rolleston McElwee Solicitors LLP is a dynamic, client-focused, forward-thinking firm concentrating on such areas as commercial and company law, property sales and purchases, litigation, landlord and tenant law, wills and administration of estates (probate), tax, liquor licensing, intellectual property, personal injuries, litigation and agricultural/farming law.

“This merger represents further strategic growth for the firm and will allow us support our clients with additional expertise and experience and enable us to expand into new areas of legal practice whilst also concentrating on our core values, most important of which is a commitment to providing high quality and commercially focused advice to our clients.”
