About

Pitmans LLP is the largest law firm in the Thames Valley, with offices in Reading, Berkshire and in the City of London. But it’s not size that has helped grow our reputation.

All the time, our campaigning, entrepreneurial spirit attracts the best and brightest people from the UK’s largest and most respected law firms. With national expertise, regional leadership and the ability to deliver locally, we’ve been established now for over 150 years. But one thing we don’t do is live in the past. Not these days.
