Guy Setford & Chris Setford

Setfords Solicitors

Guy founded Setfords Solicitors in 2006 after working for a number of law firms in London and Surrey as a property lawyer. Guy spent the next 10 years growing the country’s first full-service “dispersed” law firm working alongside his cousin Chris. The firm now has over 170 consultant lawyers working nationwide.

Chris was a commercial lawyer at a boutique law firm in West Sussex before joining his cousin Guy in 2009 to jointly run and expand Setfords Solicitors. The pair organically grew the firm to a turnover in excess of £8 million before taking investment in December 2016 of £3.75 million.
