Our history

A message from our senior partner

Andrew Holt, our senior partner is a specialist in commercial dispute resolution and has over 20 years’ experience in this field.

Over the last five years, in particular, he has coordinated the firm’s representation for the National Farmers Union’s legal advice scheme, where Wilkin Chapman is the regional panel solicitors for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

We are a people business - we care about what we do, how we do it and we are integral within the communities in which we live and work.

Our commitment to quality

We are distinguished by our approachability, innovation and commitment to providing the best service we can to our clients along with achieving and maintaining quality standards such as Lexcel - The Law Society's accreditation standard and ISO 9001 in our recoveries department.

We believe that this quality, service led approach is also reflected by the number of accreditations and recommendations that we regularly achieve with the UK's leading directories, such as Chambers, the Legal 500, Lawyer UK 200 and Lex 100. We've earned the Employer Recognition Scheme Gold award from the MOD, the highest honour from the Armed Forces Covenant, to recognise excellence in supporting military staff and families. We are also the NFU's Legal Panel Member for Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire.
