Rollits

Rollits LLP is a leading local law firm with roots in Hull dating back to 1841, when founder John Rollit became a solicitor and opened his law practice in Bowlalley Lane. Over the last 175 years, Rollits has occupied various premises, all within a stone’s throw of each other in Hull’s old town, as it continues to grow. Now employing 100 staff, and with another office in York, it is one of Yorkshire’s leading law firms, and is recognized as such in the leading independent law directories.

Highly regarded as a commercial practice with specialist private client capabilities, Rollits works with a range of businesses, from major PLCs to small private companies, as well as substantial charitable organisations and institutions. As a firm, Rollits values the importance of sector knowledge and has developed sector expertise in agriculture, charities, education, family business, food, construction and development, renewables and social housing.

Since 1999, Rollits has held the Lexcel accreditation – the Law Society’s international practice management standard. This kite mark is only awarded to firms which meet the highest management and customer care standards, and follows rigorous annual independent assessment to ensure the required standards of excellence are met.
