Thomas Partridge Bendall established his legal practice in Rous Road, Newmarket, in 1880, and was joined some 20 years later by his sons Reginald and Archie. From 1910 to 1912, the firm expanded with new offices in Soham, Ely, and Mildenhall. When Archie died in 1935, the firm was bought by the Morgan & Nicholls partnership, neither of whom survived beyond WWII.
Geoff Roberts bought into the practice in 1947, gradually buying out his partners to become sole principal in 1955. By the end of the 1970s, Geoff had been joined by 4 partners, including Andrew Geddes. In 1983, the partners decided to go their separate ways, and the Ely and Soham offices became independent practices. Geoff continued in the practice with Andrew until 2000.
Today, Andrew, together with his partner Jacqueline Spencer and a qualified team of solicitors and legal executives, works from both offices. They offer a broad range of services with particular expertise in domestic and commercial conveyancing, family law, and wills and probate.
