Our History

In May 2002 Spratt Endicott demerged from Shoosmiths, who first started the Banbury practice in 1955. All the existing staff moved with John Spratt and David Endicott- the new Senior Partner and Managing Partner respectively.

Since the demerger we have striven to continually improve our service offering, frequently updating our practises and technology to ensure clients receive the best service possible.

In 2014, we expanded into the market town of Brackley, South Northamptonshire, opening a brand new office there to support the thriving community. Later the same year, Spratt Endicott merged with Alfred Truman Solicitors of Bicester and Buckingham, expanding our reach to four locations across three counties. We're now a company with 13 Directors and over 140 staff in ten specialist departments.

In May 2018 Andrew Woods replaced David Endicott as Managing Director.

Giving you national level experience and expertise

All of our major national-level experience and expertise is utilised to provide the best possible service to our clients. As part of this approach, we work hard to engender a positive team culture.

Living proof that business travels very easily now, we service a range of local, national and international clients.

How we’re looking to further improve our service

Looking forward, we will carry on offering you the highest levels of client service, value and legal expertise. Our success continues to attract key individuals from large City practices, further improving the firm’s ability to meet our clients’ needs.
