About Us - Our History

Carlson Cass & Co was established by Jeffrey Carlson in the mid 1970’s with an office in Regent’s Park, London. Jeffrey then set up as a sole practitioner under the trading style Carlson & Co.  Ian Robins joined the practice in 1976.

As the practice grew, an office was opened in Whetstone, North London. The new office proved successful and it was decided to relocate the Regent’s Park office to Whetstone.  

Ian became a partner in 1980 and Carlson & Co remained a two-partner firm until Jeffrey retired as a partner and became a consultant to the firm in June 1992. Jeffrey eventually retired from the practice in December 1993.

Ian continued as a sole practitioner until Daniel Russell joined as an Assistant Solicitor in July 1996.  Daniel is a contentious law specialist who developed his career in Central London.  Daniel soon became invaluable to the practice and was made a partner in Carlson & Co. in July 1998.

There was a change of name in 2009 from Carlson & Co. to Carlsons to reflect the modern, progressive nature of the firm and coincide with the launch of the website.

Carlsons was incorporated in 2010 with Ian and Daniel as directors.

Ian retired from the practice in March 2016. Daniel is now Managing Director and Neil Boonin and Richard Higham are his co-directors.

As well as their Whetstone, North London offices, Carlsons have meeting room facilities by appointment only in the heart of the legal district on Chancery Lane in the City of London.
