Our history

The firm of HT Legal has grown from the amalgamation of three established and highly respected firms of solicitors that have been serving the Stockport and Hyde communities for over a century. Chronnell Fitzpatrick and Jones was established in 1880 and in 2000 merged with Percy Hibbert and Burden, also of Hyde – a firm whose origins also date back to the last century. The enlarged firm of Chronnel Hibbert then merged in 2014 with Hyde solicitors Harrison Townend and Ormeshers to create one of the largest solicitors firms in the area. Further expansion followed with the opening of offices in Knutsford, and in 2016 these historic identities were combined to become HT Legal (Ltd).

At HT Legal we are proud of our deep provincial roots and the loyalty we enjoy from local clients, which in some cases goes back several generations. The scope and extent of our expertise, however, reflects our position as a large firm with dedicated skills, resources and experience. We have built a strong reputation as one of the region’s leading practices for private and commercial conveyancing, wills & probate and family law.
