Senior Partner Hugh Murrell founded the firm after coming back from London in the early 1990’s, having previously worked for a large city corporate practice. He was convinced that there was a place in the market for a niche commercial law firm offering a more defined and progressive service to businesses in Cornwall and the South West.

With this ethos in mind, Murrell Associates was set up in 2007 and quickly established a strong client base in a variety of sectors; with a number of these clients being regular clients of the firm to the present day. A number of specialist solicitors went on to join the firm, cementing the firm’s ability to offer expertise and commercial experience to our clients.
Since 2007, the firm has expanded in terms of turnover and staff numbers, with the firm extending its services to an ever-growing client base at both a regional and international level.
The firm continues to grow and with effect from 1 December 2018 is has transferred into a limited liability partnership with Henry Maples and Jenny Harbord being introduced into the partnership with a mandate to expand the firm’s specialist offer to businesses.
“The past 10 years have convinced me that there is a growing demand from business for specialist legal services that are accessible, commercial relevant and cost effective. I am really excited about the potential for growing the firm further in the next few years with my fellow partners.”
