Our history

    Parts of the Firm have their roots back in the 19th century. In 1997, the firms of Porter Bartlett & Mayo and Dodson Harding joined to become the business we have today: Porter Dodson. We became a limited liability partnership (Porter Dodson LLP) in 2013.

    Our people

    We value our people extremely highly and seek to offer a fantastic working environment, competitive salaries and benefits, and interesting and varied work. We have a very focused development programme in place and are keen to enable everyone to be the very best they can be.

    Our focus on relationships

    Our investment in our people reflects in the way we work with our clients and professional contacts. These hugely important relationships are paramount in our service delivery. We take time to listen, understand, plan and implement with skill and flair.

    We want to build a long-standing relationship with you but we also know that satisfied clients tell their family, friends and business contacts about us. So our future success depends on getting things right for you.

    In short, it’s all about you.
