Over 100 years of Lawrence & Wightman
John Lawrence, who was just 21 years old at the time, started his practice way back in 1896. Not long after setting up offices in Temple Street, Birmingham, Elliott Wightman joined John and Lawrence & Wightman was formed.
The two flourished until Elliott was called up for army service in the middle of the First World War. By the end of the War, John decided to retire from the partnership, leaving Elliott as the sole principal.
