Despite being established in the region for over 200 years, this firm remains hungry to grow and is embarking on its newest adventure by opening a new Thames Valley office this year. They have a real desire and hunger to evolve and grow with the times which is a trait often not found in established firms with such a deep-rooted history in the area.
