Atherstone & Cook can trace its roots back about 85 years.
The present firm was founded in 1957 by William Atherstone (now deceased) and Lindsay Cook, the present Senior Partner. Over the years, in past and recent times, the firm has represented high profile clients in civil, criminal and constitutional matters; and also the indigent, without fear or favour. These have included nationalists during the pre-Independence Lancaster House talks; and detainees, activists, and unionists, post-Independence.
This strong foundation has enabled us to build the firm to what it is today: a leading firm committed to producing expert legal advice and advisors.
