Celebrating 175 Years
9 June 2016 marks the firm's
On 9 June 1841, John Rollit
was admitted as an attorney of the Court of Queen's Bench and also
a solicitor of the High Court of Chancery. His portrait is
displayed in our reception at Citadel House.
In due course, John was joined

Thomas Farrell joined in
1879 and the firm's other "name partner", Dick Bladon became a
partner in 1934. The firm remained Rollit Farrell and Bladon until
shortened to Rollits in 2001.
The firm has developed and
changed in untold ways over the last 175 years. It has practised
from various offices in the Old Town in Hull but also in London,
Beverley, Hornsea, Helmsley and, from 1990, in York. There have
been in the region of 80 partners and hundreds of staff who
have made the firm it is today.
Today's society, the legal
profession and the firm itself would be most alien to John
Rollit as he embarked on his legal career but we are rightly
proud that we are the same firm (albeit possibly in the style of
"Trigger's broom") that started life 175 years ago and we will be
both commemorating and celebrating this "significant" birthday over
the next 12 months.
