Barnes Roffe - a passage in time

Tracing back to our roots in 1899, Barnes Roffe has grown out of a commitment to providing our clients with a lasting partnership that is mutually beneficial.

We may have started out small, but we are a family styled business which over the last 100 years has expanded our offices to accommodate more than 100 employees in 4 different sites - a substantial growth from our founder, William H. Barnes' first solo office in 1899.

Opening his doors for the first time on 1st August 1899, William H. Barnes set the foundations for our firm which to this day is dedicated towards going the extra mile for our clients - a family like culture which has been passed on and diligently followed by unrelated professional individuals who collectively strive towards the same objective of doing more for our clients.

Yet we would like to believe our 'expansion' has not only been internal. To date we have helped hundreds of graduates across the UK, who have since gone on to build successful careers and businesses of their own.

And more than 100 years later, our firm is still going strong, offering clients and colleagues alike, a culture which always strives to do more.
