About Us

Comptons was founded by Stephen Compton together with his wife Jean in 1987 as a boutique property specialist firm to deal almost exclusively with property investment, development and dealing companies. Stephen and Jean were joined in 1990 by Nicholas Goldreich who founded the highly successful litigation department within the firm.

The firm has continued to expand and is now a full service law firm with particular strengths in real estate projects, property litigation, enfranchisement, residential conveyancing and commercial property. 

Despite its expansion Comptons has retained its core values of building long term relationships with clients, paternalism towards its clients and staff and team work without the politics you can find in larger firms. We will work as one unit to fully service the requirements of our clients.
