Outstanding Reputation

Rawlinson & Hunter was established in London in 1933 by Alfred Rawlinson, Robert Hunter and John Hannaford. From the early days the client profile was distinguished enough to include a future Prime Minister

Robert Hunter: one of our founding partners


The original clientele was made up of three distinct groups; inherited wealth, stars of the stage and screen and commercial (including several football pools companies).

Robert Hunter was a frequent business traveller and it was largely due to his efforts in bringing in new international clients that the overseas offices were established; firstly in Bermuda and then in the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Jersey, Guernsey, Switzerland (Geneva and Zurich), Australia, New Zealand and, more recently, Singapore.

Commenting on winning the award for Tax Advisory Firm of the Year, David Barker, Head Of Tax, said:

Tax advice is the lynchpin service for the Firm and we pride ourselves on delivering a consistent, high quality, and rigorous service. We have also continued to expand the depth and breadth of the tax expertise we offer, but without losing the personal service ethos that has always been the cornerstone of our approach. This award reflects these considerable achievements as well as the Firm’s consistent excellence and hard work in providing an essential tax service to our clients.

These are major achievements for the Firm which was up against very strong competition in all categories. Congratulations to everybody.
