Between 2013-2015 Sally Bell and Pete Douglas, the second generation of the family, joined the business full time, we changed our name to County Douglas Law and moved our office to Basingstoke
In 2017 the Keith stepped back from the day to day running of the business and handed over to Sally and Pete, who between them are continuing to move the business forward and will continue to grow with your support.
