History

1935

Just prior to the outbreak of World War II, Louis Goldwyn established the firm. Louis served in the forces during the war, and upon his return he welcomed his brother, Lesley Goldwyn, into the organisational fold.

1960’s to 80’s

Retaining its foundational ties to London, the firm embarked on a trajectory of expansion, spearheaded by partner John Bermon, who established offices in South End on Sea and Harrow. A strategic consolidation effort in the seventies saw the merger of the Harrow office back into the London headquarters.

1990’s

Continuing its trajectory of growth and adaptation, the firm expanded into Bristol and also completed an acquisition near Tower Bridge in London, further cementing its position as a preeminent provider of professional services.

During the expansion period between to 1960s to the 1990s, Goldwyns grew significantly, from a small team led by two partners to a team of nine partners and approximately eighty employees.

In 1997, strategic decisions prompted a reinforcement of the company’s presence in London with the acquisition of another esteemed firm, alongside the de-merger of the Bristol and South End on Sea offices.

Present Day

While the firm has evolved since its beginnings, the commitment to delivering exceptional service and upholding the highest standards of professionalism has remained unchanged throughout. Under the direction of Senior Partners, Martin Myers and Sumit Selli, the firm operates from the City of London whilst, delivering excellence to our clients across London, the UK and in New York, as well as the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
