1855 – Family Beginnings
In 1855 T.J. Robinson became a Solicitor and founded the firm. His son, James Wallace Robinson, qualified in 1873 and T.J. Robinson’s grandson, Thomas Wallace Robinson, qualified in 1884. They both became partners in the firm, as did James’s grandson Sydney Robinson. Just prior to the First World War T.W. Robinson took Charles Henry Morgan into the partnership..
The firm was based in Colmore Row, Birmingham until the 1920s when it moved to 52 Newhall Street. Bill Cartwright joined the firm in 1924 becoming a partner in 1945 and remained until he retired as a consultant in 1994.
Paul Hughes, who joined the firm in 1984, and Tim Langford, who started his journey in 1990, played pivotal roles in shaping the history of Wallace Robinson & Morgan. In 1994, the firm centralised its operations in Solihull, a significant milestone in our growth, and in 1999, we expanded our presence by opening the Dorridge office.
Tragically, in August 2023, we bid farewell to our esteemed colleague Paul Hughes. His legacy, commitment and dedication to the firm continue through his daughter, Anna Hobbs, who qualified as a solicitor in August 2018 and became a Director in September 2023. Together with Tim Langford and their management team, they lead Wallace Robinson & Morgan into the future.
