Rawlinson & Hunter LLP 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.
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 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, Australia, New Zealand and, more recently, Singapore.
We have grown significantly in size since we first opened and are now a diverse workforce of about 250 individuals with some exciting talent. We are proud to have established such distinguished clients early on and our reputation for technical excellence, personal tailoring and commitment has only strengthened over time.
We have won a number of prestigious awards, including:
Accountancy Firm of the Year in 2017 and 2019
Tax Advisory Firm of the Year in 2017 and 2019
Trust Company of the Year 2017
"We are absolutely thrilled with these awards, and we are proud and delighted by every one. They are a testament to all of our staff who work extremely hard behind the scenes to make the process as smooth as possible for our clients. Their exceptional skills, experience and hard work have helped us to deliver the highest quality service to each and every client who has entrusted us with their tax, accounting and trust affairs. This is a fantastic result."
