Our History

The firm was founded by Southport brothers, Wilmot and Reginald Hodge in 1899, who played an integral part in the community; providing quality legal advice to those in the area. The brothers were shortly joined by a clerk Robert Halsall who subsequently became partner and established the firm we can recognise today, W&R Hodge & Halsall. 1907 saw a strategic office move for the firm to 18 Houghton Street, where we have been ever since – in the heart of Southport.

Over the years the firm has grown with its reputation both merging with other local firms and bringing on experienced partners such as Paul Leadsom, Gordon Hatton and Mark Robinson, who is our current managing partner and has worked here for the past 33 years.

Hodge Halsall is proud to remain as committed to its roots in Southport, as the Hodge brothers were back in the days when they established the firm and continually strive to offer a professional service provided in a friendly and approachable manner.
