Company Profile

HISTORY OF THE FIRM

E H Tebbutt & Sons has been providing quality legal services to clients for over 100 years.  The firm was established in 1910 by Ernest Henry Tebbutt, who was subsequently joined by his sons William Alston Tebbutt in 1923 and Roy Elliott Tebbutt in 1926.

Roy Tebbutt's son H W (Peter) Tebbutt joined the firm in 1953 and retired as a consultant in 2005.   The firm has always practised in the vicinity of Martin Place being sited at 28 Martin Place  until 1967 and then 82 Pitt Street until 1982.

The firm moved to its present building at 115 Pitt Street in 1982 and occupied level 15 for nearly 25 years. In September 2006 the firm moved to refurbished premises on level 16.

The new premises provide a lighter comfortable and pleasant work environment for our staff and for our clients.
