Latest News From Stewarts Solicitors


Stewarts Solicitors - a brief history of the firm

In 1902 Alex Stewart, Grandfather of Stewarts' current Managing Director Charles E Stewart, commenced practicing in Newtownards. The practice was known as Alexander Stewart and provided legal services to the people of Newtownards and the surrounding rural hinterland for many years.

In 1940 Alex Stewart was succeeded by his son William C. Stewart who continued to practice under the name of Alex Stewart and Son until 1974, when the practice was in turn passed to his son, Charles E. Stewart.

On the 1st November 1999 Charles E Stewart and John A Beatty commenced trading as a Partnership under the name of Stewarts Solicitors. In 2008 Norman Scott who had practiced for many years as Senior Partner in the firm known as F.J. Orr & Company joined Stewarts on a salaried basis. For almost three years we enjoyed and were privileged to work with Norman up and until his very sad and untimely death on the 25th September 2010.

With effect from 2 September 2013, Stewarts Solicitors became incorporated pursuant to the Solicitors’ (Incorporated Practice) Regulations 2007 (‘the Regulations’) of the Law Society of Northern Ireland.

As a result the partnership of Stewarts Solicitors transferred to Stewarts Solicitors (“the Company”) the entirety of its goodwill, business and assets and the Company assumed all of the liabilities and commitments of the partnership. The transfer included the assignment to the Company of all contracts, including client engagements, with effect from 2 September 2013. All related documents, records, confidential or privileged information and intellectual property have been transferred to the Company and the partnership has ceased to trade.

The Company is registered in Northern Ireland (company number NI 603484, registered office 3-4 Donegall Quay, Belfast, BT1 3EA) and will continue to use the name ‘Stewarts Solicitors’ as the trading name of the business. In practical terms there will be no noticeable or obvious changes – the change in status will not affect the services we provide to our clients and the same staff will continue to provide services to our clients.

"Over the last 111 years our firm has developed from a small country practice into thriving province wide law firm with a combined staff of over fifty operating out of three offices in Belfast, Newtownards and Ballymena and sub-office in Kircubbin.

We seek to adapt to meet all challenges and improve our service to clients. The new generation together with the experienced staff members many with over 20 years experience will strive to accomplish these aims.

As life itself changes, so must the legal profession to meet the fresh challenges ahead and working with our clients we can be confident of achieving their goals"

Charles E. Stewart
