About Duncan Cotterill

Like you, we take opportunities when they arise. It's this enterprising attitude that's led us to set up and grow offices in four distinct markets. It's helped us to build an energetic, diverse and collegial partnership. And it's what's attracted enterprising people and organisations to work with us ... time after time.

Our values

Everything that we do is built upon the firm's values. Our values are unique - they are why people enjoy working for the firm and why our clients relish working alongside us. These values tell a story of not only who we are, but also what we stand for, what is important to us, and what has been key to our long standing success.
