We can trace our firm’s history back to 1777 and although much has changed in that time there is one constant: our desire to be a dependable, trusted advisor to our clients. We are proud of our ability to adapt and truly understand the needs of our clients at any given point in time.

Winckworth Sherwood has earned a reputation for successfully delivering high value, high profile projects throughout the UK and demonstrating the highest levels of client service. The facts above speak for themselves.
