About us

Allansons has a history of 20 successful years of providing the best quality service in representing and advising its client in the areas of Crime, Conveyancing, Personal Injury, family and Taxi Law.

Allansons was established in December 1993 by Roger Allanson. He began operating from an office at Boothstown which was originally a branch of Michael Seward & Co. Expansion saw that the boothstown office was run by two former consultants whilst Roger opened an office in Bolton in October 1994.

The Bolton office was mainly manned by Roger and his secretary. In 1996 Roger was one of the first sole practitioners in the country to be awarded a Legal Aid Franchise. The award of the franchise meant additional fee earners and support staff.

In September 2001 we acquired ‘Gabbie & Co of Bolton’ and David Dickson briefly joined the firm before retiring from the legal profession. In December 2002 both the Bolton and Boothstown offices were integrated and re located to 25 Chorley Old Road Bolton.

In December 2006 Mohamed Patel was promoted to become a partner. This was a fantastic achievement for Mohamed, having originally joined the company as a Trainee Solicitor.

In March 2008 we further expanded our services to cover Manchester by purchasing Bouchers Solicitors who have been established in the Gorton area for over 10 years. In December 2008 Roger and Mohamed decided to change the company status by converting the partnership into a limited liability partnership.

We continue to offer our clients a friendly and professional service in many areas of law.
