Reflections on life in the law

Peter Shillito memoir

In this memoir, written in May 2000, Peter Shillito reflects on his time as a solicitor in a small, growing Gloucestershire practice. He was the first employed lawyer of Willans, hired by Alec in 1960. Peter dedicated over 30 years of his working life to Willans, retiring in 1993. Peter was a significant force behind building the reputation which the firm upholds today. We hope you enjoy the read.
