Ansons was set-up in 2004 and employs 50 people, including six partners across its two offices in Cannock and Lichfield.  Hinckley Birch & Brown was established in 1991 and operated from offices in St John Street. It specialises in charity law and commercial property as well as private client services for its well-established client base.
