Elliot Mather was formed in 1987 by the merger of two long established regional practices. Elliot Smith & Co. of Mansfield goes all the way back to 1875 and Mathers of Chesterfield set up in 1905. In 2007, the business incorporated as Elliot Mather LLP, and in 2011, we acquired Taylor Simpson and Mosley, which had been practising law in derby since 1774.
