“We have grown up around Rushtons as our family business, as many of our clients have done with theirs. The responsibility of continuing a successful family business is a privilege but can also come with many challenges.

Our father dedicated over 40 years to growing Rushtons into the practice it is today and we hope to continue to uphold the work ethic, values and integrity which he taught us. Despite his retirement, he still gets invited to the Christmas party!”
