Three veteran partners who collectively spent 90 years at historic South East law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore have now retired.
Jeremy Passmore, Simon Brown and Patricia Fearnley have served the firm for 37 years, 28 years and 25 years, respectively, and have "significantly contributed" to the success of both the private client and clinical negligence practices.
Thomson Snell & Passmore said it has been planning for these retirements for some time and both practice areas have had established successor partners in place.
James Partridge, senior partner at Thomson Snell & Passmore, said: "Having had the pleasure of working alongside Jeremy, Simon and Patricia for over 25 years, I wish them all the best for the future. Their hard work and legacies will be honoured by their capable and dedicated teams who will continue to provide clients with the same high standards of advice and service.
"Although there is always sadness in bidding farewell to long-serving colleagues and friends, we are proud to say that Jeremy, Simon and Patricia will always be a part of our 450-year history as the oldest law firm in the world.
"In line with our growth strategy, we are confident we will continue to serve generations of our clients by retaining existing talent, whilst expanding the scope of our practice with new additions in future years."
