In 1986 the firms of Wall, James & Davies and Bannister & King merged. The roots of the two Stourbridge solicitors stretch back nearly 200 years when gas lighting was first installed in the town and the Industrial Revolution was getting up steam. Bannister & King was originally founded in 1830 by William Blow Collis – whose only fees for that year were recorded as being £5 9s 2d for the drawing up of a lease! Meanwhile, back in 1865, when Gladstone became leader of the House of Commons, Thomas J.Wall set himself up as a solicitor at 19 Hagley Road. Some 25 years later he went into partnership with George Francis James. James’ son, Oswald Leo Wall, also later entered into partnership with Trevor Davies. In 2009 Wall, James & Davies merged with Chappell & Perry to form Wall James Chappell. Percy Chappell started from 14 Hagley Road, his house in 1906! Today the firm of Wall James Chappell still operates from its office at 15-23 Hagley Road with 8 partners and 40 people.
