About us

The Firm is one of the oldest and largest commercial law firms in Trinidad and Tobago and traces its origins to the practice of Oliver Fitzwilliam who first started practicing in 1912 after a gift of $5000 was bestowed upon him by his great uncle, Jules Larry. Oliver Fitzwilliam was later joined by Stanley Stone in 1919 after the end of World War I and this two man operation began carrying on their practice as "Solicitors and Conveyancers" under the name "Oliver Fitzwilliam & Co". Their practice was one of the first firms in Trinidad and Tobago to formally register its business name in 1923 (its business name certificate is numbered forty four), pursuant to the passage into law of the then Registration of Business Ordinance in that same year.
