Celebrating 125 years of Boult Wade Tennant!

January 2019

This year, 2019, we are delighted to be celebrating the 125th anniversary of Boult Wade Tennant.

Founded in 1894 by Alfred Julius Boult and joined soon after by Harold Wade and William John Tennant, the firm has grown considerably in size and reputation during its 125 year existence. Today our five practice groups span across six cities: London, Madrid, Berlin, Cambridge, Reading, and Oxford; have 36 partners and over 200 staff – each of whom play a crucial role in providing the highest quality of service and expertise that our clients and partners have come to know us for.

Over the years we have enabled our clients to achieve their commercial ambitions by offering straightforward and practical solutions and strategies to protect their inventions, designs, and brands through patent, trade marks, and registered designs. As we continue to grow and develop over the next 125 years and beyond, our commitment to excellence will remain.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been part of the Boult Wade Tennant journey so far, and very much look forward to celebrating with you all. Watch this space for further news and updates.
