King Prior & Co Solicitors

2005 - 2007

King Prior & Co initiated a new trainee solicitor scheme, originally based from the Ashford premises.

The original website www.kingprior.co.uk was launched in 2005.


The Ashford (Kent) branch office opened in 2003. The Ashford location was selected for our expansion because of its proximity and transport links with Europe.

This office specialised in handling our European client base.


Partner Simon King left the practice in 1988, staying on as a consultant for a further five years. Ron Prior remained sole principal of the practice until 2007.


The practice opened in north Kent in November 1982. Initially a partnership operating from premises in Gravesend High Street, the firm moved to the purpose built premises at 1 Lord Street, that remain our Head Office.
