About Us

Established in Ellesmere over 100 years ago by Mr. Gough-Thomas, the firm became known as Gough-Thomas & Scott in 1955 when John Scott became a partner. With offices now in Ellesmere and Oswestry GTS has grown to be one of the region's leading specialist firms of solicitors.

Whilst it is true that most firms of solicitors offer broadly the same range of services, not all offer the same standard of service. At GTS we believe in looking after our clients and providing a personal approach. We believe in working with efficiency, enthusiasm and professionalism and offering our clients a fair price for a good service.

All the partners have considerable experience of the local area, as well as having an extensive network of local clients and professional contacts. We have a team of dedicated and hard-working, professional staff at both offices which allows us to provide the excellent standards and speed of service we believe our clients require.

Our Philosophy

"It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it cannot be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run. If you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better"
