Our ethos underpins everything we do and defines the distinctive nature of the service we provide at Oldfield Smith & Co.  You can read more about this by clicking on the link to the right, where you will also find biographies for our key members of staff.

The company is jointly owned by Richard Oldfield and Bernard Smith, who between them have over 50 years of experience in industry. Both have successfully run their own businesses in the past, so have an intimate knowledge of the challenges faced by companies trying to grow and develop.

Richard and Bernard are both passionate about providing the very best advice in simple, easy to understand terms. Since Oldfield Smith & Co was formed in 2013, the practice has developed a solid and enviable reputation for providing high quality advice and support across a wide variety of commercial property transactions and has represented a number of national and international businesses.  However, we pride ourselves on being able to bring those same services within the reach of the small business, sole trader, charities and new start organisations.
