Long legal career draws to an end

There are very few people who can boast of a career spanning nearly 50 years, let alone one with the same firm.  But a chapter of Maidstone’s legal history is drawing to a close with the move into semi retirement after forty seven years at Gullands of Stephen Tomlinson, partner and head of the residential property team.

Stephen’s career began with Gullands in 1963 and he rose swiftly through the ranks to become head of the residential property team, handling the sale and purchase of many thousands of properties in the county.

Stephen comments: “Despite certainly not feeling my age, I decided that I ought to consider slowing down and I will be working closely with the team to ensure a smooth handover for clients.  Work has been a very enjoyable part of my life and I now look forward to dedicating more time to my charitable work as a board member for the Abbeyfield Kent Society, which runs a number of care homes in the county and spending more time with my family.”

Blair Gulland, managing partner at Gullands comments: “We thank Stephen for his dedication and commitment to Gullands over such a long career and the team will miss him enormously.”
