Who we are

Addlestone Keane was established in 1992 as a niche commercial legal practice based in the heart of Leeds.

Our philosophy is to provide the highest quality personal and partner led service for all our clients, whether they are individuals or businesses.

Whilst we have always focused our efforts on satisfying the needs of our existing clients, we continue to grow based on their success and their recommendation.

As a consequence of this policy, we find that many of our clients come to regard Addlestone Keane as an integral part of their own business.

We strive to achieve the highest standards and we are confident that our clients, both existing and new, will continue to benefit from our personal approach and the high quality service we offer.

“Having previously used law firms large and small for all aspects of legal work, Addlestone Keane have always provided the best legal advice and most cost effective services across all aspects of our activities. In any dispute, one side’s lawyers are ‘wrong’ – thankfully we have always been on the ‘right’ side with Brian.”
