The Long Partnership was born on 1 May 2001. We had been in a previous practice and decided to strike out on our own. We agonised and consulted the creative people around us and they came up with all manner of clever names. But, in the end we came up with our own name, The Long Partnership. Helen and I had lived and worked together for nearly a decade. All these years later we are still living and working together. The name seems to fit and after such a long time working side by side, you must admit that this “Long” partnership really works.
The business is now much more than just the two of us, but we remain very much at the centre, but there are now others who help to guide and shape who we as a firm have become and who we will become in the future.
The Long Partnership is evolving and is, and will always be, much more than just the sum of the people within it.
