Our history

The Norton in our name originated from Norton Smith & Co. This firm was established in Sydney in 1818 by James Norton.

The Gledhill in our name originated from Gledhill Burridge & Cathro, a firm established by Michael Gledhill in 1986. David Burridge and Bruce Cameron were founding partners of that firm.

In 1996 Gledhill Burridge & Cathro merged into Norton Smith & Co.

Norton Gledhill in its current form was established in 1999. Besides David Burridge and Bruce Cameron, Norton Gledhill’s founding partners included Hugh Scales. Since that time a number of new partners (now referred to as principals) have joined the firm and added to the firm’s depth of expertise.
