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, Andrew Green and Peter Nelson. 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.
