Cleaver Fulton Rankin, a leading law firm in Northern Ireland, celebrates 130 years in business this year.

To mark this significant milestone and celebrate its history, ongoing growth and development, the firm held a team celebration event on Friday, 15 September at the National, Belfast. Cleaver Fulton Rankin would like to thank The Bullitt, The Clayton Hotel, The Merchant Hotel, The Spirit Circle, and Waterman House for providing special prizes for its team as they celebrated the firm’s 130th anniversary.

Founded in 1893, Cleaver Fulton Rankin has grown to become one of the leading commercial law firms in Northern Ireland. The firm’s continued focus upon its clients and its people remains the key to its success and is central to its continued growth.

Cleaver Fulton Rankin is also an innovative and responsible business. In the past two years, the firm was the first independent law firm in Northern Ireland to launch a Legal Technology Group and an ESG Hub. It has also made a commitment to reach net zero by 2030, having signed the Climate Action Pledge and more recently, the Greener Litigation Pledge. The firm remains dedicated to investing in the learning, development and wellbeing of its team, having launched a Digital Skills Programme and Diversity & Inclusion Strategy in 2023.
