started in 1948 when John Rix opened an office in Uckfield. Shortly afterwards
he took over the Practice of Charles May & Son. In the early 50s he was joined
by Donald Kay. The firm's second office was opened in Heathfield in 1955. Since
the early 70s there has been considerable expansion in the Practice which now
has 12 Partners and over 80 staff working from the Uckfield and Heathfield
branches and the Seaford branch which opened in 1980 and is now equally well
The Heathfield office is in an attractive Edwardian building on the High Street
behind which is a modern annex. We have our own car park which is available to
clients visiting the office.
The Uckfield office is a new purpose built property linking with the High Street
and the Uckfield Office Village. It was constructed in 1997 on the garden area
of our previous office which was formerly the home of the founder of the firm.
Additional office space is taken up in the adjacent Rother House. Again, we have
our own car park which visiting clients are welcome to use.
The firm's office at Seaford is at Paignton House, Warwick Road in a very
prominent corner location. A public car park (with very reasonable rates) is
located only 50 yards from the office.
Rix & Kay's roots are those of a traditional family practice and we remain
committed to offering a comprehensive, personal service to our private clients,
which we achieve through our specialist Conveyancing, Wills and Probate and
Matrimonial and Family departments. However we have also established a very good
reputation as commercial lawyers and our Civil Litigation and Commercial
departments can offer a full range of legal services to businesses in East
Sussex and further afield.
The firm aims to become the best medium size Practice in East Sussex. It is
committed to providing a quality service to both private and business clients.
An ongoing programme of staff training at all levels and the use of information
technology to improve efficiency are just two of the ways by which the firm aims
to achieve its goals.
