Hegarty celebrates 50 years with 50 acts of community kindness – and a fresh new look!

Local solicitor firm, Hegarty (, a long-term fixture within Peterborough’s legal and business landscape, is embarking on an exciting new chapter this year as it celebrates five decades of being a trusted legal companion to people in and around the city.

As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, the firm is honouring the values and ‘local firm’ ethos that has defined its identity for half a century, by embarking on an inspiring journey of community kindness with 50 initiatives planned over the next 12 months.

The range of activities, from tree planting to bake sales, and even a slightly more strenuous 3 Yorkshire Peaks Challenge adventure, aims to help local residents, causes, communities and charities in a variety of ways. Find out more about the 50 initiatives here.

Hegarty will also be upping its usual single annual charity partner from one to four this year, with a charity close to each of its office locations – Sports Connections Foundation in Peterborough, MindSpace in Stamford, Pepper’s A Safe Place in Oakham and Dementia Support in Market Deeping – all benefiting from a fundraising boost in 2024.

In addition to the 50 community initiatives and charity partnerships, Hegarty has unveiled a modern new look to commemorate its 50th year milestone.

The rebrand extends to a fresh new logo, modernised website and updated building signage, preserving the familiarity that clients have come to associate with the firm whilst acknowledging its evolution over the years.

Kally Singh, senior partner at the firm, shared his enthusiasm for the 50th anniversary celebrations, “This is a momentous occasion for Hegarty, but as we celebrate, we are mindful of the trust our community has placed in us over the past 5 decades.”

 “Our 50 community initiatives are a way to give back, express gratitude, and foster connections, and we can’t wait to get started!”

 “The rebranding too, helps solidify our identity as a ‘local law firm’ which is incredibly important to us. We’re ready to take on the next 50 years and continue to be a trusted legal partner for the people of Peterborough and its surrounding communities.”

Hegarty was established in 1974 and is one of the largest law firms in the region. The firm offers a wide range of legal expertise from its offices in Market Deeping, Stamford, Oakham and Peterborough.
