Lewis Brownlee was founded in 1990 by Adrian Lewis FCA and Charles Brownlee BA Hons (Econ) FCA ATII. However, Lewis Brownlee has a long heritage as it was originally part of a partnership called Edmonds & Co. who opened the Chichester office shortly after World War II. During the 1960’s it became the Chichester office Thornton Baker, later to become Grant Thornton. In 1990 Adrian Lewis and Charles Brownlee, who were the resident Grant Thornton Partners, purchased the practice and Lewis Brownlee was born.
The firms aim then, as it is now, was to provide clients with the best expertise and advice, along with exceptional customer service.
Times have changed a lot over the years, but we have now become a fully technology friendly business, through the use of many cloud apps including Xero (for which we are a Gold Partner) and Quickbooks (for whom we are a ProAdviser).

Less than five years ago we were based in one office in Chichester. Since then we’ve moved into our beautifully renovated Barns and we’ve expanded to having offices in Midhurst, Whiteley and London.
