Hains & Lewis was established in May 1996 following the merger of the practices of Victoria Hains and Daniel Lewis.

Since then the firm has developed and grown and in 2006 merged with another local firm Jones & Jones. In 2008 the firm incorporated as Hains & Lewis Ltd when Christopher Taylor and Sharon Knox joined Vicki and Dan as directors. Vicki has recently retired and now works as a a consultant for the firm.
