Alan Roy Brown LL.B.


AR Brown & Co was established by its founder Alan Brown in January 1986. Alan’s career in the law commenced in Local Government, firstly with Brighton Borough Council moving to Worthing Borough Council in 1973 where he was appointed as Solicitor to the Council until he opened his own practice in Chapel Road in 1986. At that time, in his private capacity, Alan gave advice to and supported a number of local charities, in particular, the Durrington Community Association, as Secretary to the High Salvington Mill Trust and solicitor to the Worthing Dome and Regeneration Trust Limited.

Over the years, Alan has gained experience in most areas of the law but, in recent years, has come to specialise in the following fields:



  • Business sales and acquisitions and other commercial matters
  • Grant of business leases
  • Residential Conveyancing: sales and purchase
  • Equity release
  • Mortgages through various lenders



Outside work, Alan has a great interest in Worthing history. In pursing this, he has supported the restoration of the Grade II* listed Dome Cinema for 20 years. Together with his fellow Trustees on the Worthing Dome Cinema Trust, he helped secure a lottery grant of over £1.5m to restore the building.


Meanwhile, his love of ‘Worthing Past’ was illustrated through his commissioning of a multitude of models of old Worthing and Sussex landmarks. These were made by the renowned Worthing model maker the late Ted Bayley, and are displayed in AR Brown & Co’s windows. This has led to the firm gaining the popular nickname “the Model Solicitors”.


Also, as a great supporter of local art, Alan has more recently founded a considerable art gallery space on the ground floor of his firm. Here, the work of budding artists can be displayed for public viewing at certain times. See the ‘Rivoli Gallery’ section of this website for more information.
