Sir Thomas Braddell
and Logan & Braddell (1859)


Our firm's origins can be traced to Logan & Braddell founded in 1859 by Sir Thomas Braddell, the first Attorney-General of Singapore and the father of the actual "Braddell Brothers".

Sir Thomas' elder son, Sir Thomas de Multon Lee Braddell practised with him in Logan & Braddell until Sir Thomas' retirement.

It was then, in 1883, that Sir Thomas de Multon Lee Braddell and his younger brother Robert Wallace Glen Lee Braddell founded the firm of Braddell Brothers.

Sir Roland St John Braddell, the eldest son of Sir Thomas de Multon Lee Braddell, would later also practise at Braddell Brothers.

Sir Roland became one of the most prominent lawyers in the Straits Settlements, Johore, and the Federated Malay States and was joint editor of One Hundred Years of Singapore, where the origins of his father's and uncle's firm, Braddell Brothers, were succinctly documented.
