  • I had the privilege of working at Wright and Webb in Bloomsbury Square when I was in London in 1963-1966. Oscar Beuselinck was the great media lawyer at this time (nobody has ever replaced him as such) and there was never a dull moment in this company. I enjoyed working there so much. My daughter was in London just before I returned in 1994 and and she also had the privilege of getting to know him too. Unfortunately, due to his busy schedule, I never met up with him again and only spoke to him on the phone. I also have been very lucky to meet up with one of his co-workers in the USA after a period of 45 years. I was so saddened to hear of his passing.

  • I worked at Wright and Webb firstly as an outdoor clerk. Mr Beuselinck terrified me [and others] when he lost his temper but was a very fair man and I liked him as a boss. I had to leave due to ill health but have never forgotten him and never will. OAB was one of a kind.

  • I had the privilage of working for Wright & Webb Syrett & Sons in Soho Square back in 1978 where I was a Managing Clerk. Oscar was one of a man. I enjoyed working with him and learnt a lot. I left in 1980 & his last words to me was you can come back whenever you want to work with me!!
    I also was involved in the group Queen's Libel actions, Roger Moore's divorce and many more. I wish I could be back there to work with this wonderful firm!!!! I miss the good days. Every Friday afternoon we had meetings with Oscar and the other Solicitors where we discussed our cases and shared our views (whilst drinking whisky)!!!!!

  • I worked at Wright Webb Syrett in the early 1980s and loved it. Mr. Beuselink was a lovely gentleman and I remember when the storms hit London not many people made it into work but those that did he took out for a meal at lunchtime. He and Mr. Peter Ash (think that was the other senior partner) were very well respected solicitors.
