Legal & General was founded in June 1836 by Sergeant John Adams and five other lawyers in a café in Chancery Lane.  Originally called the New Law Life Assurance Society, the Society was limited to lawyers. The name was changed to Legal & General Life Assurance Society to reflect the fact that the policies were available to the general public, but ownership of the shares was limited to lawyers. The group expanded into the UK and soon began acquiring foreign life insurance companies by buying a retirement business from the Metropolitan Life Assurance Company of New York in the 1930s.  Legal & General Group plc, commonly known as Legal & General, is a British multinational financial services and asset management company headquartered in London, England.

The firm operates in the UK and US, with investment management firms in the Gulf, Europe and Asia.  Following the trend in the UK, Legal & General bought Whitegates Estate Agency from Provident Financial Group plc for £19 million in December 1989.
