Thomas Lessels Dallas OBE, an enterprising Scotsman, established the TL Dallas business in Bradford in 1919, following experience with Christian Salvesen and Scottish Life Assurance Company.
At this time there were more than 300 textile mills operating in Bradford, so unsurprisingly many of our early clients were from the wool textile trade. From this base the business grew steadily by acquiring and retaining top quality commercial clients from all sectors of industry and commerce.
The Group has evolved over the years to become a professional partnership of share holding Directors. This structure works well for a modern insurance broking business relying heavily on the dedication and enterprise of individual insurance professionals, acting as a team to provide a full range of expert insurance advice.
While the company has expanded and developed considerably since its early days, this fourth generation family business remains true to its roots; continually striving to improve performance in all aspects of business, from servicing clients to rewarding all who invest in us.
