Pishon Gold was established in 2012 and is the brainchild of Principal Solicitor, Adjoa Djan-Krofa. Prior to branching out on her own, Adjoa spent over a decade gaining valuable experience in several South London legal firms.
She decided to start her own practice because she wanted to help bring peace of mind to families by using her expertise to help them solve their legal issues.
Since establishing Pishon Gold, Adjoa has assisted a growing army of delighted local families with:
- Will preparation
- Business and Commercial
- Trust deeds
- Power of Attorney
- Landlord and tenant matters
- And much more!
And if a client has a problem that is outside of Adjoa’s area of expertise then she can draw on her network of Sole Practitioner contacts to put them in contact with a Solicitor who specialises in what they need.
Adjoa is a member of the Law Society Private Client Section and the Lawyers Christian Fellowship. She is also an active participant at her local Church in South London as well as Trustee of two educational charities. She acts as Legal Counsel for PBMET, an educational charity providing grants and scholarships to needy but bright children in Obuasi, Ghana.
She is Chair of the South London branch of the Sole Practitioners’ Group, a network of likeminded Sole Practitioner Solicitors that was established in January 2017 and meets bi-monthly to discuss topical issues, share best practice and build relationships so they can extend the scope of what offer to their clients by being able to access different specialisms. Adjoa is also a long-standing member of a Beckenham based business networking group and has excellent contacts across the local business community.
So, she is an industrious lady. But, as the saying goes, if you want something done, ask a busy person. Here’s a little more about Adjoa:

Stephen qualified in 1985 and ran his own firm with a partner for over 30 years. After a short period out of the area, he decided to look for a new role and was attracted to the flexibility of working for Pishon Gold. As a consultant, Stephen often works remotely and can meet clients at a venue and time to suit them; which has proved to be beneficial to those who don’t have the time to spend in a Solicitor’s office. He joined the firm in May 2018 and specialises in commercial and property law.
In his spare time, Stephen is a busy sportsman and plays tennis, football, rugby and squash. His other great love is listening to music. From Vaughan Williams to Radiohead and much in between!
What is the most surprising thing about you? It might be better to ask someone else that question!!!
Favourite TV show feature a Solicitor or Lawyer? My decision to go into Law was hugely influenced by how I saw it portrayed on TV. Probably the most memorable was Rumpole of the Bailey which, to me, captured the essence of the legal system.

Phrase you use most often: probably “It’s not the end of the world”, which I hope is reassuring to clients! But I’m also a great believer in “I’d rather do no work and earn no money than lots of work and earn no money.” It may sound obvious but it’s easy to fall into the latter trap, particularly as a business owner.
