In 2008, he opened Adam Partridge Auctioneers in Macclesfield, which has grown to become the leading independent auction house in the North West. In 2011, they opened a second sale room in the heart of Liverpool’s vibrant Baltic Triangle quarter.

They cater to a wide range of clients including museums and galleries as well as private collectors.
Some notable sales include £89,000 for an 18th-century violin by Neapolitan maker Giuseppe Gagliano, a world record for the maker; £86,000 for a large pair of c.1876 exhibition quality Elkington & Co cloisonné trumpet vases; and, in 2015, £11,000 for a piece of ambergris.
