A leading Yorkshire law firm has opened a new office in Barnsley bringing its total number of premises in the region to fourteen.
The new office, located on Regent Street in the town, marks a continued period of expansion for the firm following the opening of offices in York and in Otley near Leeds last year.
As the latest office in Ison Harrison’s existing network of branches across the region, this creates a dedicated presence in Barnsley, serving the South Yorkshire region. Some local residents may be familiar with the Ison Harrison name, as the firm previously had branches in Cudworth and Goldthorpe in the 1980s.
The new Barnsley branch will be headed up by clinical negligence solicitor, Anne Robertson, who was formerly based at the firm’s head office in Leeds city centre.
Anne, who lives in Barnsley is an active member of the local community and well placed to provide an expert service to private clients. Anne covers all aspects of clinical negligence, including those relating to cauda equina syndrome, birth injuries, cancer diagnosis delays and cases resulting in fatalities. Her work spans a varied caseload, including matters concerning nursing, surgical, GP and physician error.
Previously a qualified nurse, Anne originally joined Ison Harrison in March 2018.
On the launch of the new office, Anne commented: “Naturally I’m delighted that Barnsley has been selected as the latest addition to Ison Harrison’s growing number of regional offices as I know the area so well and understand its requirements from a business perspective. Living and now working in Barnsley presents a very exciting opportunity and I am pleased to help Ison Harrison continue its network expansion throughout Yorkshire.
“In addition to a vibrant business community, Barnsley also has a lively local community scene. Through my established connections, we intend to fully engage with this as a proactive team.”
Commented Jonathan Wearing, managing partner: “Our expansion throughout the region continues with this latest office launch into South Yorkshire, helping us to further boost the firm’s regional footprint.
“Our continued growth is central to our objective of maintaining a visible high street presence as this helps us to strengthen relationships with our clients and the communities we operate in. We’re eager to get involved in local community activities in Barnsley and to begin providing the expert legal services for which we are well known across the region.”
The new legal practice will provide a full range of legal services for both business and private clients ranging from new build and conveyancing to family law and wills and probate matters.
Ison Harrison is officially the most accredited law firm in Yorkshire* and the firm has a team of over 210 staff across its network of offices.
