An experienced commercial property lawyer has joined the Huddersfield office of Ison Harrison, bolstering the team and bringing specialist commercial property expertise to the region.
Rachel Warsop, a partner with the Leeds-headquartered law firm has joined the Huddersfield office from Castleford, strengthening the team to eight. She has 20 years’ experience of commercial and residential property matters.
Rachel originally joined the Castleford branch of Maurice Smiths solicitors, (which merged with Ison Harrison in 2015) as an assistant solicitor in 1999 and became a partner in 2006. Rachel’s professional focus has primarily been commercial and residential property but she is also expert in the field of wills and probate.
Ison Harrison opened the Huddersfield office in January of this year. The office is the newest in Ison Harrison’s existing network of twelve branches across Leeds and West Yorkshire.
Rachel brings a wealth of commercial property experience to the team and will work closely with Ison Harrison’s Head of residential conveyancing and remortgage, James Smith, who also heads up the Huddersfield office on John William Street.
Rachel commented: “I’m looking forward to working with a new team and in a completely new area. There is a real demand for commercial property in Huddersfield and specialising in this for clients based in Huddersfield and the surrounding areas represents an exciting new opportunity for me personally. Client contact is a key priority for me and to be able to deliver such a focussed service for existing and new clients is a major factor for me.”
James Smith, partner and branch manager at the Huddersfield office, added: “I am delighted that Rachel has joined the team here in Huddersfield, adding an extra dimension to our already very comprehensive service. We launched this new office off the back off a very real local need and the first six months have been hugely successful. The whole team really does relish being a part of the local community in Huddersfield and providing the same first class service for which we are renowned across West Yorkshire and beyond.
“Having a strong, local presence on the high street is important to us as this helps to maintain a high degree of visibility and contact with clients and the communities we operate in, which we know from experience is valued a great deal. Rachel is very much this kind of operator and her joining our office is not only a great asset to the Huddersfield team but of enormous benefit to clients across the region.”
Rachel lives on the outskirts of Huddersfield with her husband Simon and two daughters and is a black belt in karate. She is also a member of Denby Dale Athletics Club and participates in many local running events including the Huddersfield 10k and the West Yorkshire Cross Country League.
The Huddersfield office of Ison Harrison provides a full range of legal services for both business and private clients ranging from residential conveyancing, family and probate matters to personal injury and debt recovery.
