New year, new premises and new staff for top tier law firm

Richard Lloyd

North Wales and Shropshire law firm GHP Legal will be starting 2019 with the opening of additional new office premises and several new additions to departmental teams.

The Legal 500 Top Tier firm, which with around one hundred staff is one of the largest independents in the region, announced the purchase of the former Co-operative bank premises in Oswestry town after merging with Milton Francis & Hughes in October 2018. With a head office in Wrexham and other offices in Chirk and Llangollen, the firm will continue to operate from its existing premises in Oswestry alongside the new offices.

A complete refurbishment of the former bank premises includes the installation of air conditioning and provision of private client meeting rooms and conference rooms. The new facilities reflect a continued substantial growth within GHP Legal and its willingness to cater for the needs of modern society.

In the firm’s latest round of appointments, solicitors Lowri Gwyn Jones and Ulia Choudhry joined the private client and residential property teams, along with legal executive, Sophie Bebbington. Sarah Tidswell also joined the property team as a qualified solicitor in December after becoming the latest in a long line of trainees to complete a training contract with the firm.

Richard Lloyd, Senior Partner at GHP Legal, said:

“GHP Legal has gone from strength to strength in recent years and is still undergoing strategic growth. A multi-disciplinary practice with four offices serving a client base stretching across more than 10 counties in England and Wales, we are one of the longest standing and largest independent law firms in the region. 2019 promises to be another exciting year for us as we look forward to moving into the new Oswestry premises at The Cross.”
