A LAW firm has opened a new office in York - its 13th in total.

Ison Harrison launched its York office in Micklegate on Monday, continuing expansion seen in West Yorkshire last year, and returning to York for the first time since it had a Bishopthorpe Road office in the 1990s.

The office is headed up by experienced property solicitor Chris Brierley, who has worked in residential conveyancing for more than ten years but recently joined Ison Harrison. He is joined by commercial property solicitor Richard Scott, who specialises in commercial property work, development work and agricultural property.

Chris said: “York is a great city and we’re very pleased to open a new office here. The reputation the firm has established in West Yorkshire over the past 40 years will stand us in very good stead in York and the team is very excited about showcasing its property expertise to both the residential and commercial sector.”

Chris and Richard are also joined by Olivia Williams, a trainee solicitor in the new build property team. Olivia joined the new build team in August 2016 and assists clients throughout the whole conveyancing transaction process.

The new legal practice provides 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.

Jonathan Wearing, managing partner at Ison Harrison said the opening of the new office was a great show of success for the company.

He said: “This has been a great year for the firm. We’re commemorating Ison Harrison’s 40th anniversary this year and have now opened our second office of 2018.

“Following on from our new office launches last year and at the start of this year, this represents a very positive step for the firm.

“Ongoing growth underpins our objective of retaining a presence on the high street as this ensures we remain in touch with our clients and the communities we operate in.

“We’re very much looking forward to getting involved in the local community in York and to start offering the first class service for which we are renowned across the region.”
