A law firm in Hereford is celebrating an expansion into newly-refurbished offices in the city centre.
Lanyon Bowdler is now based in Offa Street, having previously worked from two offices in Hereford following the merger with Beaumonts Solicitors.
Charles Almond, partner at the Hereford office, who was with Beaumonts for 30 years prior to the merger last year, said this was a landmark moment for the firm.
“We are delighted to be consolidating our presence in Hereford by moving all of our staff into the Offa Street offices, rather than being spread between Offa Street and Lanyon Bowdler’s previous base in Broad Street,” he said.
“We are fully committed to providing a comprehensive range of services to people and businesses in Herefordshire, and the firm has made a significant investment into the Offa Street offices to provide a thoroughly pleasant environment in which to do business.
“Our full range of legal services can now be accessed from the Offa Street offices, including employment, commercial property, planning, corporate, education, agricultural law, dispute resolution, PI and medical negligence claims amongst other specialisms.”
Will Morse, head of the firm’s market leading education team, said demand for the firm’s professional services had steadily increased over the past year.
“It’s a busy time for the firm at the moment,” he said. “We have just welcomed a new partner to the Hereford office, Laurence Lucas, who joins us from Willans in Cheltenham and has a wealth of experience across a wide range of commercial property matters.
“We are also working with a growing number of schools who are converting to academies and we have seen strong demand for support with development, renewable energy and planning services in particular.
“We are proud of our growing reputation as a firm of warm, friendly lawyers who have the expertise of a city firm but are accessible right here in Hereford.
“David Brammer, who heads up our planning team, has just been named as one of the top planning lawyers in the country by the independent national ‘Planning’ magazine, which is a real accolade.
“We have expanded the planning department in recent months and are keen to continue our work with a wide range of organisations and individuals across Herefordshire and the Marches.”
