A LAW firm with offices in Huddersfield has added a new 10,000sq ft state-of-the-art office at Wakefield to its branch network.

Chadwick Lawrence, which has offices at Railway Street in Huddersfield, has taken space at Paragon Business Village.

The move reinforces its rankings as one of the top 25 law firms in Yorkshire and Humber with 14 partners and 220 staff.

Over the past few years, the firm has undergone a period of sustained growth and a substantial increase in staff levels. As a result, employees and partners from the firm’s Wakefield and Ossett offices have relocated to the new premises.

Managing partner Jeremy Garside said: “We are proud to have a modern, vibrant workplace for our staff which will undoubtedly benefit both our corporate and private clients.”

The purpose built flagship office is now the base for 70 staff and seven partners, including the firm’s expanding corporate and commercial services, employment and litigation and insolvency teams.

Chadwick Lawrence covers the whole of Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield with offices in Huddersfield, Dewsbury, Halifax, Morley and Wakefield. The law firm has been based at Railway Street since 1998.
