North West law firm Harrison Drury has relocated its office in Lancaster to the heart of the city’s business district.

The firm has relocated from 21 Castle Hill to 76 Church Street. It is the firm’s second move in the city since it first opened an office in Dalton Square in 2014.

The new office will accommodate the firm’s growing Lancaster team which has nearly doubled in size over the past 12 months.

Headed up by senior associate solicitor Hannah Hughes, the 11-strong team covers corporate and commercial law, commercial property, divorce and family law, employment, and a range of private client legal services, such as wills, inheritance and trusts expertise.

Hannah said: “While the way we use the workplace is changing, it’s still vital for us to have a strong physical presence in our communities and a fantastic base for our people.

“Our move to Church Street accommodates our growing team and brings us even closer to the city’s people, businesses and professional community.”

Recent key appointments in the Lancaster office include senior associate and head of the firm’s employment team Kate Shawcross, wills and probate solicitor Holly Radcliffe, and associate solicitor Jonie Little who joined the firm’s commercial property team in January 2021.

Associate solicitor, Jack Stephenson, from the firm’s corporate team, is also based in Lancaster supporting clients on business sales and purchases and other corporate work.

Hannah added: “We’re proud of the way we’ve been able to expand our team to support a wide range of clients across a variety of sectors, whether they are businesses, families or private individuals needing advice and support.”
