Liverpool law firm Morecrofts Solicitors has doubled the size of its office space in Prescot town centre and created six jobs as part of its expansion.

The firm has completed a deal for an extra 650 sq ft of office space on the first floor of its existing premises on Warrington Road. It is investing £20,000 on refurbishing the additional space.

Morecrofts first opened its Prescot office in November 2018, becoming the firm’s sixth office in the Liverpool City Region in addition to Crosby, Woolton, Allerton, Wirral and Liverpool city centre.

This latest expansion follows a growth in client work across a range of departments, notably private client, matrimonial and conveyancing.

David Parr, finance partner at Morecrofts Solicitors, said: “These are really exciting times for Prescot, with the impending opening of the Shakespeare North Playhouse and a variety of new independent businesses coming to the fore in the town.

“Our team is embedded in the local community and we enjoy the relationships we have been able to develop with fellow local businesses and clients alike.

“We have also had tremendous support from a range of organisations including Knowsley Chamber, so it was a natural move for us to expand our presence here and continue to invest in Prescot.”
