John Chesworth and David Jefferies

North West law firm Harrison Drury has opened an office in Lytham.

It has also hired former Linder Myers solicitor, David Jefferies, as a partner to support the launch of the office which has opened in premises at Dicconson Terrace.

David, a private client specialist with more than 40 years of legal experience, will be assisted by the firm’s existing teams, allowing the new office to offer a full range of legal advice to clients locally.

John Chesworth, executive chairman at Harrison Drury, said: “With a growing client base in the area, we have been exploring a Fylde office for a while and when the opportunity arose to have a solicitor as experienced as David join us, we knew the time was right.

“David has worked in the profession locally for over four decades which is why he has become so well known and trusted by his clients. We’re delighted to have him with us, helping more people to get the specialist estate planning advice they need.”

He added: “Our other team members will support the development of the office and we will grow the Lytham team to offer a full range of legal services to businesses and individuals.”

David’s areas of specialism include wills, trusts, the administration of estates, Court of Protection work and lasting powers of attorney.

For many years he was a partner in Senior Calveley & Hardy of Lytham.

He said: “I’m proud to be joining the great team at Harrison Drury and continuing my work to support the people of Fylde and the surrounding areas.”

Harrison Drury’s new Lytham office is situated on the first floor of the Lytham Assembly Rooms in Dicconson Terrace.
