A law firm is starting the year by opening its 15th branch and first in the Bradford district as it looks to strengthen its foothold in thd region.

The move into Bingley by Ison Harrison, will see the office house a team of five legal experts led by branch manager Claire Loftus, an expert in property law.

In addition to property and family law, the office will be able to handle all legal enquires – personal and business – via its network of regional offices and the broad experience of its in-house lawyers.

Ison Harrison was founded in 1978 by Stephen Harrison in Leeds, merging a decade later with Garforth-based Ison Driver & Furness, to form Ison Harrison.

43 years later it now employs more than 200 staff across 15 offices.

Ison Harrison managing partner, Jonathan Wearing, said: “The start of 2021 marks the beginning of another exciting chapter in the Ison Harrison story as we announce the opening of our newest branch in Bingley.

“Opening a new office in the middle of a pandemic is brave but our business model of offering our full range of legal services through a network of offices dotted across Yorkshire has proved to be really resilient throughout.

“Bingley sees us making our debut in the Bradford district and I’m delighted our new branch will be taking its place on Bingley’s Main Street, helping to support the local economy.”
