Law firm extends its footprint by establishing a third base

A long established law firm is set to establish a base in the village of Hathersage.

Graysons Solicitors – which started in Sheffield in 1925 and also has an office on Saltergate in Chesterfield – is set to take over the existing Favells’ private client practice located at Brunel House on Station Road.

As well as taking on existing clients the firm will offer its services to new clients right across the Hope Valley area.  Favells’ staff based in the Hathersage Office will transfer to Graysons.

Peter Clark, managing partner at Graysons, said: “We are really excited to have the opportunity to serve the people of Hathersage and the wider Hope Valley area.

“We already have strong connections through our existing offices in Sheffield and Chesterfield so this is a natural move for us.”

The move is set to allow Favells to concentrate on its criminal defence practice.

David Lawson, Favells’ director, said: “We have very much enjoyed serving the people of the area over the years and are glad to be leaving our private client practice in Graysons’  capable hands.”

Graysons Solicitors specialises in property, family law, lifetime planning, wills, estate and trusts, elderly client services, personal injury and clinical negligence.

Graysons is currently the main sponsor of Ashgate Hospicecare’s Forget-Me-Not appeal at Chatsworth House.

It also sponsors Sheffield’s “Art in the Gardens” – which is held in the Botanical Gardens every September – and the “Sheffield Young Artists” event which helps nurture the talents of hundreds of school children every year.

Clark added: “We are a family firm that likes to give something back to the community it serves. We’re really looking forward to getting involved in and becoming part of life  in the village.”
