Fourth office opening for growing law firm

Yorkshire law firm, Holden Smith, has opened a fourth office in Ilkley.

The practice, co-founded in 2019 by James Smith, David Bancroft and Jamie Megson, has launched its latest office at 9 The Grove, in Ilkley town centre.

Kevin Britton, director and head of the Ilkley branch, said: “We are delighted to have established a presence in Ilkley. The new office is well-placed in the town centre and will help us deliver our ambitious growth plans by increasing the geography of the work we already deliver across our Leeds, Huddersfield and Halifax branches.

“Holden Smith has experienced rapid growth in the last 12 months and recruited more than 30 new staff, taking our total headcount of 60 people. Now is the right time for our fourth branch to open.”

Co-founder, David Bancroft, said: “We received over 6,000 new instructions during our last financial year with particular demand across our specialist residential and commercial property services, and we feel passionately that our approach of combining the latest legal technology with outstanding client interactions to deliver exceptional levels of service has been key to our success.”

He said the firm is also looking to create more new jobs as it continues to grow, adding: “We’re a young, dynamic and very experienced firm and we are passionate about growing the business with an ambitious and driven team of solicitors who want to help shape the future of Holden Smith and make their own mark.”
