Horwich Farrelly, legal advisers to the insurance and commercial sectors, is continuing its expansion into commercial legal services with the opening of its seventh office.

This base will be in York and its team will cover a full range of advice, specialising in real estate, dispute resolution, restructuring and insolvency, debt recovery, employment and professional indemnity. Recruitment for the office is now under way.

The office will be headed by Jonathan Moore, a real estate specialist, who has more than 20 years’ experience in York’s legal services market. He was previously a partner at Knights.

Ronan McCann, CEO and managing partner, said: “The growth of our full-service offering and our continued expansion into the commercial sector is very exciting for our business.

“We focus on recruiting the right individuals who will fit with our culture and our vision and Jonathan is not only an extremely well-regarded expert in his field, but recognises the value of building successful teams and a successful business through the development and progression of our people for the benefit of our clients.

“The opening of our York office, led by Jonathan, is another significant milestone in our growth ambitions.”

Moore added: “I am so pleased to have joined a firm where I can help build something worth being part of.

“Horwich Farrelly is focused on client relationships and performance, with a leadership that has a genuine understanding of the fundamentals of lasting success and people development.

“There are exciting times ahead as we move into our new premises and build our full-service offering, and our team, in York – a significant area of opportunity and a great place to be based.”
