Law firm kicks off 2023 with office launch and new lawyers

Yorkshire law firm, Truth Legal, has started 2023 with the opening of a new office in Hull and two lawyer appointments.

The firm’s new office at K2 Tower, Bond Street is Truth Legal’s third regional office since the business launched a decade ago in Harrogate in 2012.

A Leeds office was opened in 2021. The business now employs a total of 27 members of staff across all three locations.

In addition to starting the year with a new office, new team members have also joined the expanding firm.

The Hull office will be headed by specialist immigration lawyer, Frances Ledbury. She is joined by experienced paralegal, Olivia Pickering. The appointments significantly bolster the firm’s immigration law service.

The prominent new Hull location features offices and private meeting room space.

Georgina Parkin, Truth Legal’s managing director and co-owner, said: “To kick off 2023 with the opening of a new branch gives us the best possible start to the New Year.

“We’ve experienced a rapid period of expansion, particularly over the past three years, opening successful immigration law, family law and business services departments in that time.

“A real upturn in demand for our services prompted the decision to open in Hull, offering the East Riding and Lincolnshire greater access to a dedicated, specialist legal team with a proven track record.

“Hull is the perfect place for our third location. City of culture status left a positive legacy with booming tech and hospitality industries, both key sectors we focus on for our business clients. The city also boasts a highly skilled legal sector and a respected university which bodes well for future recruitment.”

The Hull office will service both private and wider business community client needs, helping people access a vareity of legal expertise including all types of immigration law, personal injury, clinical negligence, employment law, family law, general litigation and professional negligence.

It will also provide the East Riding with access to an extended range of specialist services provided by experts located at the Leeds and Harrogate head office.

Parkin added: “Building on our existing areas of specialism is also high on the agenda, which will lead to further job creation and further new office openings. 2023 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year.”
