Fifth office opening for law firm as it advances into fresh territory

Yorkshire law firm, Holden Smith, has opened a new office in Queensbury near Bradford.

The office is the firm’s fifth location to open since it was launched in 2019 by co-founders James Smith and David Bancroft.

The latest office will help the firm grow its reach in and around the city of Bradford and will be led by head of new build property, Jess McKenzie.

David Bancroft, co-founder and director, said: “We are happy to be growing our reach into Bradford and the surrounding areas with the opening of our fifth office, in Queensbury.

“We are well connected in this area, and we see many opportunities for continued growth. Opening an office here was always on our radar, and now is the right time to do it.”

McKenzie added: “Queensbury has a very personal connection for me and David as we both attended Queensbury School, so it’s exciting to be back in the area to oversee the development of the team at our latest office.

“We are looking forward to working closely with other local businesses and getting involved with the local community, which is something that is important to us as a firm.”

Holden Smith marked its fifth anniversary in February, revealing it had recorded a turnover of £7m for its financial year ending October 2023.

The firm now employs over 100 staff across its offices in Huddersfield, Elland, Leeds Crossgates, Horsforth, and Queensbury.
