Lawyer firm opens office
AGROWING law firm is celebrating a successful 2016 which saw it add a Southport office as part of its expansion.
JWK Solictors almost doubled its number of offices over the past year, including one which opened on Hoghton Street last month. The firm also operates in Lancaster, Morecambe, Glasgow and Kendal.
The new office is being managed by Dan Brown, who had previously worked in the town for nearly 10 years. He said: “I’m thrilled to have joined JWK Solicitors. When the chance arose to open and head up the new Southport office I was delighted, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for years.
“This is the first step in growing our conveyancing department to service new business to the firm. It’s my aim to provide outstanding customer service to our clients, and to estate agents and mortgage advisers. With an excellent team behind me and with my forward-thinking approach, coupled with innovative technology, I’m confident we can set our ambitions high and be really successful in Southport”.
JWK Director Charles Wilson said: “We’re finding a growing demand for a wide range of our services, but particular growth areas are Private Client and Residential Conveyancing. Southport will be home to teams specialising in both areas. Private Client work includes Wills, trusts, probate and estate administration, attorney and court of protection work.
“We recognise that while there’s significant competition from firms providing residential conveyancing, not all firms offer the service levels that clients are looking for. A typical JWK client is looking for a high level of service, to be kept fully informed as to progress and to have their sale or purchase proceed quickly and to a timetable of their choosing. Our clients are looking to forge a connection with an individual who is committed to their transaction.
“Dan’s approach to client service fits exactly with ours and we are delighted to welcome him to the team. We look forward to offering our services to the Southport community.”
