There was an ap­pear­ance from ‘The Grinch’ (Chris Far­ley) and a re­turn visit for the ‘Elf on the Shelf’ (Jay Hynd). It was sup­ported by Re­becca Fer­gu­son and Liz Mcclarnon, along with ac­tress Gil­lian Kear­ney and re­al­ity TV stars Danielle Lloyd and Dawn Ward.

Ati­cus Law have ex­panded again. The award win­ning multi-dis­ci­plinary law firm with Of­fices in Manch­ester, Lon­don and Wilm­slow, are de­lighted to an­nounce the open­ing of their new high street, client in­ter­fac­ing of­fice, based at 59 Wa­ter Lane, Wilm­slow. With plans to ex­tend their Of­fice space over two floors, the bou­tique law firm now of­fers an ar­ray of client fo­cussed le­gal ser­vices in­clud­ing Fam­ily Law, Civil Lit­i­ga­tion, Res­i­den­tial Con­veyanc­ing, Wills & Pro­bate, Com­mer­cial Prop­erty, Em­ploy­ment Law, Cos­metic In­juries, Per­sonal In­jury, Med­i­cal Neg­li­gence, Com­pany Law and Crime.

Part­ner, Louise Shawcross, says that ‘hav­ing had a pres­ence in Wilm­slow for over 3 years, grow­ing de­mand has prompted us to take larger of­fices based on the high street, to al­low a more client fo­cussed ap­proach to the le­gal ser­vices on of­fer’.

Rachel Ward, head of the Fam­ily Law depart­ment at Ati­cus Law Solic­i­tors, said “We are de­lighted to have moved Of­fices from a ser­viced build­ing to the new pre­mier high street lo­ca­tion, next door to key play­ers in Wilm­slow such as As­ton Mar­tin and Chilli Banana, we hope to be able to of­fer more clients in and around Cheshire, the tai­lored pro­fes­sional ser­vice you come to ex­pect from a lead­ing Manch­ester Law firm and all served from our con­ve­niently lo­cated of­fice in Wilm­slow.”

Ati­cus Law, have quadru­pled their staff in 4 years and are look­ing to grow fur­ther. Wilm­slow of­fers a thriv­ing busi­ness com­mu­nity and now with a high street of­fer­ing, Ati­cus Law Solic­i­tors in­tends to be­come an in­te­gral part of that com­mu­nity. Ati­cus Law, are client fo­cused and share the be­lief that pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing client care is the key to suc­cess. They es­tab­lished Ati­cus Law ini­tially as a com­mer­cial law firm, but de­mand from clients has in­spired them to ex­tend the of­fer­ing fur­ther.

Rachel said “I have seen an in­creas­ingly high de­mand for ad­vice in Fam­ily Law, since we started of­fer­ing our bou­tique and client fo­cussed fam­ily law depart­ment over 12 months ago and an in­creas­ing de­mand for con­veyanc­ing in an area where prop­erty prices have re­mained buoy­ant. With rec­om­men­da­tions from ex­ist­ing clients and other lo­cal solic­i­tors, we feel we have fit­ted well into Wilm­slow. It is a lovely place to work, and the lo­cal com­mu­nity has been warm and wel­com­ing”.

The firm of­fers a free con­sul­ta­tion in Fam­ily and Con­veyanc­ing mat­ters and all other ar­eas at a time that suits you. Per­haps, of the great­est im­por­tance to clients though is that they un­der­stand that things don’t just hap­pen in of­fice hours. Ati­cus Law are happy to have meet­ings or plan in phone calls in the evenings or at week­ends and their clients are as­sured that should they need le­gal ser­vices out of hours, they can call, and they’ll be there for them.’
