York law firm kicks off 2020 with new premises launch and new appointment

Yorkshire law firm Ison Harrison has started 2020 in style with the official launch of its new office in York and the appointment of a new family law specialist.

After originally opening in York in late 2018, a year of success has led to the need for an updated premises with a shop front, which the team moved into in late December.

The firm’s new office at 23 Micklegate was officially launched on Thursday 9 January during a ribbon cutting ceremony performed by Lord Mayor of York, Councillor Janet Looker.  The Sheriff of York, Jo Trythall, and York Town Crier, Ben Fry were also in official attendance. 

The opening was attended by 70 guests including Ison Harrison clients and representatives from the business community as well as partners from the firm. 

Following an official opening of the branch, guests were invited to the local Tank & Paddle pub where managing partner, Jonathan Wearing, gave a speech.

In addition to starting 2020 with a new office, a new team member has also joined the York branch’s existing team, bolstering the firm’s family law service. Solicitor Shelley Britton brings over seven years of experience dealing with all aspects of family law such as Children Act matters, domestic abuse and divorce. Shelley joins from Switalskis solicitors.

The York branch is one of the newest offices to open in Ison Harrison’s existing network of 14 branches across Leeds, West and South Yorkshire. The prominent new Micklegate location features ground floor access combined with more office and private meeting room space.

Local resident and experienced property solicitor, Chris Brierley, heads up the York branch. He has over 10 years’ experience in all aspects of conveyancing and his expertise spans several areas of law including residential property. 

Commenting on the official launch of the new office, Chris said: “2019 was a great first full year in business for us and this move has meant we are getting off to the best possible start for the New Year and new decade. Our relocation underpins Ison Harrison’s growing presence in York and provides a great foundation for the future as we look to build relationships with clients and partner with other leading local businesses to provide the best legal advice possible. Building on our existing areas of specialism is also high on the agenda which will lead to further job creation, as we’ve already seen with the appointment of outstanding family Solicitor, Shelley Britton. 2020 is shaping up to be a very exciting year.” 

The York office of Ison Harrison will focus on servicing both private and wider business community client needs, helping them to access a wide range of legal expertise including all types of conveyancing, family law and wills and probate. They will also provide the York Community with access to a wide range of specialist services provided by Ison Harrison experts located at their Leeds head office, including a full commercial law service.

Jonathan Wearing, managing partner at Ison Harrison, said: “Continued growth led to a great first year of operation for the York branch, facilitating the need for recruitment and office expansion. As evidenced by the tremendous turnout for our official office launch event, this is an exciting start to the year for the firm in a key area for us and we are relishing the opportunity of building on the great work achieved in the past 12 months to achieve even greater success. This approach reflects our firm-wide objective of retaining a visible presence on the high street and staying in touch with our clients and the communities we operate in.”
