We are delighted to announce the opening of our 13th regional office of Ison Harrison and a promising move into North Yorkshire. Our new branch will be based in York city centre with the opening taking place on 29th October 2018.

The last two years have seen a rapid expansion of the Ison Harrison network, with offices opening in Pudsey and Huddersfield in 2017 and an Otley branch opening earlier in 2018. This growth is all in line with our principle of extending our specialist legal knowledge and making it accessible to the community we serve. Keeping in touch with our community is vital in terms of understanding local issues and how different groups of people interact. This is critical to how we keep our advice relevant and topical, and hence our regional branches are the lifeblood of what we do.

Ison Harrison serving the community

Our York branch will be based on Micklegate, in the heart of York’s thriving city centre and within a stone’s throw of tourist landmarks such as the National Railway Museum, the Jorvik Centre, the York Dungeon, York Minster and the famous Shambles District. On the banks of the beautiful River Ouse and within two minutes’ walk of York Railway Station, our new office is in the heart of the action and most importantly, is accessible. We want to be prominent and we want people to know they can speak to us at any time about their legal issues. This is the same throughout all our other branches, and it is why we know the people of York will benefit from the advice of one of the most respected solicitors in Yorkshire. For local residents who have lived in York for some time, some may remember that Ison Harrison had an office on Bishopthorpe Road during the nineties. We are very much looking forward to returning to North Yorkshire with our new branch.

Meet our York team

Running our York branch is a team specifically recruited for the challenge. Headed up by Chris Brierley, an experienced property solicitor with over 10 years’ experience in all aspects of residential conveyancing, the team will be specialising in property advice. The other two members of Chris’s team are Richard Scott, who specialises in all aspects of commercial property, and Olivia Williams, a trainee solicitor in our new build property team since 2016. In addition to their individual knowledge, the York office has unrivalled general knowledge on the conveyancing process and, like all our branches, they will also offer dedicated advice on staple legal issues such as family law and wills and probate, for both private and business clients.

New branch manager Chris Brierley commented on the impending opening:

York is a great city and we’re very pleased to open our new office here. The reputation the firm has established in West Yorkshire over the past 40 years will stand us in very good stead in York, and the team is very excited about showcasing its property expertise to both the residential and commercial sector.

Local solicitors in Yorkshire

In addition, Jonathan Wearing, Managing Partner at Ison Harrison said:

This has been a great year for the firm. We’re commemorating Ison Harrison’s 40th anniversary this year and have now opened our second office of 2018 including our first ever outside of West Yorkshire. Ongoing growth underpins our objective of retaining a presence on the high street, as this ensures we remain in touch with our clients and the communities we operate in. We’re very much looking forward to getting involved in the local community in York and to start offering the first class service for which we are renowned across the region.

York is a thriving and hugely significant part of the Yorkshire area and it feels completely natural for Ison Harrison to be building a presence there. We are hugely excited about our latest opening and we can’t wait to share our knowledge, build new relationships and continue our work across the Yorkshire region.
