The York branch was one of the newest offices to open in Ison Harrison’s existing network of 19 branches across Leeds and West Yorkshire.

The relocated office and team will be focused on meeting the needs of private and wider business community clients, 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

Commenting on the expansion Chris Brierley said: “Through relocation we are increasing our presence in York and building for the future, with the intention of expanding the team further. We are providing a service designed to meet the needs of the surrounding community.

Jonathan Wearing, managing partner at Ison Harrison, said: “This has been a great first year for the York office so much so that it has been necessary to move to bigger and better premises.

“Continued growth underpins our firm-wide objective of retaining a visible presence on the high street as this means we keep in touch with our clients and the communities we operate in. Having established a solid presence in York over the past 12 months, we’re very much looking forward to building on this and interacting more with the local community whilst continuing to provide the quality, professional service for which we are renowned across the region.”

On Thursday 9th January Ison Harrison is holding a new office launch party for existing and potential business clients between 4.30pm-6.30pm. To attend please contact
