Northallerton law firm expand with practice acquisition

Northallerton law-firm, Coles Solicitors, has acquired Derek M Jordan’s Settle practice.

Coles has offices in York and Thirsk, and this move will expand the firm across the Pennines.

Managing director and principal solicitor Peter Gibson, said: “We’re delighted with this expansion.

“It’s at the opposite end of the Yorkshire Dales to our existing offices, so we can now cover the east and west of the patch.

“We’ll be retaining the service of the practice’s lawyers and support staff, and augmenting the expertise of the whole group – particularly in the area of agricultural conveyancing and probate.

“We will continue to serve the needs of Bentham clients too, with home visits as necessary, where Derek Jordan had an office for many years until May 2011.”

Agricultural property expert Simon Best joins the Settle team as part of the deal, joining Mr Jordan and fellow solicitor Lilias Glen.

Mr Jordan is planning to retire following the acquisition, and said: “I am delighted that Coles have acquired my practice as I know they will offer an exceptional service to the people of north Craven – I wish them every success with their new venture. I am also afforded to the opportunity to assist with the transition, by being a consultant to the new firm in the coming months.”
