Three Huddersfield entrepreneurs invest £500k to launch new law firm
Three young entrepreneurs in Huddersfield have invested six-figures in the launch of a new tech-focused law firm.
James Smith, Dave Bancroft and Jamie Megson ploughed £500k into getting their new venture, Holden Smith Law, off the ground.
Based in Denby Dale near Kirklees, the business will aim to use technology to create what its founders consider to be a “much-needed shift” towards prioritising client experience in the legal sector.
Holden Smith Law will initially centre its offering on residential property services throughout West Yorkshire before expanding into other disciplines.
It has already recruited three new members of staff, with plans to create five more jobs by the end of 2019.
James said: “Our combined 35 years’ experience has demonstrated clearly that there is a much-needed requirement to ensure customer service is the number one priority in the legal sector.
“Our investment embodies this, by providing clients with instant communication on their matter using apps and online portals, combined with efficient face-to-face communication which is still vital in the process.”
Dave commented: “Previously, a lack of technology has held us back in our roles. In our sector, accuracy and quality of work should be a given, but communicating effectively with the client about what’s happening during the process is where the new focus needs to be and is what will make us stand out.”
Jamie said of the launch: “We are delighted to bring Holden Smith to the market following months of planning and hard work.
“We believe our experience, combined with the forward-thinking, technology-savvy approach we have applied to business, will offer something different that puts us at the forefront of client experience.”
