Wakefield law firm aims for national expansion with new headquarters
A Yorkshire legal firm has announced that it is creating new jobs and doubling its headquarters as it aims to expand nationally.
Newport Land and Law, based in Wakefield, is moving to new headquarters at the Nostell Priory, doubling the amount of space it had in its previous offices.
The company has also created four jobs, following a property market “boom” in 2020.
As it aims to expand across the country, the firm is considering new offices in Oxford and South Wales, with additional offices planned across the UK.
Anna Newport, founder and director of Newport Land and Law, commented: “Over the years we have established a national reputation for our expertise in everything from trusts and wills to estates and property law.
“We’ve built a client base with national reach and now is the time to accelerate our ambitions with new offices.
“The development of our consultancy offer will give talented lawyers the flexibility they want with the support of an established operation that shares their values and a focus on client service.
“Despite all the challenges, 2020 provided a strong launchpad for growth.
“Our caseload in the final quarter of the year was 400 per cent up on the year before, and we’ve seen the expansion of both our probate services and demand for dispute resolution.”
