A leading law firm is expanding its business in North Wales with the opening of a new office.
Lanyon Bowdler has had a presence in Conwy since March 2018, when leading commercial property solicitor and Welsh speaker Edward Nutting joined the firm.
To date, services have been provided through serviced office space but demand for services from the law firm with offices across Shropshire and Herefordshire has led to the formal opening of a fully staffed office.
The office opened on May 1 and the firm now offers a full range of legal services to both companies and private individuals from its Conwy base at Riverside Business Park.
Clients already include many leading local companies, such as some of the largest leisure and tourism destinations in the area, landed estates and many agricultural clients.
Brian Evans, Lanyon Bowdler managing partner, said:
“The proximity of our Oswestry office to the Welsh border has always given us a significant client base from Mid and North Wales.
“Last year we were able to make a strong lateral hire in Edward Nutting who was a natural leader for our North Wales practice and we made a commitment to having a permanent presence in the area.
“Lanyon Bowdler prides itself on providing the best quality legal services available as easily-accessible as possible to its clients in local markets.
“The demand for our services in North Wales is such that we are now formally opening an office there to provide clients with full access to the range of services available across the firm.
“Edward Nutting will be joined by long-standing residential property specialist David Foden who moves from our Oswestry office after almost 33 years there.
“David lives in Wales and will be assisting clients with all kinds of residential property transactions.
“We will also be welcoming newly-qualified solicitor and Welsh speaker Llinos Roberts, who will be working closely with Edward on commercial and agricultural matters.”
Other services to be provided from Conwy will include employment, corporate and dispute resolution for companies; and wills, trusts and probate, family, clinical negligence and personal injury for private clients.
“Our client base in North Wales has grown significantly and with our working knowledge of the Welsh market and the growing Welsh economy, we are excited about the year ahead.
“We see the formal opening of our Conwy office as an important commitment to supporting the region and the people who live there.”
