Yorkshire law firm Ison Harrison has officially launch its new office in York and appointed a new family law specialist.

After originally opening in York in late 2018, a year of success has led to the need for an updated premises with a shop front, which the team moved into late last year.

The firm’s new office at 23 Micklegate was officially launched last week during a ribbon cutting ceremony performed by Lord Mayor of York, Councillor Janet Looker.  The Sheriff of York, Jo Trythall and York Town Crier, Ben Fry were also in official attendance.

In addition to starting 2020 with a new office, a new team member has also joined the York branch’s existing team, bolstering the firm’s family law service.

Solicitor Shelley Britton joins from Switalskis solicitors and brings over 7 years of experience dealing with all aspects of family law such as Children Act matters, domestic abuse and divorce.

The York branch is one of the newest offices to open in Ison Harrison’s existing network of 14 branches across Leeds, West and South Yorkshire. The prominent new Micklegate location features ground floor access combined with more office and private meeting room space.

“2019 was a great first full year in business for us and this move has meant we are getting off to the best possible start for the New Year and new decade,” said Chris Brierley, who heads up the York branch.

“Our relocation underpins Ison Harrison’s growing presence in York and provides a great foundation for the future as we look to build relationships with clients and partner with other leading local businesses to provide the best legal advice possible.”
