Legal firm expands with new office in Bradford

Skipton and Keighley-based Law Firm AWB Charlesworth has expanded its Commercial Department by opening a third office in Bradford city centre.

AWB Charlesworth has a practice history stretching 250 years, created by the merging of three Yorkshire Legal Practices (former Armstrong Wood & Bridgman, Charlesworth Wood & Brown & Umberto Vietri Business Lawyers – all Keighley and Skipton based).

The new Bradford office (in the City Hub building, Little Germany, Bradford) will see Umberto Vietri (Partner- Commercial and Employment Law) heading up the Commercial team.

Mr Vietri says: “These are exciting times for the firm. Since our merger we have continued to grow and develop in all areas of the business and have continually looked to grow our commercial presence. We see opening a commercial office in Bradford as a great opportunity for us.”

Alongside the new office opening, AWB Charlesworth has appointed a permanent Marketing Executive in Melanie Crewe to support practice development plans. Melanie will be working across the three offices, with particular involvement in the Bradford office opening.
