YORKSHIRE law firm Holden Smith has opened an office in Ilkley.
The firm, co-founded in 2019 by James Smith, David Bancroft and Jamie Megson, opened the new office at 9 The Grove.
Kevin Britton, director and manager of the company’s Ilkley branch, said: “We are delighted to have established a presence in Ilkley. The new office is well located in the city center and will help us achieve our ambitious growth plans by expanding the geography of work we already do in our branches in Leeds, Huddersfield and Halifax.
Britton added: “Holden Smith has grown rapidly over the past 12 months and has recruited over 30 new employees, bringing our total headcount to 60 people. Now is the right time to open our fourth branch.
Holden Smith co-founder David Bancroft said: “We received over 6,000 new instructions in our last fiscal year with particular demand in our specialist residential and commercial real estate services, and we believe passionately that our approach of combining the latest legal technologies with customer interactions to deliver exceptional levels of service has been key to our success.
Mr Bancroft said the company was also looking to create new jobs as it continued to grow.
