Established Yorkshire law firm expands with move to new offices

Simon Bass, Milners’ managing partner and the team have expanded into a new office

Milners has marked its first anniversary in Harrogate by expanding into new offices.

Milners’ Harrogate team is spearheaded by its Property Partner Mat Haynes; Jessica Savage, who specialises in wills, trusts, probate and lasting powers of attorney; and John Robson, residential property manager, with more than 35 years’ expertise in conveyancing.

On Milners’ relocation to Princes Square, managing partner, Simon Bass, said: “After a year of growth – both in terms of staff and clients – moving to new offices in the heart of Harrogate’s professional quarter is a natural progression for us.

“Not only does the move act as a springboard for us to develop our services in the future, it also signals the confidence we have in Harrogate as a progressive centre of legal excellence.

“It is a town that is rapidly enhancing its profile and reputation for legal talent in a range of specialist areas.

“By bringing over 200 years of collective expertise, we are pleased to be at the forefront of this momentum – and contributing to the extra jobs and boost to the economy that this generates.”

As part of its community support programme, Milners reception area will have the added dimension of also being an art gallery as it will continue to exhibit the work of popular Yorkshire artist David Stead within it.

The relocation to the new offices was carried out with support from the Harrogate commercial property agency, FSS.

The launch of a Harrogate office last year heralded the first expansion into North Yorkshire for Milners.  As well as its new Harrogate presence, the solicitors has its headquarters in Leeds and an office in Pontefract.
