Councillor Susan Bagshaw, the 39th Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe took on the duty of cutting the ribbon and opened Edward Hands & Lewis Solicitors’ newest branch, on Chilwell Road in Beeston, Nottinghamshire.
Edward Hands & Lewis Solicitors (EHL) now has 12 branches at various locations across the UK, however, this is their first office in the Nottinghamshire region.
Paul Stubbs, Regional Director, said: “I am delighted that we now have a presence in Nottinghamshire. From the start, EHL had one main goal and that was to make legal services as accessible as possible to the public.
“By continually expanding our branch network and opening offices in new regions allows us to do just this. With this being our very first office in Nottingham, this is a very exciting time for EHL Solicitors and I am very much looking forward to seeing what the next few years will bring!”
Jason Hathaway became the managing director of EHL Solicitors in August 2007 and back then there was just the one branch located in Loughborough. Over the past 9 years, Jason has continued to grow the firm and there is currently 12 branches, soon to be 14 branches with 2 more due to be opened before the end of May this year.
With the firm’s rapid growth in such a short period of time, EHL Solicitors are currently one of the top 20 fastest growing law firms in the UK.
Even with such rapid growth, EHL continues to keep its reputation of ensuring high levels of customer care and offering invaluable support to the community and surrounding areas.
Located on Chilwell Road close to Beeston’s town centre, EHL’s new branch is ideally located for clients to pop in at any time to talk with their solicitor or advisor.
With an excess of already 150 employees, EHL Solicitors will continue to grow and open offices in various local town and cities across the UK.
