New office, new faces in Longridge for Vincents

Vincents Solicitors has moved its Longridge office to new premises and welcomed three new members of staff. The team has relocated to an office in Towneley Parade from its previous home on Calder Avenue.

Vincents opened in Longridge in 2010 and has made the move to bigger premises following a recent recruitment drive, to meet the demands of an increasing workload, and to allow for future expansion.

Trainee Legal executive Emily Hartill and administration assistant Kate Hopkins have joined the team to support the growing demands of residential conveyancing instructions. They are joined by new receptionist Maureen Bamber.

Solicitor Talitha Murphy heads the Longridge office, which offers conveyancing, wills, probates and powers of attorney services, and can draw upon experts elsewhere in the business across any of the firm’s other offices, in relation to other areas of the law.

Following significant new client wins, and 65 per cent growth in the Longridge team’s business over the last two years, Talitha is pleased to welcome the three new starters. She said: “It’s great to see Emily, Kate and Maureen settling into the new office and they’re already becoming familiar faces with our clients. All three are knowledgeable and professional while remaining friendly and approachable which is extremely important for helping customers through often stressful and difficult times.

“I believe very strongly in being part of the community, which is why we have an open door policy where anyone can come in to talk things through. We also like to get involved with what is happening locally and sponsor a shield for the Longridge netball team and shirts for Chipping Reds Under 15s and are members of the Longridge Business Group.”

Vincents Solicitors is headquartered in Preston’s Winckley Square and has six regional offices across the county, in Longridge, Garstang, Knott End, Colne, Penwortham and Lytham. The new appointments and investment in the Longridge office is part of a company-wide expansion which saw the recent launch of new offices in Colne and Lytham. The current recruitment drive aims to boost the family law, residential property and commercial teams, enhancing services for existing clients and to enable new business growth. Vincents also offers services in criminal and employment law, motoring offences and personal injury.
