Law firm Ison Harrison has opened a new branch in York, taking its network of offices in Yorkshire to 13.

The opening of the firms York 2,089 sq ft office on Micklegate today (29 October 2018) is part of the continued expansion of the firm, following the opening of Otley in Leeds earlier this year and Pudsey and Huddersfield in 2017.

Ison Harrison had an office on Bishopthorpe Road during the 1990s and the firm is returning to North Yorkshire to further expand its regional branch network.

The office is headed up by Chris Brierley, an experienced property solicitor with more than ten years’ experience in all aspects of residential conveyancing. He recently joined Ison Harrison having moved to the region to join the firm’s residential property team.

Joining Brierley is experienced commercial property solicitor Richard Scott, who specialises in all aspects of commercial property work, as well as development work and agricultural property.

The York team also includes Olivia Williams, a trainee solicitor in the new build property team.

Chris Brierley said: “York is a great city and we’re very pleased to open a new office here. The reputation the firm has established in West Yorkshire over the past 40 years will stand us in very good stead in York and the team is very excited about showcasing its property expertise to both the residential and commercial sector.”

Jonathan Wearing, managing partner at Ison Harrison, added: “This has been a great year for the firm. We’re commemorating Ison Harrison’s 40th anniversary this year and have now opened our second office of 2018. Following on from our new office launches last year and at the start of this year, this represents a very positive step for the firm.

“Ongoing growth underpins our objective of retaining a presence on the high street as this ensures we remain in touch with our clients and the communities we operate in. We’re very much looking forward to getting involved in the local community in York and to start offering the first class service for which we are renowned across the region.”
