A Yorkshire law firms has opened its sixteenth and newest branch, making its debut in Harrogate.

The move into the spa town by Ison Harrison, its second in North Yorkshire, further strengthens its foothold within the region.

The new office, located at 6a Albert Street, which was formerly occupied by Manning Stainton estate agents, will host a team of legal experts led by branch manager Georgina Pogge-von Strandmann, an expert in residential property. Georgina joined the residential property team in 2015 bringing several years of local and national experience to the firm.

Georgina is joined by residential property solicitor and Harrogate-resident James Pascoe and Partner, Shaun Hulme, a private family law solicitor who first joined Ison Harrison in 2013. In April 2015 Shaun qualified as a solicitor in the private family law department. The team will be strengthened further over the coming months.

In addition to property and family law, the new Harrogate office will handle all legal matters, personal and business, via its network of regional offices and the vast and broad experience of its in-house lawyers.

Ison Harrison managing partner Jonathan Wearing, said: “Despite the many challenges presented by the past 18 months, the firm has been able to maintain the momentum which has built up over many years of representing people across the region. When we opened our office in York in 2018, we were conscious that if it proved to be successful that we might need to add to our presence in North Yorkshire and look for opportunities to take on premises in Harrogate to accommodate the needs of local clients but the speed with which our York office has established itself has been quicker than anyone had anticipated."
