Marple Bridge, Holmfirth and London based, Bridge Law Solicitors, has now opened an office in the heart of Cheshire, in Wilmslow, headed by rising legal star, Sophie Murgatroyd.
The new office will bring the company’s equine law expertise to Cheshire, a major differentiator for the law firm, as few solicitors cover this niche area in the county.
The Wilmslow office will also bring experienced family, employment, wills and probate solicitors to the region. Replicating the high-quality service and professional legal offerings of the Marple Bridge, Holmfirth and London offices, it will particularly focus on efficiently and cost effectively resolving disputes.
Sophie Murgatroyd, Solicitor and Head of Wilmslow Practice, said: “It’s a delight to be opening Bridge Law Solicitors’ Wilmslow branch. Following the huge success of the recently formed Equine Law Department and continued growth in ourlegal practice, we feel it’s the right time to have a presence in the heart of Cheshire.”
Sophie Murgatroyd is recognised as a leader in equine law, as well as being a firm favourite amongst high profile individuals, regularly being instructed to draft social media endorsement agreements. Sophie will continue to focus on all areas of dispute resolution including agricultural work, debt recovery, property disputes and professional negligence.
Sophie added: “As a competitive rider myself, it didn’t take long before I was inundated with equine work, allowing the opportunity to expand the firm into the heart of Wilmslow, something no newly qualified solicitor has ever done before.
“As a Cheshire girl, having my own office in the county is a real honour. At Bridge Law Solicitors, we are committed to developing a solid footprint in the region, allowing us to both expand and be closer to our large portfolio of clients.”
