Harrison Drury’s property law team has advised business rescue and recovery specialist Leonard Curtis on its lease of new premises in Lancashire.
The Bury-headquartered firm has opened an office at South Rings Office Village, a newly-built flagship office development at Bamber Bridge, near Preston.
The firm has taken a 1,400 sq ft unit on a 10-year lease at South Rings, which has been built by Roundhouse Properties.
The expansion takes the number of Leonard Curtis offices to nine. It also has offices in Manchester, London, Birmingham and Bristol and employs more than 150 staff.
Owen McKenna, who led the property team at Harrison Drury, said: “Leonard Curtis is a long-established firm that has helped steer many business owners away from danger, as well as assisting creditors and professionals with debt and financial problems. This move will allow the firm to serve the whole of Lancashire and beyond due to South Rings’ location at a key interchange between three North West motorways.”
The new Lancashire office is being led by newly-appointed director Mark Delaney and existing director Mark Colman.
Mark Delaney said: “In these difficult financial times, more and more small businesses are struggling with debt, Crown arrears and cashflow problems. The convenient and central location of our new Preston office will make our services more accessible to companies based not only in Lancashire, but also in Merseyside and Cumbria.”
