VIPs toast law firm's new offices
Martin-Kaye Solicitors has its headquarters in Telford, but an increase in business from across the West Midlands has led to us opening new premises in the city.
Guests included the Mayor Councillor Milkinder Jaspal and Mayoress Jasbir Jaspal, and representatives from a wide range of businesses across the West Midlands region.
Martin-Kaye senior partner, Graham Davies, welcomed the audience and said his team were very keen to play an active role in the local business community.
“Wolverhampton has a proud history and a brilliant future, and we want to be very much a part of that future. Our VIP launch gave guests the opportunity to meet the lawyers who will be working in the city in a relaxed and sociable environment, and to find out more about our refreshingly different approach to doing business.”
Mayor Councillor Jaspal said: “We’d like to thank Martin-Kaye Solicitors for moving into Wolverhampton – working in partnership is very important as you can’t be successful on your own. If companies and organisations work with the council and each other, together we will prosper.”
Martin-Kaye’s new office at Bredon House, on Tettenhall Road, is now ready for business, and there has already been a great deal of client interest even before the doors opened.
Graham said: “Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen a marked increase in the number of enquiries coming from businesses in Wolverhampton and the Black Country. Our research shows there is a growing demand in the city for specialised legal services and we believe our range of skills will provide local businesses with greater choice.”
He said the firm was also keen to expand into the Wolverhampton area as it was developing into a vibrant area for business, particularly given the multi-million pound i54 development.
“It’s a natural expansion for our business as there is an even greater concentration of the size and types of businesses we act for, and in fact, many of our lawyers actually live or originate from the West Midlands, which makes the new office the obvious choice for us.”
