Blackburn with Darwen Council is delighted to announce the latest tenant to its flagship town centre offices, One Cathedral Square.
Modern multi-service law firm, AWH Solicitors, will take up letting of the first floor in the Piazza Square-based building in Blackburn’s Cathedral Quarter.
Around 40 staff will move into the new premises on January 2nd 2020 and will be immediately ready to service clients from the new location.
AWH’s vision is to be the leading personal legal services provider in the North West. Services offered include: personal injury; family and employment law; conveyancing; wills, probate and trusts; criminal litigation; road traffic law; civil litigation and mental health law.
The company’s head office is in Manchester and the move to Blackburn with Darwen is part of a major expansion with plans to open more offices in key locations in the North West of England, servicing clients across the country.
The firm expects that the move will also create around 25 new jobs over the forthcoming year.
Martin Kelly, Blackburn with Darwen Council’s Director of Growth and Development, said:
This is fantastic news and I warmly welcome AWH Solicitors to One Cathedral Square, which is an impressive base and location for any business.
AWH’s decision to invest in Blackburn is a clear demonstration of business confidence in our town centre. I look forward to seeing the firm flourish in its new location and create further employment opportunities down the line.
Abdul W. Hussain, Managing Director of AWH Solicitors, said:
We are delighted to make this move to Blackburn with Darwen and the grade A facilities at One Cathedral Square. Our main aim is to improve as many people’s lives as possible with our services and will always consider our clients’ needs with every decision we make. To that end the central location is perfect for our clients, who often prefer to speak to their solicitor in person.
We also want to attract the best and brightest individuals to join our company and I’m confident that, in our new town centre location, we will have a good chance of doing that with the great facilities and transport connections.
