A leading Hertfordshire law firm with more than two centuries’ experience serving its local community, is expanding its horizons and has chosen Harlow as a base for its new Essex operation.

Longmores Solicitors has a longstanding history of representing private clients, combined with a thriving commercial arm.

The firm has chosen Harlow as a new base for its ever-expanding commercial team.

The new office, based at the Harlow Enterprise Hub, opened its doors to local business and members of the public seeking commercial advice on 7th March and is headed by partner, Catrin Mills.

Catrin specialises in employment law and will be supported by Rina Sond, a solicitor with expertise in commercial law and intellectual property, together with John Wagstaffe, who brings with him a wealth of experience in commercial property litigation.

Longmores’ Senior Partner, Anna Baptist, said: “The new office represents an exciting period of growth for the firm and will be a springboard from which will help us to expand our services in Harlow and the surrounding areas.

“We are fortunate to already represent a number of businesses and individuals within the area and our new base will allow us to build on existing relationships and also offer help and advice to new clients.”

Catrin Mills, Commercial Team Partner, said: “Harlow has a strong business sector and a buoyant local economy which I am thrilled to now be a part of.

“We are excited to join other Harlow employers in generating jobs in the area, and everyone in the Longmores team is looking forward to supporting both existing and new local clients.

“We are eager to demonstrate how Longmores’ friendly, no-nonsense approach to commercial legal matters can make a real difference to the local business community.”

Longmores is ranked in both the Chambers UK and Legal 500 directories, and was recently awarded the Investors In People ‘gold’ standard, becoming only the second law firm in Hertfordshire to achieve this.
