We are announcing today that we are responding to changes in the legal services marketplace by consolidating our business operation into the Petworth, Chichester and Storrington offices.
The partners have taken the decision to close the Midhurst office from 29th June this year, after undertaking a careful review of how they could best meet the growing demand for their services across the county. The firm had been looking for larger, more suitable premises in their Midhurst location but a shortage of good centrally placed commercial premises meant this was not possible.
From June, clients and new business from Midhurst will be supported in our Petworth and Chichester offices, which continue alongside the office in Storrington.
Chris Wise, Senior Partner said: “We believe the consolidation of our Midhurst services into the Petworth and Chichester offices will ensure a high level of support and resources will be provided to our many loyal Midhurst clients and introducers.
The legal services market continues to change rapidly and we must evolve and look to the future to meet these different demands. By focusing our resources into a smaller number of larger office locations we can better service our clients’ ongoing needs.”
Long-serving Midhurst Partner, Bridget Davies, well known to many people in the area, will be transferring to the Petworth office, together with a number of support staff, in order to maintain an important continuity for clients.
