Newport Land and Law plans to expand nationally

Yorkshire firm Newport Land and Law is planning to expand nationally after doubling the size of its headquarters and growing its team.

Wakefield-based Newport Land and Law saw its caseload double in 2020 as the property market boomed.

The firm is moving to larger premises at the Nostell Priory and has recruited consultant solicitors Andy Challener, Leah Gore, Mike Scott, and Emma Morris.

Newport Land and Law is also growing its consultancy offering, to support experienced self-employed lawyers with the backing of an experienced team. The firm believes it is a model that will help provide businesses and individuals with access to expert advice while offering value for money.  

The firm offers a range of property and private client law services and is expanding its dispute resolution practice. New offices are under consideration in Oxford and South Wales, with additional offices planned across the UK.

Commenting on the expansion plans, Anna Newport, founder and director of Newport Land and Law, said: “Over the years we have established a national reputation for our expertise in everything from trusts and wills to estates and property law. We’ve built a client base with national reach and now is the time to accelerate our ambitions with new offices.”

“The development of our consultancy offer will give talented lawyers the flexibility they want with the support of an established operation that shares their values and a focus on client service.”

“Despite all the challenges, 2020 provided a strong launchpad for growth. Our caseload in the final quarter of the year was 400% up on the year before, and we’ve seen the expansion of both our probate services and demand for dispute resolution.”  

The firm is also expanding its administrative team with the appointment of a full-time office manager, and it is recruiting a junior administrator and communications executive under the government’s kickstart scheme.
