Bridge Law expands team with a duo of specialist solicitors

Bridge Law has appointed Jonathan Cass and Gayle Roberts to its specialist teams in dispute resolution and property amid an increasing number of new clients at the firm’s bases in Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.

The law firm, which was founded in the village of Marple Bridge in 2016 and went on to open a second office in Holmfirth in 2018, has seen significant growth in the past year, despite an initial lull in enquiries during the first lockdown.

Joining the firm’s Holmfirth team to establish and grow a full-time litigation and property team at Bridge Law’s Yorkshire practice is Cass, who has a wealth of experience in commercial property, commercial litigation and agriculture.

Cass commented: “I’m delighted to have joined the team at Bridge Law and help to establish the firm’s dispute resolution and property team as a full-time, permanent feature to the Holmfirth office. Previously this has been managed by our director, Claire Stewart, who has worked between Marple Bridge and Holmfirth so it’s an honour to take this on.”

Roberts, a consultant litigation solicitor who has previously worked in large city-centre firms and the Crown Prosecution Service as a senior crown prosecutor, has joined the dispute resolution team at the firm’s Marple Bridge head office.

Roberts’s specialisms span across commercial litigation, injunctions, contentious probate, property adjudications and defamation cases.

Claire Stewart, founder and director at Bridge Law, said: “The team and I are thrilled to welcome highly talented solicitors, Jonathan and Gayle to the team. Both share our dedication to excellent client care and each brings with them an exceptional level of skills and passion for their specialist areas, helping to extend our already comprehensive offering to clients.”

“We are very grateful to be continuing to grow and welcome new members to the team as, like all small businesses, times were rather uncertain over the pandemic period. However, to our surprise, client enquiries have shot up in the past six to twelve months and we are very grateful for the continued support from clients in our local communities and beyond.”

Bridge Law pride itself on its flexible approach to client services. As well as providing services to local clients from their offices in Marple Bridge and Holmfirth, the firm’s early adoption of technology in 2016 to meet client needs for remote appointments has enabled it to work on cases across the UK, including London, and internationally, including the Cayman Islands.
