Milners moves into new office in Harrogate

Leeds-headquartered law firm Milners has marked its first anniversary in Harrogate by expanding into new offices.

The firm, which launched in the spa town at the same time it acquired a long-standing conveyancing practice, has relocated its team to Princes Square.

The Harrogate team of Milners is spearheaded by its property partner Mat Haynes. Jessica Savage, who specialises in wills, trusts, probate and lasting powers of attorney, and John Robson, residential property manager, are also part of the team.

As part of its community support programme, the firm’s reception area will also function as an art gallery and will exhibit the work of popular Yorkshire artist David Stead.

The relocation to the new office was carried out with support from the Harrogate commercial property agency, FSS.

Milners is celebrating its 120th anniversary year. The launch of a Harrogate office last year heralded the first expansion into North Yorkshire for Milners.

As well as its new Harrogate presence, the firm has other established bases in both Leeds and Pontefract.

“After a year of growth—both in terms of staff and clients—moving to new offices in the heart of the town’s professional quarter is a natural progression for us,” said Simon Bass, managing partner of Milners. “Not only does the move act as a springboard for us to develop our services in the future, it also signals the confidence we have in Harrogate as a progressive centre of legal excellence.”

“It is a town that is rapidly enhancing its profile and reputation for legal talent in a range of specialist areas. By bringing over 200 years of collective expertise, we are pleased to be at the forefront of this momentum—and contributing to the extra jobs and boost to the economy that this generates.”
