Despite a shared ethos and approach, Pearsons & Ward retained its original name until now, with both practices set to operate under the unified name Ware & Kay, led by managing director David Hyams.
Hyams explains, “The primary driving force behind the name change was about the firm unifying itself under one name to enhance the client service and streamline our operations.” The move aims to eliminate confusion and establish a cohesive brand identity in the legal market, reflecting a commitment to growth, innovation, and adaptability in the evolving legal landscape.
Hyams reassures clients that the change signifies a continuation of exceptional service and legal expertise, now amplified through the synergy of a unified entity. Emma Elwess, director and head of the Malton office, adds, “In analysing our collective strengths, objectives, and the needs of our clients, the change of name seemed the most natural step forward.”
Elwess emphasises benefits for families, individuals, and business clients, ensuring the continued availability of services such as wills & probate, residential property, family law, corporate & commercial services, commercial property, employment, and extensive litigation capability. She expresses optimism about the future, stating, “As we embark on this new chapter together, we aim to set even higher standards of legal service, guided by a shared ethos of integrity, effectiveness, and client-centric values.”
