HCR Hewitsons move into Lancaster House, creating a regional legal hub

28th November 2022

Client demand for a seamless service across a wider range of legal specialisms has enabled HCR Hewitsons to invest in both new people and modern, new offices and a larger team that will be based in Lancaster House, on the same site as the University of Northampton’s Waterside campus, in the heart of a thriving, innovative community.

The new Central England office will enhance the firm’s position as the leading law firm in the region. Joint Head of Office, Charlotte Thornton-Smith says, “Our new location provides the perfect springboard for continued growth which we anticipate will come from our expanded business services and private client offers along with our deep sector expertise which we provide to individuals, businesses and organisations across the region. I am excited about some of the new hires we have in the pipeline and look forward to being able to share more news about these soon.”

Dominic Hopkins, who shares the leadership of the new office with Charlotte, says, “This move gives us a wonderful new platform for colleagues to collaborate and for personal growth and career development for all our staff. A dynamic hub in the firm’s extensive network of offices, reflecting the strength and clear potential of the region. Since Hewitsons’ merger with HCR last year, we have really enjoyed being able to draw on the firm’s wider resources to the benefit of businesses and community across the region.”

The Central England team moved into Lancaster House, Nunn Mills Road on Monday 28 November and look forward to hosting clients, professional contacts and community partners on Tuesday 6 December. If you have questions or would like to meet any of our team please get in touch.

Harrison Clark Rickerbys has more than 800 staff and partners based at offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Central England, Cheltenham, Hereford, London, Thames Valley, Worcester and the Wye Valley, providing a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients regionally and nationwide.
