On 8th May the offices were totally destroyed by a fire which started in the supermarket below the firm’s offices. With a clear contingency plan in place the firm quickly relocated to its new premises at Dencora Court, Tylers Avenue, Southend-on-Sea. Although the fire was devastating at the time – the firm remains incredibly grateful to its employees and the local community who worked together to defy the odds and re-build.

The firm has grown from strength to strength and is continuing to expand in terms of legal services offerings and number of staff to support our increasing client base.
