Leading South West law firm, Battens Solicitors is celebrating opening a new office in Bridport, West Dorset as part of its regional strategic plan for growth.

The new premises which has opened in West Street in April, places Battens at the heart of Bridport’s thriving business community, offering clients a convenient high street location to see a solicitor on a face- to- face basis.

A team of six staff will be based at the new office, including specialists in Personal Injury law, Private Client and Residential Property law but the office will also act as a hub where clients can access a suite of outstanding legal services.

This latest branch takes Batten’s network of offices to 7, and its fourth premises in Dorset. The firm employs 155 staff at offices in Somerset and Dorset.

The Managing Director of Battens Solicitors Ceri Stephens commented; “The opening of the Bridport office is a significant development for the firm which forms part of our strategic plan for growth, and which gives us the opportunity to expand our footprint further into Dorset as we already have three offices at Sherborne, Dorchester and Wareham. This latest move means we can build on existing links with other businesses as well as forging new relationships with commercial contacts and clients at a location which is convenient for everyone. “
