Battens to Open New Office in Castle Cary

Battens Solicitors, one of the most respected law firms in the South West, has announced the opening of a new office in Castle Cary.

The firm, which has been running weekly legal clinics in the market town since 2015, says demand has prompted them to establish a permanent base. 

Sally Manning, Chartered Legal Executive at Battens, said:

“We have been running legal clinics one morning a week in Castle Cary for more than three years and they have always been well attended, but our limited availability has been difficult for some of our clients and as time’s gone, we’ve realised there is a need for something more permanent.”

Jason Carr, Solicitor at Battens, added:

“In particular, we have seen an increasingly high demand for advice in conveyancing, family law, civil litigation, property dispute and private client matters, and we're looking forward to being able to provide local clients with the legal expertise they need in these, and all other areas, of the law, every day of the working week.”

The new office, which is ideally located on the high street, will officially open its doors on Monday 19th February and, to celebrate, Battens is inviting local people to join them for light refreshments from Tuesday 20th - Friday 23rd, 9am-11am during their first week. The firm is also hosting an open evening for local businesses on Thursday 22nd February from 4pm-7pm.

“I live in Castle Cary myself," explained Sally, "so I know the area very well. The office space we are occupying has seen several different retail businesses come and go over the years which is disappointing for the townspeople. I hope our new office will reassure people of our commitment to them and to the town.”
