Rise in Demand for Legal Advice Sees Battens Solicitors Open New Office in Wareham

Battens Solicitors - a top 500 legal firm and one of the largest in the South West - is opening a new office in Wareham on 13th February in response to the success of its once-weekly legal clinic at Wareham Library.  

“We have been running clinics in Wareham for just over a year, and every week we see more and more people coming to us for advice on a wide range of issues including residential property, wills and lasting powers of attorney, debt recovery, matrimonial, employment and dispute resolution,” explains Natalie Mason, Associate solicitor at Battens. “It’s now reached the point where we simply can’t meet the demand in the clinic alone; opening an office is the natural next step.”  

The launch of a dedicated office in Wareham means that Battens will be able to provide a full range of legal services to the people and businesses of Wareham, and the wider Purbeck area, five days a week instead of just one.  

The new office, which is centrally located on Wareham’s West Street, aims to be as convenient and welcoming as its clinics.

"As someone from Wareham, I feel fortunate that alongside my colleagues we are able to offer our services in my locality.  Our Wareham team know the area, its people and the problems they face,” says Angela Loveless, Debt Recovery Manager. “We’ve designed our office to be as welcoming and accessible as possible, so if you’re passing, drop in and make an appointment. We’d love to see you and will do our best to help you straight away."  

In addition to Natalie and Angela, the Wareham team include Associate Solicitor, Sarah Ford.  

“An office in Wareham will complement our existing South Dorset offices in Dorchester and Weymouth” explains Sarah. “We are all really looking forward to opening the doors to the office and the new opportunities it will bring”  

In celebration of the new office, residents and businesses in the BH19 and BH20 areas can receive 10% off all legal support on residential sales and purchases, and on wills and lasting powers of attorney. This exclusive offer runs until 1st May 2017 on new instructions. For more details, please call Natalie, Angela or Sarah on 01929 768720 or email enquiries@battens.co.uk
