Leading Yorkshire law firm takes up residency in The Guildhall

Law firm Berwins has expanded its regional footprint with the launch of its York office in The Guildhall.

Their brand new new office will help the firm meet a growing demand from clients based in and around the city.

“York is a natural fit for us” said Managing Director, Paul Berwin. “As a firm, we have a long track record of supporting businesses and individuals in the area and expanding our presence there will enable us to better serve their needs.”


“As well as supporting clients, committing to a physical office – much as we have in Harrogate, Leeds, Sheffield and London – also enables us to fully play our part as a member of the city’s burgeoning business community.

“That dedication to caring for both client and community is at the heart of the way Berwins has operated since day one and will remain so as we continue to grow as a business.”

The Guildhall, parts of which date back to the 15th century, has recently undergone a multi-million-pound redevelopment, revitalising the site and making it fit for 21st century use as a base for businesses and centre for the wider community.

Commenting on the development, Oliver King, a well-known York lawyer and member of Berwins’ Corporate team added “We’re thrilled to be part of what is the most exciting developments I have seen in over a decade of practising in York.”

“The city is a vibrant place to live and do business and initiatives such as that surrounding the Guildhall underline the ambition there is here – a further synergy with Berwins.”

Berwins will support clients with a full range of legal advice from commercial matters to dispute resolution, family law to property.
