Our Legal services departments are headed by the Partners who each specialise in a particular area of legal work (see Our People) from the team’s head office in Barrow in Furness.
Property services are directed by Angela Cornthwaite, MNAEA assisted by highly-qualified valuers and negotiators.
Our Financial services department covers a broad range of services and is directed by Derek Pearce Cert PFS, Cert CII(MP), MNAEA.
