Leading national law firm Reeds Solicitors LLP (Reeds) has today opened the doors to two new UK offices located in Bridgend and Iver.
The new Bridgend office in South Wales, is led by criminal solicitor Christopher Lacey, Team Leader of Reeds’ Cardiff Magistrate Court team. Lacey is joined by duty solicitor Nathan Adams and plans a recruitment drive to bolster the firm’s newest Welsh team. Managing a large and varied caseload whilst routinely undertaking the more complex cases, Lacey will continue to use his experience and judgement to manage both the Cardiff and Bridgend Magistrates Court teams.
The newly opened Iver office near Slough in the Southeast of England, is led by Tom Brymer, criminal partner and area manager for Reeds’ Central area, which includes Oxford, Reading, Basingstoke and Eastbourne.
The two newest openings bring Reeds’ total portfolio of offices to 25 across England and Wales, following the recent launch of the firm’s Northampton office.
Reeds’ managing partner, Jan Matthews commented on the openings:
“This is a busy time for us all here at Reeds. Despite the ongoing pay disputes around legal aid, and the market uncertainty affecting the UK, we continue to expand where opportunities arise. We are dedicated to what we see as a necessary service for our local communities, services that are now perhaps more important than ever given the current cost-of-living crisis.
We are extremely proud to be recognised as one of the UK’s largest leading legal aid firms. Despite the long-standing underinvestment of the criminal justice system, we are determined to continue to provide legal aid services, aided by the expansion our bespoke privately funded services across England and Wales. We are there to help no matter what your circumstances.”
The Bridgend office is located at C5 Business Centre, North Rd, Bridgend Industrial Estate, CF31 3TP.
The Iver office is located in Office 1, Grantwood House, The Ridgeway, Iver, SL0 9HW.
