Leading regional law-firm, Price Slater Gawne, is celebrating 10 years in business.
Established in 2010, the Altrincham based practice has grown to become one of the most dynamic, forward-thinking law firms in the Greater Manchester area.
One of the firm’s founding partners, Victoria Price, told us
“It only seems like yesterday since we welcomed our first clients. We have grown from a small clinical negligence and personal injury firm to one that now also specialises in family law, wills, probate and trusts, and court of protection services. We now represent clients old and young, locally and nationally.”
Despite having a combined total of over 300 years of legal expertise amongst its lawyers, the firm has broken free of the traditional legal world with an ambitious vision in mind: to create a legal service practise that is accessible, approachable and most of all, flexible.
Mark Slater told us “We’re proud to do things differently here at Price Slater Gawne and our results speak for themselves. We’ve been determined to promote a better way of working to encourage a healthy work /life balance. We champion flexible working practices so that our staff can enjoy their work and flourish! There is no great secret to the fact that happy people do a better job for their clients.”
The firm now comprises 47 members of staff; some are employed directly and some are retained as consultants. The firm has apprentices, trainee solicitors, paralegals, junior and senior solicitors, in-house accountants and in-house costs draftsmen – all of which are supported by a first-rate admin team and marketing specialists.
As the firm continues to go from strength to strength, the future looks bright.
Chris Gawne explained “We have benefitted greatly from our move to The Downs in Altrincham in 2018. This relocation has put us on the map visually as well as providing a welcoming space for clients to come and meet with us. We always have an open door for clients old and new. There are good transport links to the office and there is always something going on in Altrincham centre. We are really enjoying being at the heart of this progressive town.”
It is the firm’s intention to continue to invest in its infrastructure and its people with a view to achieving their ambitious growth goals over the next 5-10 years.
All 3 directors agree that they can’t let the celebrations pass without paying homage to those who have helped the firm achieve its success, Victoria said “We’re blessed to have some of the UK’s most dynamic staff. We’re also very lucky to have excellent relationships with other businesses, locally and nationally who complement and support the work we do.
We would also like to say a huge thanks to our clients for the loyalty and support they have shown us over the years. We are very privileged to have been able to act for them.”
