Milners, which launched in Harrogate at the same time it acquired a long-standing conveyancing practice, has relocated its team to Princes Square.

“After a year of growth – both in terms of staff and clients – moving to new offices in the heart of the town’s professional quarter is a natural progression for us,” said Milners’ managing partner, Simon Bass.

“Not only does the move act as a springboard for us to develop our services in the future, it also signals the confidence we have in Harrogate as a progressive centre of legal excellence.

“It is a town that is rapidly enhancing its profile and reputation for legal talent in a range of specialist areas.

“By bringing over 200 years of collective expertise, we are pleased to be at the forefront of this momentum – and contributing to the extra jobs and boost to the economy that this generates.”

Milners’ Harrogate team is led by its property partner Mat Haynes; Jessica Savage, who specialises in wills, trusts, probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney; and John Robson, residential property manager, who has more than 35 years’ conveyancing experience.

As part of its community support programme, Milners’ reception area will also be an art gallery, as it will continue to exhibit the work of Yorkshire artist David Stead within it.

The relocation to the new offices was carried out with support from the Harrogate commercial property agency FSS.

Milners is one of Yorkshire’s longest-established names in law and is celebrating its 120th anniversary year.

“Just as Harrogate has changed and modernised with the times, so too has the legal profession,” said Mr Bass.

“While we remain proud of our historic Yorkshire roots, we are very much future-focused and forward-thinking when finding the best solution for our clients, whatever their needs or challenges may be.”

As well as its Leeds HQ and Harrogate base, Milners has an office in Pontefract.
