Morecrofts invests in Knowsley with new Prescot office

by Lisa Bennett

Morecrofts Solicitors has announced plans to open a new office in Prescot town centre.

The new space on Warrington Road, adjacent to Prescot Town Hall, will offer the firm’s full range of award-winning legal services, including family law, conveyancing, employment and commercial law.

It is due to open its doors in early November and will become Morecrofts’ sixth location in the Liverpool City Region alongside Crosby, Woolton, Allerton, Wirral and Liverpool city centre.

The firm and its partners have received several high-profile awards in recent years and Morecrofts was shortlisted in the national Law Society Excellence Awards 2018.

Establish a presence in Knowsley

Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts Solicitors, said: “We have developed a number of strong client and professional relationships with Knowsley in recent years, including with Knowsley Council and the Chamber of Commerce, so it feels like a natural next step to invest in the borough and establish a permanent presence here. We are committed to working with Knowsley businesses wherever possible, beginning with the development of the office itself.”

David Parr, finance partner at the firm, said: “Having grown up in Prescot, it gives me enormous pleasure to return here to open our latest office. Prescot is a busy, ambitious town with big plans for the future and we have found an excellent location from which to serve local clients and grow our business together.”

Lesley Martin-Wright, chief executive of Knowsley Chamber and Head of Knowsley Growth Hub, said: “Over a long period of time, Morecrofts has demonstrated its commitment to Knowsley, whether it’s through their senior team members giving their time as trustees or board members of local not-for-profit organisations or supporting local businesses to take part in the Merseyside Independent Business Awards, which Morecrofts organises.

“Their decision to invest in Knowsley and open a new office in Prescot is another vote of confidence in the future of Knowsley and what we hope to achieve here.”
