New premises for Pearson Solicitors in Saddleworth

  • Posted on

A well known and much loved building on the High Street in Uppermill is being given a new lease of life when Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers move back into Saddleworth.

Over the next twelve months, the former Oldham Chronicle offices at 92-94 High Street, Uppermill, will be transformed and sympathetically refurbished.

As well as housing our solicitors and financial advisers to provide, the new building will also create a much-needed meeting room hub in the heart of the village, providing local businesses with space to hire.

Modern meeting rooms will be available and attention is being given to creating a welcoming, yet professional service centre for clients who want to use a room for a simple hour long meeting, or reserve a boardroom for full team meetings away from their own offices.

History of Pearson's in Saddleworth

For generations the Pearson name has been synonymous with the local area. We had village centre offices for many years until merging with other Solicitors in Oldham. Now some of our team are going to be based at the new offices and are looking forward to welcoming clients into newly refurbished offices.

“We have so many Saddleworth based clients and staff members who live locally that it was an easy decision to move back into the area.  We have over 70 staff now and as our business grows and develops we wanted to provide great offices facilities as we look to recruit more experienced solicitors and young trainees,” said Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers Senior Partner, Richard Eastwood.

Having serviced meeting rooms is something we recognised as being needed in the area and the bespoke Pearson business suite right at the centre of the village will provide just that.  With more and more people working from home having a great place on your doorstep for those important face to face meetings is a bonus. Privacy for your meeting, good Wi-Fi, somewhere to park, a warm welcome and consistently high levels of service across all areas will be standard.

“We will have a full service legal team based in Uppermill covering both business and personal law and look forward to being part of, and contributing to the local economy, putting Uppermill firmly on the professional business map.

This new office forms part of our strategic plan and we are excited to start work and get the building up to scratch,” he added.

The building will be reinvigorated, getting a new frontage in keeping with the local area, landscaping, a thorough facelift and sandblasting, parking for staff and visitors and electrical vehicle charge points.

We have been working with the team at Whittaker Design in Oldham to help transform the building and it was important to us to keep the work local.

Lee Hollinworth, Partner at the firm said:

“Whittaker Design are proud to be supporting another long established Oldham business with their new regional office coming to Uppermill. The conversion of this prominent building on the Square will bring it back into use and enhance the area with a new entrance, general upgrading of the building and improvements around the plot.”

The new office in Uppermill is the fourth addition to the Pearson group.  The company offers a complete range of legal and financial services in Oldham, North Manchester and Failsworth.
