Pearson Solicitors in Failsworth

Some of the family law team have moved into premises on Oldham Road, Failsworth and the partnership are looking at investing in a bigger office in the vicinity in the new year.

“It has been quite a different year for many of us and no doubt the pandemic has affected certain areas of our business, but I am pleased that as a firm we have been able to adapt and actually grow some aspects of our practice and take on several new specialist legal advisers,” said Partner and Practice Manager, Joanne Ormston.

“We have changed our business model around somewhat during 2021 for certain areas of the practice and have gone back to our roots and to local legal offices servicing the local community. I am from Failsworth and my family live locally so it’s great to see a Pearson office on the doorstep.  We have a lot of clients from the area and so having a base in Failsworth make sense.”

“Our team of bespoke commercial solicitors in North Manchester at the Hollinwood  Business Centre, represent a wide variety of local and national businesses,”added Joanne.

Karen Kenyon brings to Pearson Solicitors 30 years of experience as a family law solicitor in Failsworth and her area of expertise is divorce and associated financial settlement work.  She previously worked for law firm Harold Stock and Co for many years but is delighted to join the bigger team at Pearson.

“I have previously worked for many years in Failsworth and am looking forward to getting back to the area with my colleague Dawn Atkinson,” said Karen Kenyon.

“When people come to me often they are distressed and often at the end of their tether and I thrive on meeting my clients and getting the right results for them, leaving them happy and hopeful at the end, so I am really looking forward to this new challenge with the bigger family and child care team at Pearson.”
