A fast growing, North-East firm of solicitors is celebrating the opening of their third office in Penrith, Cumbria.
EMG Solicitors specialises in court of protection, wills, trusts and probate, family, employment, residential conveyancing and commercial property services as they continue to build a strong reputation in the legal sector.
The new office which officially opened last week (on 21st Sep 2022) will support EMG Solicitors’ continued growth which has seen revenue increase in the last year by approximately 28% from £3.4 million to £4.3 million. Total headcount has also grown in 12 months with a further 23 staff members, taking the total number of employees to 103.  The opening of the new branch is testament to their ongoing growth and becomes a welcome addition to their existing Durham and Newcastle divisions.
The Penrith office will be led by Director and Wills, Trusts & Probate solicitor Samantha Edward where their full range of legal services will be available.   Joining Samantha will also be an experienced team of property and family lawyers.
Emma Gaudern, Managing Director of EMG Solicitors said:
“The opening of the Penrith office marks an incredibly exciting time for EMG Solicitors as we continue to grow and expand. I’m very proud of how far the business has come since our first office opened in Durham 2014, shortly followed by our Newcastle office in 2019 and now Penrith.  We are one big family here at EMG and it’s wonderful to see it flourish.
Our continued growth however really is testament to the talent and hard work of every individual that works here. As well as our legal expertise, we pride ourselves heavily on being a people’s business, developing strong, longstanding client relationships through the incredible teams we have across every department.
But our growth and ambition doesn’t stop there. We are delighted to see our trainee recruitment scheme in full swing as we help shape and support the next generation of legal professionals. Our ongoing recruitment drive will also continue with a range of fantastic career opportunities available.
The door is always open at EMG Solicitors and we remain keen to talk to any prospective colleagues who feel they could help enhance our offering and become a welcome addition to the team.”
Samantha Edward, Director and Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate said:
“The Lake District is home to many individuals, companies and professional services providers who we are very much looking forward to working with.
For me personally, being based in the new office also marks a return back home, to where I was born and bred, so it’s a very special moment in my career.  Having a real understanding of the area and local community is also something I hope will provide added value to our clients. Both myself and the team are available for a chat anytime, so please don’t hesitate to drop us a line to find out how we can support you.”
 Alongside their legal expertise, the EMG team are also incredibly proud of their longstanding commitment in helping their local communities, support they are also looking to extend across Cumbria via their EMG Charitable Fund, where 5% percent of the company’s profits are given to good causes.
The business is also proud to have raised over £60K for brain injury charity Headway, a cause close to their hearts and one that aligns closely with their specialism in court of protection work.
