Black Country law firm George Green has confirmed it is to open a new office in Wolverhampton in August.
The firm has taken the entire ground floor of 19 Waterloo Road (currently known as First City House). This building provides the firm with the space to accommodate its ambitious growth plans.
The ground floor is currently occupied by First City, which will relocate to larger and refurbished accommodation on the second and third floors. The existing space will be refurbished for its new tenants, coinciding with the re-naming of the building from First City House to 19 Waterloo Road.
Paul Bennett, George Green senior partner, said: “As a firm, we are extremely proud of our Black Country heritage, which dates back to 1897. The volume of Wolverhampton-based clients and professional contacts we have acquired over the years meant the city was the natural choice when we started weighing up our expansion options.”
George Green’s full-time Wolverhampton partners James Coles and Philip Round will be supported by a team of partners and staff based at the firm’s head office in Cradley Heath. The firm also has an office in Birmingham’s Colmore Business District.
