Llangollen's oldest law firm expands its range of services

Llangollen's oldest law firm has expanded the services available at its town offices after returning to the Old Bank Chambers in Berwyn Street earlier this year.

GHP Legal, formerly Gwilym Hughes & Partners, originally occupied the Old Bank Chambers following the 1991 acquisition of Charles Richards & Sons, a family practice which had been in the town for over 100 years. The firm later moved to the Malthouse Business Centre.

Latterly GHP Legal was represented by two solicitors providing services relating to Property, Wills, Probate and Trusts. A wider range of services was always available at the firm's Wrexham and Oswestry offices, but an increase in enquiries for them has prompted an expansion of the Llangollen team.  Six solicitors will now be available for appointments in Llangollen, including two fluent Welsh speakers.
