National law firm moves into Truro

Kelly Grigg

National law firm Richard Nelson LLP has expanded into Cornwall.

The Legal 500 firm, which has 12 offices across England and Wales, has opened an office in the Penstraze Business Centre just outside Truro.

Specialising in family law, Kelly Grigg is a consultant solicitor in the Cornwall office. She said: “It’s great to see Cornwall included in the expansion plans of Richard Nelson LLP. If the pandemic has taught us anything it is that businesses can operate and thrive anywhere, on a regional or national level, regardless of how remote a place was once considered.”

The launch of the office in Cornwall marks a continuous period of growth for the firm, which has seen the team grow to 44 lawyers since it was founded in 2003.

Managing partner Marie Dancer said: “We are excited about our new office in Cornwall, which alongside our offices in Bristol and Plymouth, forms part of our strategy to increase our visibility and strengthen our presence in the south west.

“We will be offering our full range of legal services to Cornwall, including family, employment, litigation, professional discipline and criminal defence.”
