Thrings pledges commitment to Marlborough
Leading national law firm Thrings has restated its commitment to the people of Marlborough by opening a new office in the heart of the market town.
Thrings will extend its near eight-decade association with Marlborough by moving from its current premises at Ailesbury Court near the high street to new, fully refurbished offices at 1 The Green – one of the town’s premier business addresses.
To celebrate the opening of the new premises, business leaders from Marlborough and the surrounding area joined members of the press and Thrings staff at Coles Bar and Restaurant on 10 September.
The decision to remain at the heart of the business community in the town means Thrings’ established client base in Marlborough will continue to receive advice on a full range of private legal services – including wills and inheritance, tax planning and trusts, family and relationships, and residential property and conveyancing – in a modern and spacious office environment.
With increasingly discerning clients seeking an holistic approach to their legal affairs to achieve their specific objectives, Thrings’ Marlborough-based solicitors will also continue to work closely with their colleagues from the firm’s Corporate and Commercial teams in Swindon, Bath, Bristol and London.
Thrings’ offering in Marlborough will be headed by partner Fiona Kellow, who will lead a highly experienced team of lawyers, including family law specialists Matthew Kellow and Anna Patterson, and private property solicitor, Rachel O’Sullivan.
Opening a new office in Marlborough also sees Thrings continue its association with the town which first began almost 80 years ago.
Respected local solicitor Bernard Ford moved to practise law in Marlborough in 1938, where he was joined by his son, Richard, at the newly-created Ford and Ford. Richard, currently a consultant at Thrings, went on to become senior partner at Wood Awdry Ford, which merged with Thring Townsend Lee & Pembertons in 2008.
Fiona Kellow said: “Thrings is a progressive law firm with a strong reputation for providing first-class family and private client services. But with many business people also having personal issues that need advice, we recognise that an holistic approach needs to be taken over clients’ legal affairs.
“The close working relationship between our team of niche family and private client solicitors in Marlborough and their Corporate and Commercial colleagues in our four main UK offices means we are able to continue providing the people of Marlborough with a truly integrated legal service.
“As a firm, Thrings is extremely proud of its 76-year association with Marlborough, its people and its place within the town’s thriving business community.”
