Senior partner, Nigel Priestley said, “I am delighted to welcome Adam on board.  He will be heading up our Business Development activities, following his successful project management of our new venture, elderflower. This brings together a network of legal and financial specialists to advise older clients on issues that affect them”.

Mr Priestley continued, “At Ridley and Hall we’ve recently acquired 3 new partners; Michael George, Kevin Ludgate and Adam Fletcher. I’m confident that by growing, we are in a stronger position to meet the changing needs of our clients both regionally and nationally.”

With over 10 years’ experience in residential property,  in addition to his business development role, Adam will continue to undertake property work for his large client following, who appreciate his proactive approach and excellent client service. He has been instrumental in gaining the firm the newly launched Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme, which is a mark of excellence in the home buying process.

Adam commented,  “ I’ve joined at an exciting time for the firm, with the launch of elderflower which I think meets a real need for those approaching retirement especially.  There are difficult times ahead for high street law firms, with huge legal aid cutbacks and the introduction of ‘Tesco Law’ – but I’m looking forward to the challenge and I think that Huddersfield has a vibrant business environment.”
