A FIRM of solicitors has opened its fifth office in Kendal.

Progression Solicitors opened its new office at Bridge Mills last week.

It already has offices in Windermere, Ulverston, Barrow and Grange.

Managing director Anthony Smith said: “We have a number of excellent client relationships in Kendal so to open our next office here felt like a natural step. Kendal is a thriving town and we were waiting for the right opportunity to open. Bridge Mills is an excellent and contemporary space and we are delighted to be joining a strong cohort of other professional services that operate from here.”

The office will accommodate a number of staff including two of its directors Malcolm Glynn and Nicola Wood.
