Priti visits fast growing local law firm, Holmes & Hills
Priti Patel MP visited the Marks Tey Head Office of fast-growing regional solicitors Holmes & Hills on 18th February 2022. The Witham MP was originally going to open the firm’s A12 Commercial Hub premises, which are on the London Road, Marks Tey, some 18 months ago but the plans were scuppered several times by the pandemic and its restrictions.
The A12 Commercial Hub provides a modern and flexible base for the practice’s expanding Corporate and Commercial, Commercial Property, Planning and Development, and Litigation teams. During her visit, Priti had a tour of the building and met with Holmes & Hills Partner Steven Hopkins, Philip Davies, Partner and Head of Business Development and Sue Hume, the practice’s Finance Manager for an update on how the business has been progressing and its successes in creating new jobs.
Priti said: “Everyone has had a tough time both professionally and personally over the last couple of years but it is very good to hear that this new branch has not only survived the pandemic but has considerably increased and expanded its business. I enjoyed my visit and I wish the practice well in the coming years.”
Steven Hopkins, Partner at Holmes & Hills, Marks Tey, said: “It was a great pleasure to finally have Priti here at our A12 Commercial Hub. We welcomed the opportunity to update her on how we are progressing and the issues we face in the future. Her support and encouragement was much appreciated.”
The visit was arranged with the assistance of Witham Chamber of Commerce.
