TWO law firms have joined forces.

Waddington Turner Wall (WTW) in Keighley and Foster Law, based at the Broughton Hall estate near Skipton, have merged.

Foster Law was founded nearly ten years ago by Diane and Robert Foster.

It principally offers company, agricultural, property and private client legal services.

The team will continue in its present roles at Broughton.

WTW was formed through a merger in 2014 of Waddingtons and Turner & Wall, which has proved a huge success – with a growth in the workforce and a move to larger offices in Devonshire Street. It specialises in areas including litigation, and equine and family law.

Director, Michael Bower, said: “This is a really positive and exciting step for both businesses, enabling us to offer a more comprehensive range of legal services across the Aire Valley and the Yorkshire/Lancashire border.”

Both businesses will continue under their existing names.
