Derby-based law firm, Right Legal Group, has acquired an additional new office space adjacent to their current head office situated at Wyvern Business Park in Derby.

The new 5,000 sq ft office will provide much needed space to support the business as it continues to see exponential growth, and will house the central support services team.

The law firm, which specialises in providing tailor-made wills and probate services for people across the country via their RightWill service, has taken on the new premises to allow further expansion over the next five years – having reached full capacity at their current offices.

The business has been based in Derby since 2014, and the announcement follows an incredibly successful period for the firm, having recruited more than 50 staff in the last year – taking their total head count to 130.

Carrie Caladine, managing director at Right Legal Group, comments: “I am incredibly proud of the team and all we have achieved as a firm in the last few years. We are very passionate about the services that we provide and the work that we do. We are committed to investment and enhancing the experience that clients have with us.

“Every time we help a client to preserve their inheritance is a real achievement for us. We discuss internally that our reason for getting out of bed every day is to give our clients a voice and make sure that voice is heard when they are no longer here – it really is our passion.

“In addition to our work, the number of people that have joined us at the start of their career and gone on to qualify as solicitors, run departments and excel at their professional goals is always a huge highlight for us.

“We are delighted to expand our head offices further in Derby, we provide services across the country via our branch offices and partner network so accessibility is key and Derby is perfectly positioned. We are very proud to be part of such a supportive business community here, and are committed to supporting talent and investment in the local area as we continue to train and recruit.”

Bolstering their commitment to the local community, the business has reengaged their ‘Law on Tour’ campaign post Covid lockdowns, where legal professionals speak within the local communities – giving free advice to community groups, advising individuals and families how to best protect their legacy.

The announcement follows an impressive range of accolades recently awarded to the firm, including being coined ‘one to watch’ on the ‘best companies’ list in 2021*, whilst being highly commended at the Wills and Probates Awards in 2021 for the category ‘Solicitor Firm of the Year’.
