Providing personal and business legal services to people across south Fylde, the new office is at Park Street in the town centre.

Led by Chris Mathews, Vincents’ recently appointed head of Private Client Services, the office will be home to two solicitors, two legal executives and two support staff, providing family legal services – including divorce, child and elderly care matters, wills, probate and lasting powers of attorney and residential conveyancing.

The office will also provide a base for visiting solicitors from across the firm, ensuring clients get access to the full range of legal expertise Vincents offers.

The purchase of the building signals Vincents’ long-term commitment to the town. Refurbishment of the office is already well under way with a new look reception and meeting room, with further internal improvements and modernisation to follow.

Heading back to his familiar stomping ground, following a brief spell at Vincents’ head office in Preston, Chris expects to welcome many of his former clients and new ones.

He said: “I’m pleased to be back in the Fylde and extremely proud to be leading the firm’s first office in Lytham.

“We will be providing a wide range of legal services for the local community and access to top quality professionals with a friendly and welcoming approach.

“I’m pleased I was also able to bring with me an experienced team from my previous firm and we’re all looking forward to welcoming not only clients we know, but also clients new to Vincents.

“We want to be the town’s first choice for legal services.”

As head of Vincent’s private client services department, Chris also aims to increase the range of services particularly for older people.
