Moving forward with a rich heritage
Bethany Bush, Personal Assistant at Andrew Macbeth Cash & Co Solicitors in Wirksworth, takes a look at the practice’s long tradition and its vision for the future
Andrew Macbeth Cash & Co Solicitors has been part of Wirksworth market town’s heritage for over 140 years. As you would expect of a legal practice with such a long and illustrious history, they have acted for generations of the same families across the region.
The friendly and supportive attitude that was the hallmark of the practice when it first opened remains as important today as it was then. Great pride is taken in developing long-term relationships with clients, providing genuine and professional advice on both personal and business matters.
When the practices of Andrew Macbeth Cash and Co. Solicitors, Potter and Co. Solicitors and Lovedays Solicitors all joined forces under the banner of Derbyshire Legal Services Limited just over a year ago, it was of paramount importance to the directors, Richard Roberts and Christopher Gale, that the separate identities of each practice remained intact. It was also equally crucial that each firm would also benefit from the additional expertise, infrastructure and technology subsequently available.
“At Andrew Macbeth Cash & Co, we have continued to handle the private and business affairs of many families and businesses for generations,” said Richard. “This is testament to our truly exceptional team of solicitors, legal executives and legal assistants who focus on developing strong and supportive relationships with each client”.
“We are a traditional law firm but one with a very modern and dynamic approach utilising the latest digital technology to deliver unbeatable levels of service to our clients at a fair and totally transparent cost.
“We are constantly evolving, innovating and introducing new and efficient ways of working. Our dynamic growth is all down to a fantastic team of highly-experienced legal experts with niche specialisms, allied to a strong recruitment and training of the very best young legal talent to work with our truly impressive client list. Great clients demand great expertise, and that’s what we aim to provide.”
Richard strongly believes that it is important for the people of Wirksworth to know that Andrew Macbeth Cash & Co is here for the long term. “The town has already faced the closure of the two banks on the high street,” said Richard, who is based at the Wirksworth office. “And this has naturally had a detrimental effect on the local community. “It is vital, therefore, that we continue to invest in the firm to ensure that the town continues to have access to highly-professional legal services. Andrew Macbeth Cash & Co now boasts 6 full-time members of staff as well as 5 part-time. Many of the staff are local and have been trained from leaving school; others have joined the practice, either straight from university or from another practice because they see the potential for progressing in such a dynamic, forward-thinking and customer-focussed legal environment.
Recent new appointments include Denise Graham and Hayley Kirkland, who have joined the Residential Conveyancing team, along with Stacy Plant who deals with Wills and Probate.
