The firm, which launched in 2007, and has seven branches across North Yorkshire, has enlisted Michelle Bennison to help run the new office and manage administration and reception.
Well known for sponsoring and supporting local events, Coles puts its success down to offering a local and personal service.
Michelle, formerly of Ian Cowie Solicitors, said: “It’s exciting to be part of a milestone in a well-established North Yorkshire law firm and I’m really looking forward to the company’s future.”
Managing director, Peter Gibson, said: “Having grown up in East Cleveland, it has been an ambition of mine to provide legal services to the community in which I feel the most affinity.
“With our comprehensive team of legal experts, we can serve the needs of our clients in our brand new office and offer them a more local service. I am thrilled to be bringing Coles home!”
Moving forward the company is looking into more expansion possibilities and has agreed to take an office at Hornbeam Park in Harrogate, which will be used primarily for consulting.
Although Coles Solicitors has been trading in its current form for six years, the Coles brand name has been in existence within the legal sector since 1965.
The group, which has offices in Northallerton, York, Thirsk, Settle, Yarm and now Guisborough, has grown largely through acquisition and can trace its roots back over 200 years.
