Ware & Kay, a full service law firm continues to go from strength to strength, providing a high quality and personal service to clients. David, who has been a Director and Head of Commercial Property since 2003, will now head up the firm as part of the strategic plan for the future.

possible. I am very proud of the whole team and what they have achieved particularly in the last eighteen months. We have a fantastic business with a very bright future, driven by skilled, dedicated and professional people. We are in a strong position to continue its growth and I am relishing the opportunity to lead the firm forward and beyond to future opportunities and success.”
