The Bridgnorth branch of a Mortimers solicitors is being bolstered by the arrival of one of the firm’s senior partners.

Karen Brake has been heading the family department at Ludlow office of Mortimers for more than 10 years but is now moving to the firm’s Whitburn Street base.

Mrs Brake said today that she was sad to be leaving Ludlow but was at the same time greatly looking forward to working in Bridgnorth, a town she knows well, where she will be providing both private client and legal aid services.

“It was always likely that I would move to Bridgnorth at some point but I wasn’t sure when,” said Miss Brake.

“After the Bridgnorth office secured the contract to supply publicly funded work, and Ludlow unfortunately didn’t, my decision was made much easier.

“I am now just looking forward to serving the people of Bridgnorth and surrounding area, as well as retain the strong links I have built up in Ludlow after so many years working there.”

Karen Brake can now be contacted on 01746 761000.
