Office transformation follows legal merger.

A BRIGHOUSE businesses is undergoing an extensive transformation following its merger with a leading law firm. Bearders Solicitors, which was first established in the 1920s, has begun a comprehensive refurbishment of its King Street offices following a recent partnership with Wilkinson Woodward, which also has offices in Huddersfield and Halifax. The work includes a new shop front as well as remodelling and refurbishing the reception area and office space. The shop front was replaced over the Christmas period and new signage will be installed later this month. The office will remain open for business throughout the refurbishment. Richard Smithies of Wilkinson Woodward Bearders at Brighouse, said: "Bearders has been providing legal services to communities across Calderdale for almost a century. As Wilkinson Woodward Bearders, we're looking forward to providing a more modern and welcoming environment for both new and existing clients."

Bearders was first established in 1920 by Harold Bearder. In 1946, he was joined by his son, local philanthropic solicitor John Alfred Bearder and in 1977, Richard Smithies opened Bearders' office in King Street.

The Brighouse premises are home to the Bearder Charity, set up by John Bearder to benefit the people of Calderdale. The charity awards grants totalling about PS120,000 every year to both individual and community projects across the Calder Valley.

From its Brighouse offices, Wilkinson Woodward Bearders provides a full range of legal services, including conveyancing, commercial law, wills and probate, as well as family advice and mediation.
