Firm Details 

The traditions and values, which first established Russell & Russell as an early pioneer of legal services continues to serve us well today. We still provide friendly, professional advice in the manner a traditional high street law firm would, but this is now blended with a 21st Century approach.

The practice has grown organically to incorporate nine offices stretching across the North West; three in Bolton and one in Atherton, Bury, Chester, Farnworth, Horwich and Middleton. Although we pride ourselves on being a regional firm, a number of our departments service clients throughout England and Wales.
