Expanding law firm on the move

A Belfast law firm has opened new premises in the city centre.

Worthingtons, established in 2003, already has offices based in Newtownards and Bangor.

The new premises on Gordon Street in Belfast officially opened on May 17.

Worthingtons Commercial was initially located in the listed premises on Oxford Street Belfast which had been the Christian Brothers Grammar School.

The firm has grown and now has four partners, two associates, seven solicitors and support staff. It provides a wide range of legal services, specialising in commercial and employment law.

Comedian Tim McGarry made a guest appearance at the opening, where he reminisced about personal experiences of his time as a solicitor in Belfast.

The firm was established by Huw Worthington and Nikki McConnell in Newtownards in 2003.

Huw Worthington said: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal clients for their support throughout the years. We look forward to continuing to work with you all in 2012 and beyond.

Celia Worthington said: "We are delighted to have found these spacious premises in the lively Cathedral quarter."
