Adrian Long, director at Ward Gethin Archer said: “I’m looking forward to heading up our new Downham Market team and helping local residents and businesses with their legal questions and challenges that life brings.

“And of course, becoming actively involved and taking part in the Downham Market community and future events.”

Chris Dewey, Ward Gethin Archer’s managing director, commented: “Being on-hand and available for residents and businesses in Downham Market, so they can access the legal help and support they need when they need it, is something we are really excited about and privileged to be able to do.”
