Wavertree pub to become solicitors office
BMD:Law has acquired a former pub in the Liverpool suburb of Wavertree for its new office.
The growing legal practice is moving from Picton Road, Wavertree to the Lamb on High Street after acquiring the Grade 2-listed building from Punch Taverns for an undisclosed sum.
Bernadette McDonald, founder and principal solicitor of BMD:Law, established the firm four years ago. She said: "I'm overjoyed to be moving the firm into the building which is not only historically important and impressive in its own right but also has strong emotional ties for me because my parents, grandparents and great grandparents all lived within sight of the Lamb and it was a long-running family joke that we would never move far away.
"We look forward to restoring the building to its former glory and ensuring that its 200-year heritage continues far into the future. I'm honoured to be part of a building that has an illustrious history and magnificent architecture and features inside and out."
Colliers International in Manchester advised Punch Taverns. Ian Walsh, surveyor in the licensed and leisure team at Colliers International in Manchester, said: "Interest in this grand building was strong and we are delighted to have completed a deal with Bernadette. Her enthusiasm and desire to acquire the property made her the clear front runner."
BMD:Law provides advice in commercial litigation, commercial property, employment law, residential conveyancing and residential landlord and tenant issues.
