Hoffman Male opens Bristol office

Swindon firm, Hoffman Male is the latest firm to be welcomed to the Bristol legal environment. The firm’s new new office is at the Aztec West Business Centre, Almondsbury.

Yvette Morcombe, a Conveyancing solicitor with over 20 years experience, has become a partner at Hoffman Male and will run the new office. Hoffman Male’s main office will remain at the Windmill Hill Business Park, in Swindon. As well as residential and commercial property, the firm specialises in shared ownership property, new builds, wills, probate and estate administration.

Yvette qualified as a solicitor in 1993 and has worked in residential and commercial property ever since. Yvette has worked with Mary before, when they were both employed by a well-known Swindon firm of solicitors.

During her career, Yvette has also worked as an in-house property lawyer at McLean Homes and been a partner at Mowbray Woodwards, in Bath.

“I was looking for a new challenge and had thought about setting up my own business,” said Yvette, who also specialises in wills and probate. “Then, Mary offered me this opportunity – and I was delighted to accept. I really like the way Hoffman Male cares for its clients and looks after them, and I very much look forward to working with Mary again.”

Mary added: “I was looking for the right person to join the team and to head up our new Bristol office. When I found out that Yvette was interested in becoming a partner, it all fitted into place – and I am delighted to be working with her again.”
