On 10 April 2000 Ian Greenhalgh started the practice of Greenhalghs Solicitors with a clear mission to provide a dedicated and specialised legal service to the leasing and finance industry.

The firm attracted an increasing number of clients, driven exclusively by word-of-mouth recommendations. Clients were drawn by Ian’s approachability, the results produced and by the firm’s innovative ways of working. By 2004 it was necessary to relocate to larger offices and later that year Ian was joined by Richard Kerr who subsequently became a partner in 2006.

Several years of rapid growth and a huge investment in people and systems, including the recruitment of senior litigation solicitors and specialist insolvency staff has enabled the firm to offer additional specialist services to an ever increasing client base. It has also brought the firm an increased profile and recognition within it’s niche field. In 2010 the practice was recommended by the Legal 500 for debt recovery work.

In 2011 the practice once again moved into larger premises providing excellent facilities for clients, a great working environment and the ability for the firm to continue it’s ambitious expansion plans. In addition, in a move that was long overdue, the practice was renamed Greenhalgh Kerr.
