WHN is playing a key role helping businesses grow in Blackburn

Blackburn and the surrounding East Lancashire area has always been a hot-bed of entrepreneurial activity. From the late great Jack Walker to modern day successes such as Matt Riley, there is no shortage of high profile success stories from this region.

While the owner-managed business community may not share the same limelight, at Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall we believe this unique breed of businesses is crucial to the future success of our region.

Today, as the economy picks up, our commercial team is working with a number of exciting existing and new businesses that we believe will fly the flag for the region’s economy.

A key driver to our merger 12 months ago was to offer a greater range of services to our clients across the region. That means owner managed businesses in Blackburn and the surrounding area have access to top quality specialist corporate and commercial lawyers on their doorstep.

Being in the heart of the Blackburn, we are able to forge close relationships with business owners and directors, helping us work in partnership with our clients to deliver commercial results.

What makes Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall unique is our in-depth knowledge of the owner-managed businesses and the issues they face.

It’s been a tough five years for everyone in business but we get the sense businesses are starting to look more long term and release the shackles to business growth. That’s not to say there are still challenges. But with the right business support, we believe 2014 will be a progressive year for business across the region.
