Kirkham Conveyancing Services Limited was established in April 2009, trading as Kirkham Conveyancing. At that time, the Company specialised purely in domestic conveyancing. Subsequently, the Company evolved into Kirkham Legal when it also started to offer Private Client services, such as Wills, Probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney. Today the Company continues to specialise in all types of domestic conveyancing and Private Client work.
The Company was founded by Bob Bouch and Kathryn Doogue, after they both left Pearson Hinchliffe Solicitors in Oldham, where they had worked for a number of years; Bob as a Partner and the Head of the Domestic Conveyancing Department, and Kathryn as an Assistant Solicitor in the same department, having progressed through the ranks after starting her career there as a trainee solicitor. Intent on providing an extremely specialised conveyancing service both in their local area and further afield, Bob and Kathryn converted from being Solicitors to Licensed Conveyancers, which apart from confirming their status as property specialists also provided a great opportunity to act for both the seller and the buyer in the same transaction, an attractive proposition for both private and estate agent clients.
In 2017, Edwina Ashworth, who is a Chartered Legal Executive and who had worked with both Bob and Kathryn for a number of years, became a Director of the company, with Bob becoming a Consultant, continuing to service the needs of his many clients and connections, and also taking on an ambassadorial role as Business Development Manager. In the same year, Daniel Prince joined the firm as a Private Client Solicitor and Legal and Business Affairs Consultant, bringing his many years of both legal and management experience to the Company. Daniel qualified as a Solicitor in 1991 and spent his entire career at Pearson Solicitors, through its’ various incarnations becoming the Head of both the Family and Private Client Departments, before deciding to leave, and ultimately reunite with Bob, Kathryn and Edwina, whom he had all worked with previously. He also joins Dawn Hilditch in the Company, a Consultant Solicitor of over 20 years conveyancing experience with serval leading local law firms, and who came on board in 2016, to expand and strengthen the team.
The Company has throughout its’ existence enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Kirkham Property Estate Agents and its’ many customers, but as an entirely independent company, Kirkham Legal is ready, willing and able to provide its conveyancing services to any estate agents, financial advisors or private clients, plus of course its’ ever-expanding Private Client offering of Wills, Probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
