A midlands based business advice firm has chosen Worcester as the location of its newest branch.

Leonard Curtis Business Solutions, who provide financial and legal advice to small and medium sized businesses, are opening the branch on Foregate Street.

The branch will be headed up by Worcester native Joph Young and the move to Worcester is being supported by Leonard Curtis' Midlands director Conrad Beighton.

He said: "Worcestershire is one of the top places in the UK for the number of new business start-ups. Almost 8000 companies were set up across the county last year – 15.9 per cent up on 2017 and this year it looks set for even greater start up success.

"The opening of our Worcester office further strengthens our geographical reach in the Midlands, making us even better placed to provide the levels of local support that our clients require here.”

The Worcester branch is the latest addition to the firm's 17 current branches across the Midlands, including branches in Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
