Champagne flowed as a new business moved into Reigate with the official opening of Newmans Solicitors’ office at 4 Church Street on Wednesday 12th April.
Organised on behalf of the company by Horley-based advertising and promotions agency MAD Ideas, the event was well attended, with guests from other local businesses dropping in to congratulate Newman’s Managing Director Saira Babar and her team on their arrival in town.
Guests of honour included the Mayor of Reigate & Banstead, Cllr David Powell and the MP for Reigate, Crispin Blunt. Speeches from both the Mayor and the town’s MP followed the cutting of the ceremonial red ribbon.
Saira Babar, Managing Director of Newmans Solicitors said: “I am delighted to have opened our brand new branch in Reigate. We couldn’t be in a better position at 4 Church Street. Newmans Solicitors was first established in 1973. Following the retirement of the company’s original owners we purchased the business in 2007. In those days we employed just four people. Now there are 10.”
Saira concluded: “We moved our Horley branch from 10 High Street to 1 High Street which is a much better location for us. In 2009 we opened an office in Mayfair, close to Claridges. This is where we have meeting rooms for our international clients. The 1st March this year marked the 10th anniversary of our ownership of Newmans, and this, together with the opening of our Reigate office, makes 2017 a milestone for our business.”
