Celebrating over 150 years of legal excellence

Date online: 10/10/2013

When the founders of Molesworths first opened their legal practice over 150 years ago, Rochdale was a wealthy and thriving boomtown of the Industrial Revolution.

Molesworths Bright Clegg, as the law firm is known today, shares a long and proud history with the people of Rochdale.

“We are extremely proud of our heritage and long standing service to the Rochdale community,” said Peter Rhodes, a senior partner at the firm.

“We have provided a constant source of trusted legal expertise, serving generation after generation over the years.”

Located in impressive offices at Octagon House, near Rochdale Exchange Shopping Centre, Molesworths have expanded to become one of Rochdale’s largest legal firms.

Well known throughout the North West, they have earned an enviable reputation, synonymous with the provision of high quality legal services.

“There is a reason we have been around for so long,” says Mr Rhodes.

“Our clients are well looked after and they constantly return to us and regularly recommend us.

“We provide strong, decisive yet caring legal support and so are highly regarded and trusted by clients.

“Through our history we enjoy a long standing reputation for quality service, dedication and invaluable experience.”

The firm’s five partners and ten department-strong-team share a wide spectrum of legal expertise and are as keen as ever to serve the current and emerging needs of Rochdale people in both their personal and business legal matters.

“We are a professional yet highly approachable firm, offering well reasoned advice in all areas of the law and to a variety of clients, from multi-national plcs to private individuals.

“We have specialist expertise in areas of growing demand such as employment law, powers of attorney, equity release and land-lord and tenant law,” said Mr Rhodes.

Success in the Courtroom

Partners and solicitors at Molesworths have an excellent track record of success. The firm attracts many high profile clients both locally and nationally. Molesworths’ legal team have fought long and hard to secure many six figure settlements for clients, including dam-ages and compensation as a result of personal injury, asbestos related industrial disease and clinical negligence.

Recent landmark cases include a high profile victory for partner Paul Dixon at the European Court of Justice following a six year battle to defend a pub landlady for showing Premier League football matches using a Greek satellite decoder.

Community Engagement

The firm’s partners also place a high priority on community engagement and actively participate in the wider Rochdale community. Kitsa Efthymiadis is a governor of Rochdale Sixth Form College and also sits on the Rochdale Council of the Chamber of Commerce. Peter Rhodes sits on the board of Hopwood Hall College and is a member of St Michael’s Parish Council and Gordon Haigh is on the board of the famous Black Dyke Band.

Molesworths offer no win no fee, fixed fees, seek funding for legal aid, where possible, and will negotiate excellent rates.

“We strive to continue to build upon our tradition of excellence. Our staff are highly responsive to client concerns and work hard to meet and exceed client expectations,” says Mr Rhodes.
