Changes have been announced for the Portadown firm of John P Hagan Solicitors, heralding a new era in the company’s 41-year history.

The firm will become known as JPH Law and will work closely with Campbell & Grant and Donnelly Neary & Donnelly solicitors to provide an extended portfolio of products, services and expertise across four offices in counties Down and Armagh.

The new JPH Law team will consist of 10 experienced lawyers specialising in a range of areas including solicitor advocates, mediators and notary public services.

According to the firm, this will improve the quality of legal advice on offer to clients and will continue the ethos of delivering a high standard of client servicing across Northern Ireland.

The firm’s new era will also feature a role change for Sean Hagan, principal of John P Hagan. Sean will continue to work with the firm as a consultant and his brother Brendan will join the new team at JPH Law.

Sean said, “These are exciting times and I am delighted to be a part of the new era that is JPH Law. After 41 years at the helm, I am confident to hand over the development and growth of the firm to a group of very talented and experienced solicitors.

“We are a group of legal professionals who believe in providing sound judgement, in-depth knowledge and new solutions through genuine client partnership. I have no doubt that new and existing clients will benefit greatly from the extensive range of products and services on offer and I look forward to working with the team at JPH Law.”

Kate Ervine, director of JPH Law, said, “We want to assure all our clients that we will continue to provide all of our usual services at our usual excellent standard but that our new era will mean that we are now in a position to offer an extended portfolio of services, products and expertise across a team of 10 people.

“Furthermore, with the continued support of Sean and Brendan Hagan, clients can feel rest assured they are in very good hands.”
