Raworths LLP

A centre of legal excellence for business and individuals

Most law firms fit into neat boxes, but life isn’t like that. We have both specialist commercial and private client lawyers working together under the same roof to provide the breadth of knowledge and expertise needed to resolve the complexities that life throws at businesses, individuals and families.

A modern approach with traditional values

We are an innovative business constantly looking to improve the way we deliver services to our clients, while retaining the best of traditional values.

Dedicated to Harrogate and North Yorkshire

We are a single centre firm with a depth of local knowledge, having been based in Harrogate for over 125 years. We have no plans to merge or open offices in Leeds or elsewhere and we provide excellent value as a real alternative to city firms.
