“The raft of new appointments are very welcome during a period of high growth for Brown Turner Ross. They will enable us to meet the needs of our ever growing client list and continue to expand and develop in areas where the firm is in high demand.

“We are also very excited with our Liverpool City Centre relocation, 100 Old Hall Street is in the heart of the commercial district, a location that will allow us the perfect opportunity to better serve the needs of our growing list of clients.”
