Lucas and Wyllys solicitors returned to its former-home on Queen Street in Great Yarmouth, which up until 2011 had been the firm’s base for nearly 120 years.

Sophie Mckinna, a UK champion shot-putter from Great Yarmouth, joined the Lucas and Wyllys team at the grand reopening of the office to celebrate the home coming.

The firm has been offering legal advice in Great Yarmouth for more than 150 years, incorporating the Queen Street based company Burton Moore and Crawshaw in 1956.

In 2011 the team moved from their original office to South Quay in Yarmouth, to allow the century old building to undergo renovations.

Amy Church, a partner at the firm, said: “The team have worked so hard over the last few months getting ready for the move. We are over the moon to be based in such a beautiful building.”
