A LEGAL firm that has served Belper for years has opened up an office in the town.

The base of Ellis-Fermor and Negus is at 7 Bridge Street.

The firm has three other offices at Ripley, Long Eaton and Beeston.

A spokeswoman said: “Since opening our first office in Ripley back in 1893 we have expanded across the East Midlands and our move into Belper following the recent tough economic times is an indication of our desire to grow the firm.

“We have served individual clients and businesses in the Belper area for many years, so we are now pleased to be able to offer our legal services far more conveniently, and to make our contribution to the prosperity of the town.”
