Two lawyers have joined forces to open their own solicitors in Bolton.
RNW Solicitors based in St Mark’s Street has been launched by lawyers Waqas Sabir, 35, and Rehan Waqar, 30.
The firm was officially opened by Mayor of Bolton Cllr Akhtar Zaman and Blackburn with Darwen Mayor Cllr Suleman Khonat, who were joined by 100 invited guests at the offices.
Waqas said: “It is wonderful to be opening our new firm in Bolton.
“We chose Bolton as it is a central location and within easy travel of both Lancashire and the Greater Manchester towns and cities.
“We also worked in the area so we have a lot of local contacts and clients here.
“We would like to thank everyone who attended our official launch and look forward to welcoming people to our offices.”
Waqas lives in Blackburn, whilst Rehan hails from Nelson.
Waqas said: “It is something we had been planning to do for some time and received our authorisation in November last year.
“Opening a new firm requires a lot of patience and commitment.
“The firm will focus on various legal matters, with an emphasis on business and personal immigration and civil and commercial litigation.
“We feel our immigration team is highly experienced and provide assistance to individuals on personal immigration matters such as family and settlement visas, visitor visas and asylum.
“We also provide business immigration service to include sponsor licences, start-up and innovator visas and skilled worker visas. We deal with appeals including administrative and tribunal appeals all the way to Judicial reviews.”
