The Borough offers a wide contrast between open farmland and small picturesque villages together with the larger vibrant market towns of Burscough and Ormskirk.
Our largest town Skelmersdale is a hive of urban activity, combining thriving business districts, central and local shopping centres with plenty of green spaces and surrounding woodlands.

We are looking to recruit an experienced and proactive property solicitor to deal with complex land and property transactions, commercial leases, landlord and tenant matters, development agreements, contracts and procurement matters and regeneration projects.
