Sarah Franklin commented; ‘Whilst we didn’t win, it’s so important to be recognised by our local community and it’s fabulous to see so many wonderful, successful businesses in and around Kettering.  I was especially pleased to be nominated in the Employer of the Year category.  The last 18 months have been really tough with staff working from home and it was always important for me to try to keep spirits up and organise activities such as virtual pub quiz’s and escape rooms to keep the team in touch.  It’s so nice to be able to be back in the office now as we continue to build the team spirit and work hard together to give the best service to our clients that we can.’

Sarah Franklin appointed to Project Board

We are delighted to announce that our Principal, Sarah Franklin has been appointed to the Project Board for the Kettering High Street Heritage Action Zone
Historic England has confirmed funding of £1,480,000 for the Kettering High Street Heritage Action Zone, with the four-year project beginning late summer that will restore our historical town centre. The HSHAZ is a Historic England initiative intended to breathe new life into town centres by revitalising old buildings and helping to regenerate a vibrant place for locals, businesses and visitors.
The funding of £1,480,000 supports an anticipated total of £4,354,000, including a contribution to commit £2.4 million from Kettering Borough Council towards the cultural-led regeneration plans.
Sarah said: “I am delighted, as chair of the Kettering Town Centre Partnership, to be the community representative on the Project Board of the HSHAZ. This project is key to the regeneration of Kettering town centre with the aim to push forward recovery and growth, both economic and cultural. Kettering has a rich history and I am looking forward to being part of the team ensuring that the Historic England funding, matched by the Council is put to great use in and around Kettering town centre.”

Isis Legal rebrands as Sarah Franklin Solicitors

We decided to take the opportunity of the Kettering office re-location to also re-brand as ‘Sarah Franklin Solicitors’.

The firm has been known as Isis Legal for 11 years, after having been named after an Egyptian Goddess.  However, despite explaining this at our office and on social media, we have found that we still have to continue to do so on a regular basis and, quite frankly, we’re fed up of having to do so!

Everyone knows that Sarah Franklin is the ‘main man’ and driving force behind the firm so it seemed a sensible time to make the change.

All other aspects of the firm remain the same – and we still promise you plain English, not legal jargon!

Kettering Office Relocation

Our Kettering office has moved!  From the 7th September 2018, the Kettering office will now be at 21 Market Street, Kettering.

The move will enable us to expand our team and grow – and the new offices are fantastic!  You can find us opposite ‘The Yards’ and next door to the Florists.

All contact details will remain the same.
