Lupton Fawcett LLP
Stamford House


York is a historic walled city in the county of North Yorkshire and has a population of more than 200,000. York has been named ‘the best place to live in Britain’. It is a key hub on the UK’s rail network with connections to all major cities across England and Scotland and is a magnet for tourists due to its historical significance. 

Business Landscape

York is known as one of the most desirable places to live and work in the whole of the UK, so it follows that it is the ideal city in which to have a business.  There are over 8,000 companies with offices in the city and there are consistently low unemployment rates here, which is good news for recruiters. 

Retail, tourism, health and social care and financial and professional services are all big business for York and are among the city’s largest employers. York is also a world leader when it comes to industrial biotech and agri-food research.

Seven million visitors flock to York each year to take in the sights and tourism alone is worth more than £6 million per year to the local economy. York holds UNESCO Creative City of Medial Arts status, which has helped to develop the creative industries. Creative and digital media businesses are now forecast to be one of the major growth areas for York’s economy, along with bioscience, finance, and high-value rail. 

Inward investment to attract new business to York is ongoing with the most demand found in the health, social care and retail sectors, helping to grow the local economy year on year. 

Culture and Social Scene

The historical city of York welcomes millions of visitors every year. The historic sites of York Minster and York Dungeon are just two significant points of interest that perfectly showcase the magnificent history in which York is steeped. 

The city’s jam-packed calendar includes everything from musical performances, comedy nights, festivals, exhibitions and major events such as York Races and the enchanting St Nicholas Fair every Christmas. 

There are also museums, galleries, theatres and gardens galore as well as a diverse shopping experience with designer boutiques, leading high street names and funky independents. 

Amongst York’s cafes, pubs, cocktail bars and restaurants there is something for everyone, while artisan markets offer fresh local produce to tempt visitors and locals alike.

With new businesses continually being attracted to York, corporate law is a key part of the legal landscape.

Our specialist property lawyers also represent numerous clients on a range of issues including private client, conveyancing, property development and planning and property disputes.
