Louise Morley
Business Manager


I have many years of experience in both the legal and medical sectors, always with emphasis on excellent customer care.

I started my career as an office junior in Gordons Wright & Wright Solicitors (later, just "Gordons") in Bradford in 1997 and then progressed to become Legal secretary to Chris Atkinson. He was at that time the head of the Conveyancing department there, as well as being a Notary Public.

I have completed Ilex legal and RSA I and II certifications.

Working with Chris I became a "Paralegal" with my own client caseload dealing with Conveyancing transactions. I also learned about the Notarial Profession and became an Assistant to Chris in his capacity as a Notary.

In 2008 I began work as a medical secretary for Bupa Health & Wellbeing in Leeds for 4 years where I gained new skills in the medical sector.

I left Bupa in January 2013 to take up my new challenge as the Business Manager for AtkinsonNotary Limited.

My task (and my pleasure) is to focus on service, accuracy and speed of a response to your requirements.
