Gawthrop Greenwood, PC celebrated the relocation of its Greater Wilmington law office, with a ribbon cutting ceremony overseen by the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, May 17, 2018.

Now located at 3711 Kennett Pike in Greenville, Gawthrop Greenwood moved its office less than a quarter of a mile from its previous location in Greenville to accommodate growth, while remaining at the heart of the business district at routes 52 and 141, as covered by the Delaware Business Times.

“It was important to us to remain within this business district, ideally situated within minutes of the courts in downtown Wilmington, but also providing easy access for suburban businesses and area residents,” says Mary Ann Plankinton, a partner at Gawthrop Greenwood, PC and chair of the firm’s Greenville office. “This location is also attractive to a talented and qualified workforce. New attorneys want to live and work in this wonderful area.”

Gawthrop Greenwood, which is headquartered in West Chester, PA, first opened an office in Greenville in 2013 to meet client demand in the New Castle County area. The firm selected and hired Delaware attorneys to serve the community and local businesses.

Now located at 3711 Kennett Pike in Greenville, Gawthrop Greenwood moved its Greater Wilmington office less than a quarter of a mile from its previous location to accommodate growth, while remaining at the heart of the business district at routes 52 and 141.

“Some law firms are known to have placed offices in the Greater Wilmington area, but their attorneys have limited local presence there,” says Plankinton. “Our Greenville office attorneys are based here and have deep ties to the surrounding community. It was important to them that the firm open an office where they have long-term relationships with local businesses and residents.”

Today, four of the firm’s 21 attorneys are based at Gawthrop Greenwood’s office in Greenville, with support staff and prospective new attorneys looking to fill the additional office space on the heels of the firm being chosen for Best Places to Work by the Philadelphia Business Journal and Great Places to Work by Main Line Today.

Gawthrop Greenwood has been named to the Delaware Arbitration list and its attorneys are legally trained mediators. The Greenville office’s major areas of practice include Mediation Services, Family Law & Family Law Mediation, Trusts & Estates, Tax Planning, Corporate & Residential Real Estate, as well as Business & Corporate Law.

“This is an exciting time for Gawthrop Greenwood, PC as our Greater Wilmington office undergoes measured and strategic growth, and our West Chester office continues to thrive,” says Sandra L. Knapp, chair of the management committee at Gawthrop Greenwood. “Our clients do business throughout the Brandywine Valley, and we find they appreciate the convenience of having attorneys in Greenville that are licensed in both Delaware and Pennsylvania.”
