Office details



Vardags’ Manchester office occupies one of the most prestigious addresses in Manchester’s banking district.

The impressive Ship Canal House was commissioned by the Manchester Ship Canal company to serve as their headquarters, and the building was completed in 1926 after a construction period of two years. It was designed by the Lancastrian architect Harry S Fairhurst.



Emma Gill

The Manchester office is headed up by Emma Gill, described by Legal 500 as ‘ferociously intelligent’, leading a stellar new team of highly talented lawyers. This can be an ideal location for clients based in the north who are in need of Vardags’ bespoke service for high net worth individuals.

The Manchester location offers a fully-fledged family law service, including prenup and postnup agreements, wills, trusts, arbitration, child contact arrangements, domestic violence and divorce.
