A LEADING Wiltshire law firm is heading into the new year with a host of new colleagues, after a major recruitment drive.

When you combine such a rich vein of talent with our partner-led, strategic planning there can be no doubt that Goughs will continue to go from strength to strength in the years ahead”.
