About Us

Founded in 1897 by Adam Fletcher Greenhalgh, the law practice has grown from its humble beginnings in Wood Street, Bolton, to become one of the areas most highly respected and successful firms.

The history of AFG LAW in Bolton and Bury

For over 120 years the firm has seen many changes including its relocation, initially to Acresfield Mall and finally to its present day location in Mawdsley Street in 1947. That year marked another milestone for AFG LAW when the founder’s son, Stephen Adam Greenhalgh, joined the firm. We also opened our office on Market Street, Bury in 2013.

The success of AFG LAW can be attributed to the quality of services it provides. The firm currently has seven directors, each with a wealth of expertise in their own field, 20 fee earners and many legal clerks and highly trained and experienced support staff.

Michael Morgan, who is now a consultant with the firm after being a partner for over 20 years, has many years of experience in the law and practice of public rights of way and is also a member of the Academy of Experts for Rights of Way.

Greg French and Anita Boardman became AFG LAW’s Managing Directors in June 2016.

Former MD Isobel Gray was with AFG LAW for 30 years, read more here.
