Our Offices

Our Manchester city centre office is situated at 53 King Street. King Street is considered one of the most important thoroughfares of Manchester City Centre. The building is of historical value as it is an Edwardian Baroque Grade II listed building. It was designed by architect Charles Heathcote and opened in 1913, and it was granted Grade II listed building status in 1974. Our offices stand on the site of the old Manchester Town Hall.

Over the moon with the service CKE Law provided. Charles did both mine and my sons car accident claim. My cheque came 8 weeks after the crash which I am more than happy with. Did not expect such a fast turn around.

What can I say apart from thank you! I was owed a lot money from someone and thought I would have to write it off! Thanks to Charles I got it all back plus interest. He told me what he was going to do and he did it - it was that simple!
