Farleys’ managing partner Ian Liddle said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Farleys and will unlock many opportunities for our already successful team to grow and develop. 

“Our ethos remains the same – legal expertise with a down to earth approach, and we have already invested in a number of key appointments and practice areas over recent months which is indicative of our commitment to increasing and strengthening our existing teams.

“With the support of Lawfront we will continue to build upon and enhance the service that we offer to our clients, whilst also looking at opportunities to grow by way of acquisition.”
