We have a strategy of investing in high calibre expertise and developing specialist practice areas such as Pensions and Financial Services, which are unusual for law firms outside London.
“This expertise combined with our single location enables us to offer cohesive best value advice which has found favour with our clients both locally but also nationally and internationally.”
