Law firm Bevan Brittan has reached a five-year milestone in Leeds, having opened its Toronto Square office in the city back in September 2015.
The office originally opened with just eight lawyers but has significantly expanded to now have 13 partners and a total of 55 staff.
During this time, the firm has also doubled the size of its office space in Toronto Square to allow for future expansion, signing a new ten-year lease in 2018.
“We are delighted and proud to have been part of the Leeds business community for five years. It seems like only yesterday that a small team of us were settling into the office in 2015,” said Michael Boyd, Head of the Leeds Office at Bevan Brittan.
“The office has won and developed a great list of clients across Leeds, the Yorkshire region and nationally. Through them, we have been involved in complex and high profile instructions across the public and private sectors.
“This is a vibrant and resilient region and, despite the challenges of COVID-19, we look forward to continuing to work with our clients and helping them achieve their objectives. We expect the growth we have achieved over the last 5 years to continue.”
Duncan Weir, Managing Partner at Bevan Brittan, added: “Opening our Leeds office was a key strategic objective within Bevan Brittan’s business plan.
“It has been an investment that has certainly proven its value, enabling us to advise and support a whole range of clients across Yorkshire and beyond and we will continue to invest in our people, services and systems in Leeds as we continue to grow the number of clients in the region.”
