Manchester-based Just Costs, the largest Solicitor’s practice in the UK specialising in costs, is to continue its expansion with the opening of a new office in Leeds.
The new office will be based at No 1 Leeds, 26 Whitehall Road – a new grade A building in a popular location on the western edge of the city centre. Just Costs has taken an initial 315 sq ft of office space.
Commenting on the firm’s expansion into Leeds, Managing Director Paul Shenton said.
“We are delighted to continue our expansion with the opening of a new office in Leeds. We already have a strong client base in Yorkshire and their feedback has been very positive. We will be looking to grow the office quickly.”
Added Mark Hartigan, Client Services Director at Just Costs Solicitors:
“Leeds will be our fourth UK office. We are building the business on a national level and continuing to recruit at all levels. The costs market is buoyant at present and having recently agreed a funding package with NatWest we are well placed to drive the firm forward.”
