MLP Law increase North West presence with new office in Liverpool
MLP Law has increased its regional presence in the North West by opening a new office location in Liverpool. “It was the right time to do so”, said the managing director, Stephen Attree.
The firm currently operates out of MediaCity, Salford, with headquarters in Altrincham. Having had a very positive response to the opening of their Penny Lane office, it is anticipated that over the next 12 months MLP Law’s expansion looks set to create jobs in Liverpool.
Managing director Stephen Attree said:
“We came to Liverpool for two main reasons. It’s a city on the up and a location which is thriving at the moment, and there’s also a substantial amount of inward investment going into the city.
“We’ve been thinking about expanding into Liverpool for about six to 12 months. We decided to go ahead and do it now that there is some confidence returning to the economy. As confidence returns, it just feels like the right time.”
Currently staffed by two members of the MLP Law team, the office sees occasional work that brings in members of the Altrincham team.
“We are hoping to create jobs. The plan is grow a permanent workforce in Liverpool.
“The first thing we need to do is replicate what we’ve done in Altrincham and MediaCity, which is get to mid-market clients, business owners and business people.
“As we develop that, both the private and commercial sides of the firm will grow. We are targeting to employ at least four staff in the next 12 months.”
Heading up the Liverpool office is Lesley Gill, director and head of wills, trust and probate for MLP Law, who said:
“We are experiencing an important period of growth and this move will help us strengthen our offering as a specialist commercial law firm to businesses across the region.
“Liverpool is a thriving location for businesses and this is why we chose to open our new office here.
“Through widening our geographic accessibility to our clients we are even better placed to provide them with jargon-free, solution-driven legal insight and advice for both their business and their personal affairs, in order to help them map out their plans for the future.”
