Clydes hires three disputes partners for Bristol launch
Clyde & Co has brought in three new partners from different firms to launch a new office in Bristol. This launch marks Clydes’ tenth UK branch, furthering its established presence in the country.
The three launching partners are professional indemnity litigator Ian Peacock from Womble Bond Dickinson, London head of professional indemnity at Kennedys John Eastlake, and construction disputes partner Peter O’Brien, formerly of Clarke Willmott.
The launching of a branch in Bristol is a return to UK growth for Clydes, after having announced in February that it would be opening an office in Hamburg, and especially after a year of western expansion in 2017, which saw the launches of offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Mexico City.
