Shoosmiths opening Leeds office
Shoosmiths is set to launch an office in Leeds after hiring a pair of partners from Gordons.
Simon Robinson and Phil Crowe, a pair of employment partners, will lead the new office for the firm when it opens in the later part of this year. The office will be the firm's eleventh and is being added in pursuit of the firm's desire to capture a greater share of the legal market in the UK. The location of the opening office will position it as a hub in northern UK.
Through hiring and promotions, Shoosmiths added 14 partners to its total headcount in the past year. It has offices in Birmingham, Manchester and London.
