Keystone Law has opened a new hub in the city centre of Manchester to support its growing practice in the region.

Keystone’s new Manchester base brings with it an ideal environment for partners and other lawyers to collaborate with colleagues and meet with clients.

This latest development has been driven by a surge of new lawyers in the North West of England keen to take advantage of Keystone’s innovative business model and the unparalleled level of flexibility and autonomy they will experience.

The firm recently welcomed new partner Andrea James to its North West team. Andrea, a noted expert in professional discipline and healthcare regulatory law, has defended professionals at fitness-to-practise proceedings before their regulatory bodies, and also represented many student professionals in university fitness-to-practise investigations and qualified professionals in local-level processes, including MHPS and ICB/performers list proceedings.

The launch of this Manchester hub follows a strong period of growth which saw the firm announce a revenue increase of 8.1% to £75.3 million and over 30 new partners joined the firm over the last year, taking the total number of fee earners to 507. Keystone’s strong financial position and steady number of new recruits will be bolstered by the firm’s expansion in the North West.

CEO of Keystone Law, James Knight, said:

“At Keystone we seek to support our fee earners with all the tools and facilities they need to provide an outstanding level of service to our valued clients. This new Manchester office will help our growing team of lawyers in the area to collaborate more effectively whilst raising awareness as to broad service offerings we now have.”
