Excello Law, a national commercial law firm with offices in London and Liverpool, has decided to extend its practice presence to Yorkshire, establishing its first office in the region in Leeds.
“We’re committed to growing further in the region,” says George
Bisnought, founder of Excello Law which recently opened its first international office in Sweden.
The new office was opened in Leeds city centre and will be headed by Andrew Hoyle, a corporate and commercial solicitor who has previously worked with law firms Ward Hadaway and Watson Burton at senior level.
“Leeds is a centre of commercial and legal excellence, where we already have a number of existing clients and solicitors. It is the right time for us to cement our position in this vibrant market,” adds Bisnought who is also managing director of the law firm.
London-based national law firm, Excello Law has opened its Yorkshire office in Leeds in its expansion programme.
The Leeds office has also been buoyed by a stellar of legal minds, such as Philip O’Loughlin, a property litigation specialist who has more than 20 years of practice in Leeds. Prior to joining the Excello Law Leeds team, O’Loughlin was a partner at HLW Keeble Hawson. Before that, he was at Addleshaw Goddard where he was national head
of property litigation.
Through O’Loughlin, Excello Law will benefit a number of high-profile clients such as Leeds-based property investment firm Rushbond and the property developer Westcourt Property Investment Group.
Excello Law opened in July 2009, attracting partner-level lawyers from firms such as Allen & Overy, Baker & McKenzie, Freshfields, Linklaters, Mayer Brown and Norton Rose Fulbright.
