Freeths Open Office In Liverpool

Freeths are pleased to announce the launch of a 12th office in Liverpool's prestigious 20 Chapel Street building.


The office, which will in time offer a full range of legal services, will initially have two partners and support staff based in the city with the aim of recruiting more staff over the coming months. The strong network of Freeths' other UK offices will also provide support to the new location. Andy Nichol and Luke Hopkins both join Freeths from DWF LLP and are well established in the Liverpool business community.

Andy will be Managing Partner of the new office and was previously Executive Partner for DWF's Liverpool office, heading up their property team. He acts for institutional and private investors, dealing with the acquisition, management and disposal of commercial property assets and has over 15 years' experience in property finance, having worked on behalf of most main lending banks. Luke is a real estate partner with over 12 years' experience. He has acted for UK and international investors, with a particular focus on the acquisition, management, development and disposal of retail and office assets. Luke previously headed up the property finance team at DWF's Liverpool office.

Freeths commented: "This is an exciting venture for us to expand further in the north-west. The office location is great and we are pleased to join other businesses such as Ernst & Young, Barclays and Liverpool Football Club in the grade A space. Both Andy and Luke are well known in their sectors - we look forward to them being part of our team and helping to grow our presence in the region."
