Birmingham law firm expands city presence

Tricorn House

Birmingham law firm DAC Beachcroft has significantly expanded its presence in the city following growing demand for its services.

Last year, the firm merged its twin operations in the city into a single site at Tricorn House, Five Ways.

The firm has now increased this footprint by adding an additional 60 seats over three complete floors of the building.

Paul Leighton, re-elected as Regional Senior Partner for a second term, said: “This is an exciting time for us as we settle into our new office at Tricorn House. Our expansion here is a real boost of confidence by the business in the Birmingham office as we continue to focus on growing our business and attracting new clients.

“I am immensely proud of all the efforts of DAC Beachcroft staff during the office move as well as their continuing dedication to our local community. I am delighted to be continuing my role as RSP and look forward to guiding our Birmingham office into its next phase.”

Mr Leighton, who specialises in construction or property damage claims and recoveries for insurers and major corporations, will continue in the management role until 2020.

DAC Beachcroft Senior Partner, Virginia Clegg, added: “I am very pleased that Paul is to continue in his role as RSP of our Birmingham office. He was instrumental in ensuring a smooth transition for our staff into new premises and I have every confidence that, under his stewardship, the office will continue to go from strength to strength over the next three years.”
