Medical negligence and personal injury specialist, Fletchers Group, is expanding with a new office in Leeds.

The firm, which is based in Manchester and Southport, aims to increase its presence across the North of England

It said the move will strengthen its market reach and will help the firm tap into new talent across Yorkshire and the North East .

The new base sits in the heart of the city’s central business district, in the recently renovated Northspring building on Wellington Street, and will house the Minton Morrill team, specialists in medical negligence and private client, which Fletchers acquired in 2022.

The office features a range of modern facilities spread across almost 3,500 sq ft, including a state-of-the-art communal workspace, rooftop garden, gym, cycle store and podcast studio.

Fletchers Group employs more than 500 people. With ambitious expansion plans over the next three years, 2023 will see the firm increase its regional presence with further office openings planned, including Liverpool in the spring.

Peter Haden, Fletchers Group CEO, said: “Opening an office in Leeds, one of the fastest growing business and financial hubs in the UK, was the next natural step for the group, particularly after the acquisition of Minton Morrill.

“Leeds is an exciting and vibrant city, and our new base will allow us to expand our team, attract top talent, better serve our clients, and build lasting partnerships with key stakeholders across the region.”

He added: “We really wanted to create a great work environment that will enhance productivity and employee wellbeing and Northspring has it all. We’re so excited with the opportunities we are already creating in Leeds, and look forward to welcoming clients, partners and colleagues to our fantastic new home.”
