Bevan Brittan passes 100 colleagues in Leeds with latest senior hire

National law firm Bevan Brittan’s newest senior hire in Leeds has helped the business chalk up a milestone – more than 100 colleagues based in the city.

The latest arrival is legal director and subsidy control and public procurement specialist, Helen Feinson.

Her addition to the business’s Toronto Square-based team comes a few months after it celebrated its eight-year anniversary in Leeds.

Bevan Brittan launched in the city in September 2015 with just 10 colleagues. It has since expanded to the point where the team now numbers 110, including 14 partners.

Now, the firm’s lead partner in Yorkshire has forecast further expansion in the near future after welcoming Feinson. 

Lyndon Campbell, head of the Leeds office, said: “This is a real milestone for us and is testament to the fantastic team we have built here in a relatively short space of time.

“We are pleased Helen has helped us pass 100 colleagues in Leeds, but she most definitely will not be the last as we continue to grow our team and client base.

“We are winning more work all the time and these are exciting times for everyone at Bevan Brittan in Leeds.”

Feinson has joined as a legal director from her previous role at Hill Dickinson and brings more than a decade of experience of advising private and public sector bodies, including a large number of NHS trusts, local authorities, and universities, on a wide range of subsidy control, State aid, and procurement law compliance matters.

She adds her expertise to a Leeds team which now supports more than 400 clients including property owners, developers, investors, universities, landlords, tenants, construction companies and local government organisations.

It also advises housing associations, NHS Trusts, healthcare providers and corporate clients.
