Legatus law expands to London
Leeds-based law firm Legatus last week officially launched its expansion into London from St Paul’s Street in the city centre.
The new offices in Bishopsgate herald a large expansion for Legatus. The company itself was fully formed in June, a conglomeration of Principal Rashmi Dubé’s award winning business Liquid Recovery and her 17 year experience in the legal profession.
The two strands of the company are aimed at business, the avoiding of disputes, mitigation and contracts, as well as debt recovery and helping businesses before they financially trip up.
Legatus has worked for the subcontractors of big names such as Primark, Sainsbury’s, and Manchester Justice courts and no doubt will continue to grow in the coming year.
Projecting the need to employ 2 more people in the new year from leeds consultants and various other employees in commercial and litigations.
Rashmi has attributed Legatus’s success to “purely hard work, working in London and knocking on doors, and working through social media, we ended up getting quite a bit more work, to the point where we thought, you know what we can’t keep turning up and going to coffee shops.”
Rashmi also said “our base is still up in Yorkshire, in Leeds, and because of the systems such as Cloud, it is quite easily done.”
“What’s going well for the Yorkshire economy is that there are businesses across the UK and across the globe that want to do business with Yorkshire companies, you don’t have to be London based.”
