International commercial law firm announces launch of new Leeds office
Hill Dickinson, the International commercial law firm, has announced the launch of a new office in Leeds to service its national health practice.
The firm has recruited corporate health partner Rob McGough from Capsticks to join the new office, which will open in September.
Rob, who specialises in commercial matters in the health sector, brings more than 20 years’ experience to the role.
He will jointly head up the Leeds office with Hill Dickinson health litigation partner Mike McKenna, who will ensure all round support and assistance from the wider team.
The firm’s health practice currently operates out of offices in Liverpool, Manchester and London. Its expansion into Leeds follows on from a number of new client wins for the health team over the last 12 months.
Rob said: “The chance to join Hill Dickinson and lead our expansion into a Leeds office is a fantastic opportunity to build on the existing strengths of the firm in a city where the legal sector has grown faster than any other UK city over the past decade.
“Hill Dickinson has an exceptional reputation in the health sector, and I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to join the team.”
Andrew Craggs, Hill Dickinson head of health, added: “As a result of the health team’s recent growth in London, the South East and North West of England, Leeds was the natural next strategic location for us.
“We’re delighted with our expansion and look forward to announcing a number of senior lateral hires to join our Leeds office in the coming months.”
CEO Peter Jackson commented: “Leeds is a great location for Hill Dickinson, not just for the health team, but for the broader firm.”
