Law firm Brabners to open new Leeds office at One City Square as it hires new partners

The law firm Brabners has revealed the location of its new Leeds office and announced the appointment of three partners as it aims to become a major force in the Yorkshire legal market.

The firm, which is due to open its fourth UK office in Leeds this summer, will occupy the first floor of One City Square, joining Deloitte, LDC and Schroders at the city centre development.

A spokesman said: “Brabners has moved swiftly to build its presence in Yorkshire, with Marcus Armstrong now being joined by fellow corporate partner Chris Peace and real estate partners Edwina Hewson and Kieran Wilkinson. All four partners have joined the firm from Knights, having previously been part of the Shulmans team acquired by Knights in 2020.”
