National legal consultancy, Burcher Jennings, is set to open its first office in Cornwall.
The move, says the company, is a further response to an increasing demand for specialist services in relation to costs, pricing and funding, and to ensure law firms in the West Country have even greater access to qualified professionals in this field.
The new office, which opens in Truro on February 1, will be headed up by Neil Lobb (pictured).
Lobb, who has worked with a number of firms throughout Truro and the south west, is a former Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives.
Burcher Jennings CEO, Martyn Jennings, said: “We are delighted to have Neil on board. With his background as a practising qualified lawyer, he is clearly an invaluable asset when working with law firms; his experience provides for a greater understanding of clients’ needs.”
Burcher Jennings also has offices Manchester, London, Carlisle and Exeter.
