"It is a privilege for me to lead the Manchester office and grow the second base for Anthony Collins Solicitors – a critical platform to further build on our social purpose mission. We are excited to be able to offer a point of difference to the Manchester legal market – actively recruiting like-minded individuals who are committed to improving lives, communities and society.
The firm has worked on a number of key projects that have delivered real social impact both in the North West but also nationally, so I am looking forward to welcoming talented individuals to the fold in this great city as we strengthen our presence here."
