We've got some exciting news...
As part of our expansion into the North West, we're opening an office in the heart Manchester, located on 76 King Street, with its opening set for January 2019.
Partner Jonathan Cox will lead recruitment and day-to-day operations at the Grade II listed building.
"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." Jonathan Cox, Partner and head of Anthony Collins Solicitors’ Manchester office
Our first senior hire to be made is Natalie Barbosa, a senior associate and previous head of legal at children’s charity Barnado’s. Natalie has moved to help grow the firm’s charity and social care sectors, working with national clients such as the Salvation Army, Mind and Scope, alongside a large network of adult care providers.
"While a profit-making law firm, working here feels like being part of a real movement – one that holds social impact at its heart and is driven in its pursuit of justice. I joined Anthony Collins Solicitors to make a difference, across my appointed sectors and in a wider context. As we expand our team in Manchester, I look forward to supporting the firm’s commitment to improving people’s lives, regionally and nationally." Natalie Barbosa, Senior Associate
