A LAW firm based in Liverpool has expanded into Yorkshire by opening an office in Huddersfield.
EAD Solicitors has recruited eight former members of Thornleys Solicitors to the EAD team’s offices at the Media Centre, Northumberland Street. The team will continue to focus on providing services to members of the Unite trade union in the region.
EAD Solicitors has a strong reputation for personal injury and employment litigation and has close links with the trade union movement across the north and beyond.
Tom Doherty (pictured), a founding partner of EAD Solicitors and a specialist in high-value personal injury claims for trade union members, said: “We are proud to be one of the main legal service providers for a number of major trade unions in the UK.
“Our new base in Huddersfield means that we are now able to extend our work for Unite to the east and the west of the Pennines and into Manchester.
“Our new staff in Huddersfield will be a real asset to us in extending EAD’s geographical reach and we are delighted to be taking such a positive step to increase our union work.”
EAD Solicitors was founded in 1974 and has the Legal Services Commission Quality Assurance Mark for dealing with medical negligence, fraud and criminal law.
