Overview in Yorkshire And The Humber

Legal activity in Yorkshire and the Humber is centred around the booming Leeds market, home to many national and international law firms, including the so-called ‘Big Six’ - Addleshaw Goddard, DLA Piper, Eversheds Sutherland, Pinsent Masons, Squire Patton Boggs and Walker Morris. Property development, corporate transactions and investment work drive much activity in the market, which also features strong regional firms such as Clarion, Lupton Fawcett, Schofield Sweeney, Shulmans and Gordons. Sheffield, the second largest market in the region, is a hub for manufacturing clients, while Andrew Jackson, Rollits and Gosschalks are the key players in Hull, which has been aiming to establish itself as a national centre for renewable energy.
