Devonshires Leeds Office celebrates its fourth Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to our Leeds office, which is celebrating its fourth anniversary tomorrow!

Since opening in 2017, our Leeds office has truly gone from strength to strength, and the team has firmly established its practice and presence in Yorkshire and the North.

In the last year alone, the practice has made a name for itself in the region:

  • In December 2020, our Leeds office was awarded with the ‘Banking and Finance Award’ at the 2020 Yorkshire Legal Awards, which recognises those who have a demonstrable achievement in banking or finance.
  • A year ago, we moved to larger office premises at No 1 Whitehall Riverside, firmly cementing our commitment to the North with our expansion.
  • Elad Yasdi, Partner in our Real Estate & Projects team, is the fifth Partner to join our Leeds team and recently relocated to expand our growing Real Estate & Projects offering in the North.
  • Our expansion continues with the double hire of two new Solicitors.

Our Leeds office now houses 17 staff, and is a cross departmental team offering a broad scope of services to clients, led by Partners Chris Drabble (Securitisation) and Gary Grigor (Banking). Other Partners include Kirsty Thompson (Employment & Pensions), Elad Yasdi (Real Estate & Projects) and Richard Anderson (Construction & Engineering).

Partner Gary Grigor says “We are absolutely delighted to celebrate our fourth anniversary here in Leeds! Our growing practice, coupled with our new office location which offers a brilliant opportunity for regional growth, clearly demonstrates our commitment to the region and to our client base – we are looking forward to what the future holds!”

Partner Chris Drabble says “We’ve made big strides in the past four years since opening the doors to our Leeds practice. With our client base across the North growing, we are extremely happy to be celebrating our fourth anniversary. We are looking forward to further developing our Northern practice, and serving our growing client base nationally and across the region.”
