Positively Peterborough

Law firms unite to promote City's professional expertise


Four of Peterborough's top law firms offering commercial services have suspended normal professional rivalries to create a new group which will promote the city's reputation for high quality legal expertise.

The Greater Peterborough Law Group will be inaugurated on 11 April with the objective of demonstrating that local legal practices can match the professional expertise of lawyers in London and other big cities at much more cost-effective rates.

The initiative was suggested by Gloria Milne, chief executive of Greater Peterborough Investment Agency, in support of the agency's campaign to attract inward investment and relocations.

Mrs Milne said: "When companies consider relocation options they need to be satisfied that Peterborough can provide a diverse range of facilities and services. In addition to obvious things such as suitable properties and development land, skilled workers and good transport connections, they are looking for a high quality business infrastructure.

"We want to help relocating companies to make their more as seamless and uncomplicated as possible. So we need to assure them that Peterborough can offer all the professional expertise they will need, including the highest quality legal services.

"Peterborough's commercial law practices already service the needs of clients who have a national and international reputation and we want to promote that level of expertise to companies planning to relocate."

The four founding members of the Greater Peterborough Law Group are Hunt & Coombs, Greenwoods, Hegarty & Co and Buckle Mellows, who together have a total of more than 70 lawyers offering corporate and commercial legal services.

Already the group has developed its own website and future initiatives will include a comprehensive awareness programme which will promote Peterborough's legal expertise still further. The message will be presented at a London seminar later in the year.

Quentin Bambridge from Hunt & Coombs said: "We service the needs of thousands of commercial clients including national and international organisations and we want to raise awareness of the range, complexity and excellent standards of commercial legal work which is already being carried out in Peterborough.

"By helping to promote the benefits of relocating to Greater Peterborough we will be contributing to the area's economic growth. Companies do not need to engage high-priced legal services from big law firms in major cities such as London, Leeds or Manchester."
