Posted on 07 February 2014
Leigh Day has announced that it is to open a Manchester office for personal injury cases from April 1st 2014 based at Central Park Business Centre, within riding distance of the headquarters of British Cycling at Sportcity.
The firm exclusively provides legal support and assistance to members of both British Cycling and the British Triathlon Federation who have been injured as a result of road traffic incidents. Andrew Bradley, a former Partner at Pannone, has been appointed to run the Manchester team.
The cycling team will continue to provide support in the London office for cyclists as the sport’s popularity continues to grow exponentially across the UK.
The firm’s personal injury team handles a large number of complex, often precedent-setting cases each year, and is particularly strong in industrial disease cases.
Head of Personal Injury at Leigh Day, Sally Moore, said: “We are very proud to be moving to Manchester. This office puts us right in the heart of cycling in the country and gives us the opportunity to bring our expertise on all personal injury matters to the City.”
Andrew Bradley added: “I’m relishing the challenge of setting up a new office. We are currently recruiting up to ten legal colleagues to come and work with us in Manchester and hope to grow the office substantially in the coming years.
“I will be ensuring that the move brings further benefits for members of both British Cycling and British Triathlon as the service we have been providing to them for the last 12 years becomes even more responsive."
