Kirwans boosts services with new office location and key hires

Leading law firm Kirwans has bolstered its service offering by moving its Liverpool office to the heart of the Commercial District and announcing the appointments of two specialist lawyers.

The new city centre office at 1 Temple Square, Dale Street, Liverpool, will complement the firm’s existing offices in Prenton and Moreton, Wirral and Southport.

Newly appointed associate Julie Hunter and solicitor Lindsey Knowles have joined the team to further enhance the development and expansion of the firm’s commercial and personal legal services.

Julie Hunter, formerly of Bermans, brings a wealth of commercial expertise to Kirwans’ litigation department, in particular in the areas of business disputes including finance litigation, asset finance and loan agreements.

Lindsey Knowles, who joins the firm from Percy Hughes and Roberts and is an active member of the Employment Law Committee of Liverpool Law Society, will further enhance Kirwans’ current employment law offering, working on a broad range of employment matters on behalf of employers and employees alike.

Managing Partner David Kirwan, whose late father founded the firm in 1947, said: “Kirwans is committed to expanding our services in Liverpool, and the new location together with the key appointments of Julie and Lindsey underline our determination to do just that.  

"The organisation’s longstanding success has been built on the high standard of service delivered to our clients by our talented and much-valued team. This is an exciting time for the firm as we welcome new faces and grow our service offering throughout the UK."
