Keoghs Solicitors is opening a new purpose-built office in Bolton to accommodate 300 staff.

The new building will consolidate the law firm's six Bolton offices.

“This move is intended to resolve the increasing logistical problems we have encountered travelling between offices,” said new chief executive Paul Smith.

With a £15m plus turnover, Keoghs is one of the leading insurance litigation practices and acts for most of the leading players in the UK insurance industry.
