Partner says new office will ’allow us to seamlessly integrate with our insurer clients’

Keoghs has opened a new office in Leeds as it looks to integrate and align its single source services with brokers and insurers across Yorkshire and surrounding areas.

The new office will be based in the centre of Leeds and house teams from Keoghs’ corporate and sector risk (CSR) practice, a statement released yesterday (17 July 2023) said.

“[This] will allow the CSR team to position, integrate and align its single source services more closely for major and mid-market corporates and the associated broking and insurer markets across the region,” it added.

Connie Cobb, who is a partner at Keoghs, said: “The opening of the new Leeds office will allow us to seamlessly integrate with our insurer clients based in and around the city.

“Being in close proximity on a more regular basis will help us to continue to support our clients with added-value activities such as case clinics, strengthening our existing relationships and evidencing our on-going commitment to the insurance industry.”

’Positive difference’

Keoghs is the legal solutions arm of technology insurance solutions firm Davies.

The firm has expertise in retail, transport and logistics, leisure and hospitality, food and drink, power energy and utilities and construction. 

It said it was currently targeting strategic hires and would invest in talent across Yorkshire and surrounding areas after opening the new office in Leeds.

Andrew Evans, head of Keoghs CSR, added: “Client and market demand has meant that we have wanted to be in Yorkshire, the Humber and surroundings markets for the past couple of years and we are delighted that this aspect of our strategy is now being realised.  

“We cannot wait to work with all of our new colleagues and clients joining us and to welcome even more over the coming months and years. 

“It’s great to be here, making a positive difference in this region and enjoying our work and the area as we do so.”
