Situated on Silvester Street, the office will focus primarily on corporate and personal insolvency. Directors Philip Deyes and Andrew Mackenzie will jointly run the Hull operation.
Philip Deyes said: “We have an existing number of clients in the area but it was considered important to build upon those existing relationships and improve our service to those clients by having a permanent presence in the city. Hull has a vibrant business community and a number of professional service providers such as accountants, business advisers, finance brokers, banks and other lenders, all of whom we hope to continue to work with closely out of our Hull office.”
The move follows the opening of an office in Newcastle earlier this year and underlines the Group’s determination to develop as a major force in insolvency, turnaround and related professional property support services.
