City Expansion Signals Head Hunt For Best Legal Talent In Brighton & Hove

14 Dec 2016

DMH Stallard has announced a major expansion in Brighton.


DMH Stallard is one of the largest law firms in the south east and will increase its presence in the city centre with around 30 solicitors and support staff moving into its new suite of offices in Jubilee Street.


The move will involve the relocation of senior partners and other staff from the DMH Stallard office at Gatwick and the recruitment of the best legal talent from other firms in Brighton & Hove.


DMH Stallard already employs nearly 300 staff including over 60 partners and also has offices in London, Gatwick and Guildford. It was recently confirmed in the Top 100 law firms in the UK after reporting revenues of over £24million and is 7th in the ranking of greatest growth in 2016.


In addition to digital, media and technology businesses, as well as family and real estate, the team will include a strategic focus on the private client sector, an area of expertise that the boss at DMH Stallard believes is currently lacking in Brighton.


Richard Pollins, Managing Partner, said:


“Our feedback from both entrepreneurs and private individuals has repeatedly underlined the view that there is a place in the market in Brighton and Hove for high quality, specialist legal advice from a larger firm like ours.


“We have been working closely with our network of contacts and have already made several appointments that will be confirmed in the coming weeks. Our existing teams are exceptionally well regarded for what they do, and we are confident that together we will be able to provide a first class range of services to these client groups.” 


With the larger Brighton team starting in January, work is underway on refurbishing offices (pictured) in the central city location to accommodate the growth.


Richard added:


“I’m so proud of Brighton & Hove. Its culture, diversity, ambition and attitude mark it out in the UK and I love that distinction - it makes our expansion in the city even more special for me.”
