Martyn Jennings and Richard Burcher are have announced that the firm has joined forces with Victoria Morrison-Hughes of Kings Legal Costings, to launch a new Burcher Jennings Manchester office.

With an increasing demand for specialist services in relation to costs, pricing and funding, this now represents the firm’s fourth UK office to support locally based law firms.

The new office opens on 4 January and is based in Wilmslow. It is led by costs lawyer, Victoria Morrison-Hughes who has been operating as Kings Legal Costings for the past 11 years.

A qualified costs lawyer with a degree in accountancy and finance, coupled with her experience working as a lawyer in high street practice provides Victoria with unique insight into both the operational and technical demands of a legal business.

Her main areas of expertise include commercial litigation, clinical negligence, catastrophic injury, Court of Protection and solicitor and own-client disputes together with costs management and negotiations.

Victoria said: ‘To ensure all law firms in the region have access to our services and without compromising quality control, our aim has been to identify a reputable and forward-thinking partner which shares similar values. Burcher Jennings was the perfect fit especially in relation to client care and service where the priority rests on quality and ensuring clients receive a bespoke service.’

The opening of the Manchester office follows a year of significant growth for Burcher Jennings, during which time the company also launched the ‘Burcher Jennings Funding for Growth’ scheme.
