Leeds and Manchester firm Cobbetts has formed an EU alliance with Brussels competition and trade law specialist Stanbrook & Hooper.
The link-up is non-exclusive but the firms will pitch together to potential clients for EU law work and will engage in joint seminars and other marketing activities. Stanbrooks has similar alliances with other firms, including Garrigues in Spain.
“It’s more than a referral relationship in that we’ll be doing a lot of joint work and pitches, but it’s not exclusive,” said Stanbrooks senior partner Clive Stanbrook.
