Lancashire's Farleys Solicitors has moved into the crowded Manchester market, opening its seventh office.
The firm will specialise in fraud and money laundering in the city, with special casework unit head Paul Schofield moving from its Blackburn headquarters for the launch.
The 75-lawyer firm will also offer general corporate and commercial, family law and corporate and personal insolvency work from Manchester.
Schofield said the firm is planning to turn the Manchester move into more national work for the special casework unit, which only takes cases through recommendations.
"Being a provincial firm, naturally we can compete with many Manchester firms on price, but our quality has been at the centre of our growth in East Lancashire and will be the key to our success in Manchester," said Schofield.
