Personal ;injury ­boutique Greenwoods is to open a City office as part of ongoing expansion plans.

The office will open at the end of February, when the firm will move its catastrophic injury practice and property, insurance and construction practice to Gracechurch Street, EC3.

Senior executive Malcolm Henke said Greenwoods had ­traditionally dealt with defending professional ­liability and employers’ ­liability claims for insurers.

“Now insurers are asking for broader advice and ­looking at professional risks, ­regulatory and health and safety work,” he added.

As such, Greenwoods aims to establish a professional risks practice in the new office.
