In brief: London market, West Country prices

West country lawyers Foot & Bowden has moved into the heart of London's marine, insurance and financial sector. Situated next to the Baltic Exchange, Foot & Bowden hopes to attract more corporate clients by competing in the London market at Plymouth prices. Foot & Bowden's main offices are based in Plymouth. “We are still relatively new to the London market,” said Trevor Davis, partner of Foot & Bowden. “But we are recognised as a growing force and expect to see very positive results from this latest move.”
