North-West firm Knight & Sons has won a four-way beauty parade held by the UK subsidiary of German industrial lubricant company Fuchs.
Fuchs UK operates in Hanley, Staffordshire and Belper, Derbyshire.
Twenty-partner Knight & Sons is based in Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire and has recently opened a Manchester office.
Fuchs UK managing director Michael Kost explained: "We wanted all our legal work to be handled by one firm. We needed a first class team, with sound legal skills. Knight & Sons fitted the bill and also clearly demonstrated an understanding of our business and how they can add value to what we do."
Knight's client care partner for Fuchs, Steve Elder, said: "This is obviously excellent news for our team.
"We have proved that an international plc does not have to go to a major city for legal advice. It can be found rather nearer to home!"
The other three firms in the beauty parade were national and major regional firms.
