The organisation has established two panels. The largest covers 15 areas of law including regeneration and economic development. Addleshaw Goddard, Cobbetts, Eversheds, Hammonds, Pinsent Masons and Walker Morris have been appointed to this roster.

The other panel is made up of three firms and covers company/commercial, litigation, information and property law.

Firms have been appointed for three years, with an option for Yorkshire Forward to extend the term for a further 12 months.

Chief executive of Yorkshire Forward Tom Riordan commented: “The growth of the legal community in Yorkshire and Humber is a real regional success story and we wanted to ensure that the two new panels were open to all firms in the region, whether large or small.
